Sissinghurst Castle Garden in the Weald of Kent in England, was created by Vita Sackville-West, poet and writer, and her husband Harold Nicolson, author and diplomat. It is among the most famous gardens in England and is designated Grade I on Historic England’s register of historic parks and gardens.  The castle tower dating from the 16th century is virtually all that remains of the grand Manor House.

    What a wonderful garden, Keith. And a magnificent building. I’d love to get through the railing into the library! Great photos.

    Wow! That is just gorgeous. Quite an insight for me (over here in Australia). That’s stunning.

    As my traveling days are at a long standstill, Keith, I greatly appreciate your sharing these colorful photos. The flowers are delightful framed with such stunning green lawns.

      Not being able to travel abroad right now I’m making the most of what surrounds me. Thanks for your kind words, Gail.

      Thanks so much. Being stuck here unable to fly away for almost 2 years I’m beginning to wonder why I never took much notice of my own country!

    Fascinating castle and gardens. I was particularly intrigued by the gate tower, it’s so “thin” – and then surrounded by lush vegetation.

      It was originally part of a larger building, it certainly does look a little unusual now! Thanks for dropping by.

    Such a lovely place. I love seeing pictures of England. My mom was from there. Grew up somewhere in Kent.

      Kent is a beautiful county and next door to Sussex where I took these photos! I’m pleased you enjoyed them, Karen.

    Thought I left a comment, because I loved this garden with all these flowers, seemingly planted plan. But I had a chaotic battle with a lost password that day. My excuse for the day:):) Emille (former: Jesh)
