A Sunny day at last

Hi

I made an impromptu visit to Wisley yesterday; it was an unexpectedly sunny day, and the ground was bursting into life. I don't have time for a detailed traveloque; there weren't many people around the garden, but there was a steady stream heading for the new glasshouse which is full of butterflies at the moment (and photographers). No pictures from there I'm afraid - it was too steamy hot and busy, and I didn't want to wait while my camera de-fogged.

My trip round the garden started on Battleston Hill, with a few early rhododendrons, and the witch-hazel in full bloom.

Meconopsis napaulensis

The frost was just melting from the leaves of this meconopsis.

Cyclamen coum

Of course, underfoot there were big patches of snowdrops, and cyclamen coum.

The Meadow and Rock Garden

The bulbs in the bank above the meadow and rock garden have also woken up, and the ground was a mass of Crocus tommasianus, Galanthus, and one memorable patch of Iris George.
