Sissinghurst, Kent, 1st June 2016

The famous Vita Sackville-West and Harold Nicolson's Sissinghurst gardens were cold for the first day of June, a pity as it is a place to relax and enjoy the scents of very early summer.

The White Garden was super cool on a bleak day.
The azaleas led up to a sumptuous white wisteria.
Red poppies. Just the tonic on a cold day. Have I mentioned the cold?
Three iris varieties, two being bearded. I've no idea of their names.
Clematis 'Asao' 
Papaver 'Fire Ball'
Rosa-spinosissima-William-III
Clematis 'Mrs Cholmondeley'

  1. Well at least it doesn't appear to have been crowded?
    An amazing garden and an amazing look into a time which I can in no way relate to. I'm thrilled when I actually get the lawn mowed, edging and weedlessness are only just dreams!

  2. It was so cold that most people were in the cafe!
