RHS Garden Wisley (Part 1)

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.

Australia is not only the land of the kookaburra. It also has magnificent scenery. There are also many beautiful flowers.

Today my wife and her Australian friend were chatting about this and that and they got onto the subject of the flowers in her Australian garden. We asked her to send some pictures, which she did with some comments.

Here are some of the pictures with comments.
