Six on Saturday: Glow

Earlier this week, Elder Daughter took me and The Poppet to Glow, the seasonal light installation at RHS Wisley. Those who have visited Wisley may recognise some of the features, albeit seeing them in a completely different way. The installation above was animated and accompanied by Tchaikovsky’s ‘Waltz of the Flowers’, the music I usually use with my End of Month videos (note to self, yet again I have overlooked an EOMV post…grrr!). Coloured lights projected onto the iconic Laboratory are reflected in the Jellicoe Canal in front of it – glorious!

Together with the above, please enjoy a further five glowing pictures of Wisley, my contribution to the Six on Saturday meme hosted by Jim of Garden Ruminations.

There was also a glorious display above the lake beside the glasshouses, with fire, water and laser lights alongside the lights and music, but sadly I was so mesmerised I didn’t take a still shot of it. All-in-all it was a most enjoyable visit and very different from the display at The Savill Gardens in Windsor Great Park, my treat last year, where the focus was more on the installations than on the garden features – both very worthwhile seasonal visits.
