I love RHS Wisley Gardens, I am forever discovering new places within the grounds, and with the change of seasons there is the change of flowers and plants you see. This Saturday my mum and I decided to go there for a little walk, seeing as autumn is in full swing, we wanted to go and see the beautiful colours that come alongside the change of season. We weren’t disappointed!
What I didn’t realise was how big the orchard was! It went on for a while, we wandered up and down between the trees looking at the various different varieties and then looking in amazement at the size of some of the cooking apples! Of course, we had to sample one or two (we found some nice looking windfallen ones) which Oliver really enjoyed, he got really grumpy when we took the apple away!
We then went onto walk through the pear trees, they were absolutely dripping with pears, they looked so yummy! When we left the orchard we went to the fruit and veg patches, I was a bit disappointed to see there were no pumpkin plants left in the beds (we later found all the pumpkins in the restaurant).
We then headed back down the hill and popped into the restaurant for a cup of tea and slice of spiced pumpkin cake (it was delicious!). As we left the restaurant it started spitting, so we headed over to the entrance before it started chucking it down. Walking through the shop, browsing the Christmas selection and then heading home.
