RHS Garden Wisley – One of the World’s Great Gardens

This is a repeat post in honour of the wonderful flowers at Wisley.

The RHS Garden Wisley in Surry, England is one of the World’s Great Gardens. In the gardens is a vast glasshouse with three climatic zones. The glasshouse is home to a breath takingly beautiful collection of orchids.

Our good friends in England took us to the gardens last year.

Here are some pictures I took during that inspiring visit.

I don’t know the names of the orchids but perhaps words cannot do justice to their beauty!

Please enjoy the wonder of God’s creation.

Mozart and Connie’s Cottages

There is an exquisite garden in Montagu in the Western Cape of South Africa. The garden is part of Connie’s Cottages which are self catering. The garden is much more extensive than shown in the one picture below. The beautifully planned garden reminded me of the theme from Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto. Recently we stayed at the Cottages. When we returned home I played the clip below as a small thank you to the owner Connie, for a really happy visit. And. Thank you Connie for allowing me to play your precious piano.

This post was not solicited. It is a genuine thank you
