This is a continuation of my photo-story about visiting Sissinghurst Garden in May 2014.
The pictures here are mostly of the Front Courtyard, the Tower Lawn and the Rose Garden, presented in no particular order. Since there are about 100 pictures in this batch, and the pictures are large, I need to break it into two separate parts.
Along one of the front courtyard walls, the purple border is planted.

Despite the name, the Rose Garden hosts not only roses, but many perennials and bulbs (allium, salvia, clematis, dianthus, alchemilla mollis, iris, lavender, nepeta, etc).

The great reading about Sissinghurst roses, past and current, is here: Finding Vita's Lost Roses, Roses are Blooming. Part 1, Roses are Blooming. Part 2 .
Here is the link to an interesting article in The Telegraph about growing roses in Sissinghurst.
