Wordless Wednesdays: Autumn at Hampton Court!

I am soo lucky to live in the middle point between RHS Wisley Garden and Kew Gardens, two of the most inspiring Gardens of England. And just 10 mins from Hampton Court, the fabulous royal residence on the Thames where Capability Brown lived and worked for nearly 20 years.

I love walking through the 'Wilderness' up to his former house, imaging how was the garden at his times and admiring the suave change of the seasons and of colours...

Wordless Wednesdays: Autum at KEW Gardens!

Hello and Welcome back at Mercurelli's!
This past few days have been quite diverse and I cannot count my blessings!
I put down pencil & mouse and I spent the week out, working again with Julia Wylie, attending the SGD Autumn Conference, the Futurescape Show... and visiting KEW Gardens again!
I am soo luckly to have them, Wisley and Hampton Court Gardens on my doorstep, and I often wish to can bring all of you with me in my pocket during these garden tours and visits!
Waiting for a magic laptop transporter screen, here the photos of the day:
The tour started with the Japanese Garden, my favourite spot!

{I Love how the Pachisandra terminalis 'Green Carpet' has been used!}

...Then it continued on the Tree Walk...
{Lift to the Tree Walk. I think it comes from Mars!}

{Fantastic View of the Glasshouse from the Tree Walk}

{On the opposite side, you can spot the Pagoda
borrowed from the Japanese Landscape }
{Close-up on the Pagoda. This beauty was completed in 1762}
  ...and we ended up at the Palm House, after a fantastic cake at the Orangery cafè!

{View from the top of the glasshouse. Could spend hours up here!}
{Fantastic details of the Pal House, dating back to the 1848!}

to spend hours sketching and photographing them!}
