Sissinghurst Gardens..one room at a time




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.

and then their are the fields and meadows....


I will save that for another time...

Best wishes my green thumbed friends,

  1. Hello Jean

    I don't think I could ever get enough of Sissinghurst.

    These images are dreamy - Oh to sneak in and live here for a month and paint. I could live on a meal a day

    Thank you for this joy

    Helen
