Easter Part 2

We have had a quiet few days at home, in between the quiet days we have been out and about. On Monday we visited RHS Wisley (RHS = Royal Horticultural Society) The RHS is the organisation who also puts on the Chelsea Flower Show as well as several other shows through the year.
Spring has been much colder this year which has held the growing season back. Wisley has lots of colour if you know where to look for it.
On the rockery many of the tiny daffodils and other flowers were beginning to show

 The Alpine House is filled with colour 

At the top of the rockery just outside the Alpine house are two beautiful cherry trees in bloom

In the glasshouse the Orchid exhibition which is on until 21st April was spectacular

We had an amazing day, Em needed some photographic material for her art project which she collected - 345 photos! and I thought I took a lot of pictures.  Wisley is a beautiful garden and one which I have know for many years. Orchids are one of my favourite plants so this was a perfect visit.

Hope you have a good week Jane
