It was such a pleasure to visit RHS Garden Wisley this week while staying with relatives in the beautiful Surrey Hills and what a day to choose – temperatures reached 20C! The soft autumn sunlight created glorious effects and reflections as it filtered through the trees and Nyssa sylvetica the aptly named ‘Wisley Bonfire’ gave brilliant colour. The last of the hydrangeas lined the woodland paths and there were many roses still in bloom and a spectacular display of dahlias in the trial garden. The grasses had turned golds and browns and were left along with the seedheads of other perennials to provide habitats for overwintering insects and food for winter birds.

  1. A place I would love to visit… sigh…
    I spy some handsome succulents 😉 Love the yellow rose (Elina, by any chance?), and also the composition of your two dahlias shot…!

    1. The succulents were amazing – how I wish I had a greenhouse/conservatory! I was rather remiss at taking note of the names of the flowers (forgot to pack my garden notebook!), so I don’t know the name of the yellow rose. The soft light was brilliant for taking photographs on that day.
