Part of my Birthday celebrations were visits to
some of those gardens you're always hearing about.
This one is Sissinghurst, home to the writer Vita Sackville West.
I will let the images do the talking.
More info below.
The infamous 'white garden'
as seen from the tower.
Sissinghurst in Kent is now run by the National Trust,
you will find it open on most days.
The garden is open at 11,
though you can get there earlier.
You will need at least 2 to 3 hours to fully enjoy all the gardens,
however you can pop in and out with your ticket
for refreshments or to sit on the lawn and soak it all in!
We climbed the stairs in the tower first to help
us get our bearings...and to locate the white garden!
I would suggest going in June to enjoy the white garden at its best,
as the rose on the centre pergola was already over.
I really enjoyed Sissinghurst.....
but not as much as Great Dixter..
