On a Summer day are you drawn to gardens and places where you can stroll or sit, stare or daydream? Would you journey to Europe to visit incredible garden places? Maybe you would like to stay at home in your own garden, but for a few moments, come along to an incredible place….Come with me to visit to a favorite garden, one I could never tire of and if I could fly there this very afternoon, I would. Come along…
Play this song, if you like.
Let’s wander to….. Sissinghurst,
where the spirits of Vita Sackville-West and husband Harold still abide and their gardens surrounding Sissinghurst Castle remain true.
The famous Lutyens bench beckons, in all seasons.
Sit for a moment, or pick up a tool and dig into the hallowed ground where these famous authors/gardeners perfected an art.! Sissinghurst is written about all the time, by every sort of author, but you’ll want to see it for yourself.
Each wall borders a path that leads you to another enchanted place. One garden room opens to another. Sissinghurst is an ocean away, and feels a century removed.
But imagine you are there, walking in the sun and between the shadows.
Imagine summer in a garden,
this special garden….Sissinghurst.
I wrote this post to join in with Anita at Castles, Crowns and Cottages; she is hosting a most spectacular journey of the imagination. Anita is a favorite blogger, poet and philosopher. If you have a moment, drop by and she will point the way to some fascinating journeys with her fellow bloggers! I will return to Savannah after this brief wander of the imagination through a British garden. Back to the watery splendor of this coastal city and her magnificent skies!
