Wisley dinosaur display

Today we walked from our hotel to the Royal Horticultural Society garden at Wisley. I was expecting it to be quiet as it is a dark and damp Wednesday in February, but actually it's school half term and they have a special dinosaur display.

The main action takes place in the glasshouse, which is heated and very steamy.

There was lots of fantastic corten dinosaurs, and this one is feeding from the top of a cactus. 

They would look amazing in my garden and I am strongly encouraging Darren to take up metalworking to make some for me.

They also had dinosaurs made from plants that took a bit of finding.

This pterodactyl is just about to sit on it's nest. 

We went round the whole display and then wandered around the grounds where everywhere is totally immaculate, and springing into life.

Snowdrops and tiny irises were everywhere and I have lots of ideas for my garden, including this.

I am going to try it with a prickly wild rose bush.

Afterwards, we went back to the dinosaurs again as it was much quieter, so we followed all the clues set up for the children and got my guidebook stamped for being a clever girl.
