England, Kent

I had a wonderful week in England, Kent, maybe one of the best. Now I have lot of fine photos, memories and books, for hole winter... It's difficult to say which garden is the best one. I saw lot of topiary forms, I like the contrast.
Old Buckhurst, different colours, forms for foliage, 500 years old house.
Yew topiary and the Orangery in Belmont.
Great Comp Garden in Kent.
Queen Mother's Garden at Walmer Castle.
Pashley Manor, very charming garden.
Two Sisters Pond, Hever Castle garden.
Famous topiary in Great Dixter.
Grey and White Garden in Penshurst Place.
Lovely kitchen garden in Merriments.
Four Irish yews in Cottage Garden, Sissinghurst Castle Garden.
Wonderful mosaic steps à la Kaffe Fasett in Marle Place.

I had fun viewing your blog. Thanks for sharing your pictures. I have been to Kent and to some of the gardens you visited. My favorite was Sissinghurst! The glorious garden rooms. I would love to see more pictures.

hey hannele, I decided to post some of Sissinghurst pics. Your's brought back such good memories. Funny thing while I was posting, my husband was sitting in Gatwick at the airport, thinking about our trip there together. So the timing was amazing.

Did you find that lovely clematis at Sissinghurst? Clematis 'Alba Luxurians' I googled it, and it is a beautiful plant.

A Woman Who is: often you have a timing, you see things. I bought Clematis 'Alba Luxurians' in Sweden, I love it.
