  1. Brick. Walkways, buildings. Hedges.
    Love them all !!!

  2. All those brick walls. Especially that semicircular one. And the moss. Great photos, well done. Thanks so much for sharing them.

    1. Alison, thank you! With that moss, I felt myself at home there!

  3. Next best thing to being there. Thank you.

  4. Piękny i zadbany ogród. Zapachniało mi też bzem. Pozdrawiam.
    A beautiful and well-kept garden. I also smelled of lilacs. Yours.

  5. Lovely! Your posts are the next best thing to being there myself. Those clouds look pretty ominous--hope you didn't get drenched!

  6. Lovely shots of Sissinghurst- one of my favourite gardens. I am going there next month. It looks as if it was a wet day, I like the rain soaked shots they are so atmospheric. Your Penstemon Alice Hindley is actually Hesperis matronalis or Sweet Rocket which has a beautiful fragrance, specially in the evenings.
    A lovely post I am just off to look at the rest of your blog.

    1. chloris, I am jealous - I would love to see this garden in June! Actually, in July, August, September too! Please, take a lot of pictures!
      I appreciate you noticing my wrong label! It looks like I skipped the picture of the P. green growth. I corrected it. It will bloom probably in July. Have a wonderful trip to Sissinghurst!

  7. This is why I love watching British mysteries......get to see all those gorgeous gardens! Lovely pictures. Happy to see they also like foxtail lilies.


Thank you for stopping by and for your comment! I appreciate your time! See you soon on your blog!
