The Isabella Plantation

I was recently on a work trip to London and my colleague took me to Richmond Park and we went for a walk through the Isabella Plantation. This place is truly stunning and a feast for the eyes. We came at the right time of the year as all the Azaleas and the Rhododendrons were in their full glory. I walked into a wall of sweet smells and bright vivacious colours as I entered through the beautiful wrought iron gate.

Winding paths
A child’s paradise
Kurume Azaleas
Kurume Azaleas
Azaleas
Azaleas and Rhododendrons
The wild stream
Peg’s pond

These little mandarin ducks take time to reflect on the important things in life!

  1. Thank you for alerting me to this! If I ever get back to London, this will be near the top of the list for certain.

  2. It looks absolutely incredible. The photo of Peg’s Pond is inspiring.

    • It really is so beautiful and peaceful. The photograph does no justice really. We were lucky in that there were no tourists there at that time. It was a great moment for reflection and mindfulness.

  3. Great photos. It seems like whenever my wife and I travel we get there just a few weeks before things bloom!
