On October 16th, we visited RHS Garden Wisley to see the Autumn colours. We were not disappointed; the trees and shrubs were golden and russet and the flower borders were still magnificent with grasses and beautiful Autumn-flowering plants. Wisley is lovely at any time of the year and richly deserves the award of the nation’s favourite garden. The morning was fine and misty but in the afternoon we experienced the eeriest phenomenon of a red sun and dark skies caused but a storm over Ireland bringing sand from the Sahara. However, this did not spoil what was a very enjoyable day.
