Rather than all the interesting planting in the numerous themed 'rooms' at Sissinghurst, it was the tubs and planters which inspired me the most.
Some were beautiful in their own right or had been combined with just the right plants or were simply positioned in just the right place or a combination of all three. Unfortunately, I only managed to take hasty snaps, just good enough to keep as reminders and inspiration for my own garden.
My little girl's priority, however, was to find the next beautifully manicured lawn so that she could practice her forward rolls! Next time, I'll go alone!
