Tucked away in the Sussex countryside, there is a smaller relation of Kew Gardens, Wakehurst Place. I have visited these gardens a few times before, but this time I decided to capture some of the amazing colours I usually see. I have chosen what stood out to me, although there is a huge amount of plants of all shapes and sizes from around the world, these recently were the most vibrant.
Starting with these gorgeous pink flowers.
Moving onto this strong orange. I decided to make the background monochrome to really make this amazing orange stand out. Great for the bees still hunting nectar.
Now this tissue looking flower in white
and finally lilac.
What really amazes me here is that the harder and closer I look, the more I find. I do not often stay on the main route, I like to rummage and see what I can find, which sometimes can be the most amazing little things. Especially in Wakehurst Place.
Just a note, Wakehurst Place is free to National Trust members but, the parking is not. But still definitely worth a afternoons visit.
