May 28, Sissinghurst and Great Dixter

Another gorgeous day, although for taking pictures it was a bit too sunny. The first garden today was Sissinghurst, past home of Vita Sackville-West and Harold Nicolson. This garden just gets better with age. I have visited many times and it is always a delight for the eyes and senses. As mentioned earlier, there are many pictures of the garden on previous tours as well for you to enjoy.

Then it was off to Great Dixter, home of Christopher Lloyd. Some of the group saw him out walking his dogs while we were there and were thrilled about it. The front of his home is full of pots full of all kinds of goodies to look at. The garden as usual is jam packed full of plants. He has left his mark and impression on this garden and it will truly be interesting to see what happens to it as time goes by.
