Sissinghurst Cottage Garden Pictures. (Part 4)

Before looking at the Cottage Garden, 
let's climb the Tower and look at it from above.

It was a bit of surprise to see yellow, orange and red colors in the garden in May.
Among the plants blooming in this garden through the season are: Columbines, Euphorbia polichroma, Rosa xanthina 'Canary Bird', Siberian iris, Oriental poppies, Meconopsis cambrica, Verbascum, African daisy, Feverfew with golden leaves, Tulips, Wallflower, 
 Yarrow, Sunflowers, etc.

The copper urn is surrounded by four gigantic yews.

 The South Cottage was the first building that became habitable after the purchase of the estate by Vita Sackville-West and Harold Nicholson.
 Included in the Cottage were Vita's bedroom and Harold's work-rooms.
The Cottage Garden was the first garden to be planted at Sissinghurst.
The white rose climbing the wall is 'Madame Alfread Carriere' planted on May 6th 1930 when Vita and Harold bought the place. 

Next post will include pictures of the Moat Walk and Azalea Bank.
I hope you are not tired yet, because there are many more pictures to come!

    1. Kit, I am so happy that you like the pictures!!!

  2. I love all the touches of bright orange in the cottage garden, and the rainy pictures from above. Good thing it was dry and sunny when you were actually down there.

    1. Alison, thanks! The weather made me go back and forth since I wanted to see all the garden rooms when they were dark and light!

  3. My favorite colors! Tatyana, thank you SO MUCH! I am inspired!

  4. Another gorgeous post! I especially like the drama of the heavy rain pictures. You capture moods so well with your camera that it almost feels like we were there with you!
