Rockery at Wisley

If you think I’m daft enough to climb all the way up there to get photographs of little trees at Wisley Gardens ?  Oh you do.  Oh well, fair enough then.  🙂

This one is 150 years old.  It was around before the first telephone was installed, successfully cared for all that time and has never received a telephone bill.  🙂

    • I am glad you enjoyed. I’ve checking the net. Some of these trees are several hundred years old. Perhaps being miniaturised is the the key to long life. I’ll let you know how I get on. 🙂
