Every day leaves are all around us. Amazing organs of photosynthesis . Last weekend I visited Wisley the gardens of the RHS in Surrey.
The Leaves were the star of the show. The Autumn colours were still stunning even though it was nearly the end of November.
The leaves in the glasshouses were stunning in all shapes and some incredible sizes.
There is a very large glasshouse at Wisley with a temperate area full of fantastic tree ferns which I really love. There is a tropical area and a dry desert zone. It is brilliantly planted and worth a visit.
The flowers in the tropical house are rather good too !
Changing zones and walking into dry desert.
The Alpine houses are a short walk through the grounds and were also full of colour and some wonderful plants.
Wisley is a fantastic place to visit. It is signposted at junction 10 of the M25. A world tour of plants ( and leaves) all in one wonderful spot.
