Day 7: Sissinghurst Castle Gardens

The gardens were fabulous. Loved them. What did I love more? Warning: nerd alert. I actually touched the Hogarth Press (that's the press that Virginia Woolf printed her first novels on).

Now on to the gardens. 

A quiet place to sit.

The view from the tower.

The herb garden, featuring a stone bowl Vita Sackville-West and Harold Nicolson got while living in Constantinople. (I told mom that it is now an Istanbowl. Couldn't resist.)

See the bee?

The purple border. And that's it. No more photos lest I want to become the irritating vacation photo person.


  1. But these are so good they leave us wanting more! (especially the purple ones, ha ha!)

  2. With pictures like these, there could never be enough. But, I'll leave you be. I am content to visit them over and over again for a long while. Loved all the photos! Thanks for sharing. - Tanya
