Sculpture by Paul Cocksedge
Wakehurst consists of over 500 acres of wild woodland and is part of the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew. I spent a day exploring and sketching this amazing place in the heart of Sussex.
Kew Gardens is home to some majestic old trees, some of which are several thousand years old! This mighty oak reminded me of something out of a fairytale. As I sat sketching, I was almost expecting it to come to life and unfurl its beautiful twisted trunk.
