A very early start this morning - Wakehurst Place were opening at 6:30 am for season ticket holders, so we could enjoy seeing all the trees in the early Autumn morning mists. So we set the alarm to 6:00 am - unfortunately the clocks went back last night and the mist was already burning off! So we didn't get any 'misty ' photos ..... but early morning sun on Autumn foliage is just as good :-)
We had a full English breakfast at the end of our wander, which was lovely, then looked for Christmas presents in the shop. Sadly it was an hour and a half before they were able to open (Sunday trading laws) so we made a note of what we wanted and will go back in a few weeks.
All in all, worth the early start .... and we have 250+ photos to prove it!
