After a horrible week of car breakdowns and throat infections I was treated to a warming end to the weekend. Simon took me down to RHS Wisley Gardens yesterday, for the last few hours of daylight, so I could get some much needed fresh air and a revitalising dose of nature! After watching the birds from the hide for a while we just had time for a cuppa and cake, sitting outside the main restaurant, watching the sun dip behind the trees on Seven Acres, edging the scene with a golden hue that lifted both the colours and my spirits. This is my entry for the weekly Fotospeed challenge as it’s one I would absolutely love to have printed up and hanging on the wall!

I’ve been a bit quiet on here lately. One of the many reasons for my absence has been the creation of this gallery to send to all my family, friends, blogging buddies and followers, Seasons Greetings and Best Wishes for 2017! I just love the lighting display at RHS Wisley Gardens for Christmas!

This year they have outdone themselves with the beautiful floral light-sculptures, floodlit trees and the eerily-outlandish Glasshouse After Dark. Cacti and succulents are often quite alien in appearance but lit with neon-green, blue and red lights they really did become completely otherworldly and I LOVED it 🙂

So, Happy Holidays wherever you are in the world, and however you celebrate this special time of year! I’ll speak to you all in the New Year 🙂
