I’ve been visiting Wisley Gardens in Surrey for as long as I can remember.

There’s nothing quite like it 

Peaceful corners

where you can sit,

stare at the greenery

and watch the world go by.


A million and one pathways to explore 

leading to Secret Gardens,

JaPaNeSe PaGoDaS

and

a thousand shades of green…


A rainbow of flowers

carpet the ground

Bees

BuZZzzzz in the air

SUMMER HAS ARRIVED

As much as I love to get away and jump on a plane at every given opportunity, being in the middle of a masters and rather broke means that most days I only venture as far as my back garden in Surrey.

These last couple of weeks the mini heatwave we have been having has coaxed all of the flowers in my garden out and its awash with colour. One of my favourite things about spring in England is the explosion of flowers and trees into life. It manages to make  me feel a little bit like I’ve escaped to a tropical paradise. Japanese red maple leaf dancing in the sun (left) and mauve anemone blanda (below).
