I had a trip to Wisley the other weekend and took my camera. Apology's Paul if I'm treading on your toes, I am sure Maggi will find a suitable punishment :D.

Near the main entrance someone had been very busy with some apples, making a design from a local school.

The meadow was still looking good,

33057-1

with Crocus speciosus

33059-2

and Crocus nudiflorus.

33061-3

Up the rock garden !

33063-4

In the alpine house were an assortment of cyclamen and crocus ;D.

33065-5

Crocus niveus MS658

33067-6

Crocus longiflorus MS967
Does anybody grow the two MS forms ;).

33069-7

A very nice form of Crocus mathewii with a dark tube.

33071-8

Finally one last thing caught my eye Massonia pygmaea.
There were others in bud which we might get to see in the proper log.

Goodness me, that Apple display is wonderful, though I would rather eat them than see them, no matter how atttractive!

Wow, that Crocus mathewii is stunning.  That sort of colouration just doesn't look like a Crocus.  Beautiful pics!!
Cheers.

What a simple but very effective display of Nerines. Doesn't need to be anything complicated to look good and show off the plants well, does it?
