Sissinghurst plants

There were just so many outstanding specimens on display; I’ve had a jolly hard time of it trying to select a handful for the old blog. Nevertheless, here they are, but please bear in mind this is just the tip of the iceberg!

I love Sissinghurst, especially at this time of year. The aquilegias in the hot garden are amazing, I wonder if they were flowering this week. But like you I would have to put Hidcote at the top of the garden tree. Lucky you to work there, I think I'd do it for free!

Your photography is wonderful.

Love the picture of the bee on the Coronilla and the 'Knap HIll Scarlet' looks beautifuyl!

Martin I was just a tad too early for the aquilegias in bloom, which is a shame but I certainly have no grounds to complain!
