Wintertime at Wisley

[ Photo Blog #53 ]

Wisley is the historic home of the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS).  It is packed with horticultural inspiration and is undoubtedly one of the finest gardens in the world.   The garden at Wisley in Surrey, England, is one of four gardens in the U.K maintained by the RHS.   Within its 240 acres, its many different areas demonstrate, whatever the season, the best in British gardening practices.

My photograph album this week takes me back to a visit in the January of 2002.  It was a Sunday morning, bright but extremely cold following a night of hard frost.  The gardens at this time held a special beauty, quite different from my previous and subsequent visits which were normally in the Spring and Summer.

Frosted Statuary – looks like Queen Victoria’s profile

An icy coating for this plant
