Earlier this summer, I made a mad dash into Sissinghurst gardens,
30 minutes before closing. I vowed to go back, tried a few weeks later
and managed to sit on the M25 for six hours having to retreat as it closed yet again.
It was not meant to be this summer.
I want to tell you all about the Elizabehtan house set in fields and meadows
in the beautiful Kent landscape. I want to tell you about the owners,
Vita Sackville-West, poet, novelist, gardener and her husband, Harold Nicolson,
writer and diplomat. There is more to their story than you can imagine.
But that is another story.
I have many photographs from my 30 minute photo shooting spree..
waiting for my words. I think a cold winter's day and time
on hand will be required to write the post that I want to share, until then
please join me as we walk thru
Sissinghurst gardens....one room at a time.
June 11, 2011
and then their are the fields and meadows....
I will save that for another time...
Best wishes my green thumbed friends,
