Our first long trip in our electric car. 60 miles. It was fine, obviously, we had enough charge that we could have come back, but they had charge points there, so we used the opportunity to top up. One reason was to compare driving styles. Mine is more conservative, but at the end of both trips there was only a little bit of a difference.
We’ve been to Wisely several times over the past few years, each at different times of the year, The appearance of the gardens in each season is massively different. But each season brings a different set of experiences, all are lovely and well worth seeing.
The gardens are very colourful at the moment, and even though they were quite busy we didn’t feel crowded. We heard one of the staff saying that there were only 50 parking spaces available, and that was towards midday – so they have been busy. Not surprising really, it’s been a magnificent day. Good for the gardens.
I am not a gardener, I always say that you should never ask me to go and pull out the weeds. But I do like a good garden. I also like a good wild patch, Wisely as you might expect, has several. At least one specifically cultivated as such, and several areas that are undergoing various developments.
The layout of the site has changed a lot since the last time we were there, with the location of the entrance changing from one side of the Great House to the other. We were slightly disoriented by this, but we quickly learned our way around.
It was a lovely day, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. It was really nice to go somewhere else other than Gosport. It was lovely to see dear friends.
