A winter visit to Wisley


Well it was March actually, but still quite wintry.

We walked past the rockery from the base.

we saw hellebores of various types

we saw a beautiful camellia

and in the glasshouses we found a lovely lithodora

the colour in the alpine house was very impressive

we looked down on the rockery from above

we learnt how the banana trees are being protected

and said goodbye to Wisley beside the waterfull.

The we took refuge in the wonderful shop and bought some souvenirs. I finally got my compost scoop which I have been looking for for a long time! (How sad is that…)

I cant wait to get back there in the spring!
