Wisley Has Gone to Bed
We had a brief outing to Wisley Gardens yesterday. The gardening team have put the plants to bed for the winter. Everything is quiet.
The grasses have drooped over elegantly by the duck pond.
The ducks are snoring
This one was happily dozing on one leg in the water
There was still plenty of colour around. This flower bed was positively glowing
The Mahonia was superb in purple and green
Poppy enjoyed the wavy seat while she drank her juice.
There are whole patches of red stemmed dogwoods
These were not planted, but arranged in a wavy line for Christmas
Although most plants were resting, there was evidence that life was going on behind the scenes. These look like new leaves forming to me.
Some shrubs stay happily green all year round. Good for them!
As we left we passed the lovely old buildings of Wisley. Don’t they look festive and welcoming. Time for home and some tea. Nite nite Wisley, see you next year maybe.
