After our trip to Perch Hill we couldn't go home without visiting Sissinghurst as it was so close by. Sissinghurst Castle is world-famous as the home and garden of Vita Sackville-West and Harold Nicolson. We have visited this garden a couple of times before and it never fails to please.
Nerine Bowdenii 'Praecox'
The Michaelmas Daisies were in full bloom throughout the garden.
De Havilland Tiger Moth G-ACDC was flying overhead. It is the oldest flying Tiger Moth in the world.
We climbed the tower,
which houses Vita's study.
There were glimpses of the garden
through the bubbled glass as we climbed.
At the top we enjoyed panoramic views of the garden and countryside.
Back down again and we continued our tour of the garden.
