Sissinghurst Castle Gardens
Sissinghurst garden was created by Vita Sackville-West. It is beautiful. You can read about it here, Vita here. The colours are mouth-watering, the sun came out and brought with it a
juggling lady on the lawn, honey bees and the colours of the plants. I bought a little book of gardening columns by V S-W. I love them-she wrote in a funny, warm, wise and inspiring way. In one article, she talks about a tussie-mussie that her neighbour bought her from her own small garden. A tussie-mussie is the delightful term for a posy of flowers. My sweet peas have passed their best so I am going into my garden tomorrow to get a tussie-mussie of my own!
P.S.-I did the pictures small as there are so many. In the draft version they are all in blocks. When I publish they get into one long line! They seem to be working when you click on them though so if you want a closer look!
