The Garden At Sissinghurst

The garden – said to be the largest enclosed garden in England or somewhere – Tamara read it in a guide and wondered whether it is really true. Having walked around the garden it doesn’t seem like it is the biggest. It is pretty, though, with plants and low hedges, and a stream with overhanging trees. And wisteria growing against this lovely old brick wall.

The room at the top of the top of the towers was where Vita Sackville-West sat to write at Sissinghurst. Not somewhere to find you have left your pen or papers in the garden below. I forget how many steps to climb to get to the top.
