Sissinghurst Pictures: Moat Walk, Azalea Bank and the Moat. Part 5

 This part of Sissinghurst Garden was one of the most exciting for me. Looking at the pictures, you can see that I  returned to this place several times and saw it under the clouds and under the sun, with volunteers working and absolutely empty.
The long view from both ends of the Walk, framed with white wisteria from one side and yellow and orange azaleas from another, took my breath away.

Part of the Moat Walk and Azalea Bank seen from the top of the Tower:

Wisteria sinensis  'Alba' and Azalea 'Luteum'

 It's easy to see why Erysimum is called Wall Flower. 

Here is a short article about  the bluebells in the Sissinghurst blog

 The Moat Walk leads to a pond
which is a remnant of the Moat.

The following part of the Moat is close to the White Garden.

Next part will include pictures of the Nuttery.

  1. How lucky to be there when there were so few other visitors! Who are these volunteers and how do we get them to come and work in our gardens? :)

    1. Peter, I tried to be very opportunistic and, when I saw some part of the garden without visitors, I ran there pretty fast!

  2. I enjoy seeing all the bright oranges and yellows in this garden in the spring. I'm also enjoying this series very much and looking forward to your next set of photos.

    1. Thank you Shirley! I'm happy to share these pictures with you!

  3. The quintessence of spring! Beautiful.

    1. Grace, I didn't have a clear plan what to visit while in London for a couple of days. I am SO glad I finally decided to go to Sissinghurst!

    Tatyana, I have SO enjoyed your tour of Sissinghurst. Your photography is always of a high standard and your eye for detail and composition (despite what you say about avoiding other visitors!) is faultless. You have made me realise again how important an inspiration Sissinghurst was in my gardening life, but also how impossible it is for me to garden to such a high standard. So a bit of a bittersweet joy it has been... :) Thank you so much! Jack

    1. Dear Jack, thank you so much for your kind words that I take close to my heart! I am sure your own garden is an inspiration for visitors and readers of your blog! It has its own unique character and it is beautiful, trust me!

  5. I know my jaw has dropped. LOL! How beautiful! Now I will have to go back and catch up on the other posts to see all the beautiful gardens and flowers.

    1. Thank you Lona! I hope you enjoy the pictures!


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