Last week saw me escape to somewhere I visit often - RHS Wisley. The ever changing landscape is always a delight regardless of the time of year.
We mostly visit as a family although it’s a great place to potter around with a camera too. The upside to living such a short distance away from the RHS flagship garden.
This last visit saw me pass The Rocks then head left – in the opposite direction to The Glasshouse. Having had a quick nose around the orchard, I got distracted by these beauties and the Fruit Demonstration Garden before arriving at the Hillside.
There I stumbled on an incredible sight that almost took my breath away – a commemorative poppy field to mark the centenary of the First World War. You will find more photographs in this Poppy Magic post.
Having lingered a little too long with the poppies, I explored the nearby area before finding myself in this fabulous herb garden.
I’m not sure where I headed from there but I ended up in the magical Bowes-Lyon Rose Garden which truly is a sight to behold.
