Sissinghurst Castle, a jolly out for the day

“What Happiness you and I have derived from that garden – I mean real satisfaction and a feeling of success. It is an achievement – assuredly it is. And it is pleasant to feel that we have created a work of art. It is all your credit really. Mine was just rulers and bits of paper”
Harold to Vita

 Here’s a flash back to a day out we had to Sissinghurst castle last September that I never quite got around to posting here. Sissinghurst is a magical place to visit with its fairytale tower and gardens. The quote above is from a plaque you find at the top of the tower as you enjoy the view of the estate and Vita & Harold’s creation, which bought a smile to my face. Reminiscent of my partner and I’s relationship dynamic down our own allotment.

Here’s a few photos from our day out in the beautiful Kent countryside. We will definitely be visiting Sissinghurst again soon that’s for sure.

For me it’s all about the simple things in life. Pottering around my allotment, growing things indoors and out, baking a good cake, being outside, pretty things, vintage finds and a good pot of tea. It’s all the small things that make me tick, noticing the beauty in everyday things. Although this blog initially was intended to be a blog about all these things its evolved into being basically a blog about our allotment. Our adventures, highs and lows, wins and loses. So join me & Mr Wilson as we learn from our mistakes and successes down plot 18a.

  1. I’ve never been but it’s one of the gardens on my ‘bucket list’. Your photos show a little slice of heaven, looks like late summer is a good time to go. It would be nice to visit when there are fewer visitors about and really soak up the personal history!
