It was like a beacon drawing us closer and I couldn't help but think of what Medieval pilgrims must have made of this sight for the first time and how awestruck they must have been.

Before we left, as dusk was falling we watched mesmerised the light sculpture of twelve illuminated elements each representing a month of the year, created by Limbic Cinema.

Dotted around we noticed little quotes such as one that read, "like a soft pale dawn on a spring morning with a fragile promise of warmth".

As we trekked, we joined a band of other explorers through Bloomers Valley, part of Wakehurst's 500 acre site.

On route we listened to a soundscape inspired by the underground communication network that links trees & fungi to each other, and which they use to exchange info & nutrients.

Days Out in Sussex - Wakehurst Botanic Gardens
It was our 1st visit to Wakehurst Botanic Gardens near Haywards Heath, the country cousin of Kew Gardens where we had gone for an after-hours interactive art experience called the Wonder Project.
