Photo-a-Week Challenge

Week 5 – 46. Tell a story


This week’s photo was taken at the Royal Horticultural Society’s gardens at Wisley in Surrey. We have had two visits there this week. One for a macro photoshop organised by one of our Camera Club members and the other to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary. There has been an ‘Alice in Wonderland’ theme in the Gardens this summer as well as a sculpture trail. On our first visit there were people going round the garden dressed as characters from the book speaking to the children. We spotted this on the way out. They were very realistic.

  4. It looks large. How tall is it?


  5. What a great shot! Your colors are great. Sounds like a fun place to visit.


    • It is, Marie. It’s a good place for photography, checking up on their vegetables and getting inspiration for the garden, the food is good, there are workshops and children’s activities. There is a flower show soon and an apple day. They do trials for plants and vegetables etc. They also do degrees in Horticulture. All in all we are very lucky to have it on our doorstep.

  7. Hello Trudie, I came across this picture, and have enjoyed reading the comments attached. Just thought you would like to know they are made of fibre-glass and resin, and I made them myself! So I’m very glad you like them. I have more strange work at, website is a working progress! From Abby Martin


    • Thank you for the information, Abby. I visited your website and enjoyed the slideshow of your work. I like the organic shapes and the way they blend into their surroundings. The expressions on the owls’ faces are clever. They made me smile. I shall look out for more of your work on our visits out and about.
