Sissinghurst Castle Gardens at its summer best

Sissinghurst Castle Gardens in Kent looking very much its summer best. The orchard, the gateway to the White Garden also the cottage garden and the hazel grove. The garden is the creation of author Vita Sackville-West and Harold Nicholson to a layout designed by their friend Edmund Lutyens, is now open to the public and cared for by the National Trust.
Well worth even braving the south London traffic and also on this trip, we endured the traffic queues resulting from “Operation Stack M20”, the temporary lorry park on the M20 motorway due to the strikes at Calais.
