A Good Day Out: Wisley


The Canal at the entrance to the gardens

I’m feeling like a wet rag today and all because I had a lovely day out yesterday, going up to RHS Wisley gardens with a friend. We were terribly lucky with the weather; just one very heavy shower which sent everyone scuttling into the glasshouse. There’ve been many changes since I was last there, which my friend was eager to point out to me. The glasshouse is one, very effectively seeming to float on the lake, with grasses rippling around it and a rail which makes you feel you’re on the deck of a ship.
