Wandering at RHS Wisley Gardens

Met a friend today at Wisley Gardens.  There is a Christmas Event where there are very large lit flowers.. and other lighting within the garden.  Being daylight the full effect is not visible.

The work has now started to build the new visitors centre... it's a huge project .. some views..

The existing cafe..

and off through the Pinetum..

Stopped in the bird hide ( I was there the day it opened a few years ago)

Birds seen from the hide:
Blue, Great and Coal Tits
Grey Heron

A wander along the river

then into the gardens

Stopped for a cuppa before going into the Greenhouse

Rudolph with his sleigh and helpers..

and a 'living' bed for this teddy...

and this teddy was at the other end

and Frank decided it looked rather nice

Lots of Cacti and succulents

and we continued our walk..

A wire sculpture at the top of the hill - just a shame the sky was grey today!!

Oooh luck - a Mallard

We'd walked towards the orchards where we saw Field Fares and Redwings..

and on our way out.... a group of Siskins... also a Sparrowhawk flew out of the tree in front of us... A good day's unintentional birding!!

Lovely stroll, and great company... good day out...
