Yesterday I knocked up another year on my clock. Usually that's something I try to gloss over without any fuss or bother and this year I had been hoping for more of the same.
My lovely better half had already given me a completely gorgeous little pup and I was more than happy with that. However two wonderful friends decided to take me on a little trip to kent.
We visited Sissinghurst Castle & Gardens home of Poet and writer, Vita Sackville-West and husband, Harold Nicolson. Together they transformed the land at Sissinghurst Castle in the 1930s. Harold's architectural planning of the garden rooms, and the vibrant planting by Vita, reflect the romance and intimacy of her poems and writings.
Sissinghurst is visited primarily for it's gardens, notably the Cottage and Medieval Walled gardens but most famously the White Garden. A calming, quiet triumph of form and texture.
