A break in the clouds saw us head off to explore the magical quest that is the Enchanted Story Trail. Armed with a map of RHS Wisley, our mission was to discover the secret hideouts and burrows of a host of curious characters. From tropical treasures to plant-loving pirates, it promised festive magic at its most charming.
POD enjoyed Foraging for Father Christmas in the garden so we knew she’d love it.
Sometimes the best laid plans don’t quite work out the way they were intended! After queuing in the Glasshouse and reaching the front to discover there was another 20 minutes to wait, we cut our losses.
We’d been cooped up indoors for a couple of days so unperturbed we opted for a walk instead.
We re-visited the Christmas Display while we were in the Glasshouse then headed back outdoors. It was wet from downpours the day before but the sun appearing made for a beautiful day. The grounds looked as wonderful as they always do at Wisley.
It was only a matter of time before she got muddy – not that it deterred her!
She got to sit in an ancient tree that looked like it had eyes. Despite perching above Daddy, she loved it and would have stayed for some time given half a chance.
She then occupied herself under a tree investigating the acorns, chestnut husks, leaves and sticks that lay beneath it.
When she stretched to remove a dead leaf from the branches you could really see how much she’s grown these past months. Hard to believe she was three on Christmas Day!
