Lush gardens at the Vineyard Hotel in Cape Town

I love wandering around the beautiful gardens of the hotel on the banks of the Liesbeek River.  I have written a post about the gardens in April 2010 .. a different time … a different season.  This time it was misty and drizzly with the sun peeping through every now’n’again  …
