30th December

I managed to persuade Maurice to take me and Mum to RHS Wisley for the lumiere show:

The laboratory and pond were lit up with different colour lights.


Unfortunately it was raining, so my photos are not brilliant, because I didn’t want to keep my camera out in the rain for too long.  I took my tripod, but I really need to practise more with it, I am useless!

But inside the big new greenhouse was spectacular, and really rather spooky!  I love the ‘fairy grotto’ look to this photo!

And this path looks like it might lead to a fairy glen!

I have to say that the rain did spoil it for us, and it was really cold.

Wow what a lovely event! We go to Wisley quite a lot but I have never seen this. Might try to go next year as it looks spectacular! Lovely pics too!

How wonderful - lucky you! OUr local botanical gardens have a similar event but it was too cold to go this year - wind chills in the -30's so we didn't go :( Maybe next year! All the gardens were lit up with paper lanterns and it is supposed to be so beautiful - especially the Japanese gardens...

These pictures are just beautiful - you could use them on your cards!
