Winter Colour At RHS Wisley
Well the weather outside is frightful… as the song goes and with the storms lining up we have a thoroughly wet week to come. Yesterday it was another story entirely and since we were virtually passing the entrance to RHS Wisley whilst returning home after visiting family it was an opportunity not to miss.
The low, bright winter light catching the plant stems in the Glasshouse Border was truly beautiful, hues of pale gold and vibrant red being the stand outs, from the dogwood, evergreen bamboo and willow. Seed heads have been left in amongst them to give additional interest.
Crisply clipped beech hedging surrounds Fruit Mount with its coppery leaves still fully intact, providing fiery contrast to the pale rod straight grasses.
Deciduous trees stripped to their bare branches look somewhat other worldly and give an entirely different perspective to the entrance of the AGM Borders.
So much to enjoy until the first signs of Spring.
