Fine Art Botanic Gallery

I live next to Fernkloof Nature Reserve, Hermanus, South Africa. There is no other place on earth where so many different species can be seen growing in such close proximity. In Fernkloof more than 1400 species have thus far been collected and identified. Visit www.fernkloof.com for more info. The fragile nature of beauty is on display every where in this spectacular natural garden. Take a close up look!
