Blossoms and exotic butterflies at the RHS Wisley Gardens

We have had a mild winter in England so far (and now we’re feeling the chill in the air!), which resulted in early blossoms in the trees.

We were at the RHS Wisley Gardens at the weekend, and it was incredible to see blossoms and buds on the trees, even daffodils – little too early!

Snowdrops are everywhere and gorgeous to look at. We are expecting some frost and colder weather, so here is the hope for the blossoms to survive.

RHS Wisley Gardens are hosting the exotic butterflies at the Green House until February 26th and that really is worth seeing if you are around.

They are absolutely beautiful, and the tropical plants and the warm air transport you to exotic locations.

Hope you enjoy the butterflies!

    Beautiful to see signs of life on a dormant tree…and butterflies in winter is a promise of things to come in spring. Thanks for sharing these, Ozlem!

    Hi Özlem! We used to know Wisley so well! Amazing that there are signs of spring – here in Istanbul we are freezing and the snow is still coming! Your tours sound great! Take care …
