Macro Monday - the RHS Wisley Edition

Having been uninspired for pictures this week I thought I would show off a few pictures from our recent visit to RHS (Royal Horticultural Society) Gardens Wisley. Most of these are taken in the glasshouse and I'm afraid I have no idea what most of them are but they are pretty! Next time I should try and take notes but with two small children, a husband and my mother just keeping up and keeping them together was tricky let alone taking notes as well as photographs!
 
Possibly a bottle-brush?

Clock Vine flowers - also known as dolls shoe flowers - and they do look just like little shoes!

Maybe some sort of Hibiscus?

No idea what they are but these leaf shoots were so pretty

Blue Iris - stunning colour.

  4. Beautiful flowers! I never remember the names of the flowers either. Sometimes I take a pic of the name though, it's easier than writing something down.

  5. Hi there - that may be a bottle brush - hard to believe we have them in the wild here!

    Red brick is pretty common here - my house is built of them - but I liked the way that some had not stood the test of time too well.
