Update: It seems I was a day off!!!! I thought I was writing and posting this on a Thursday evening….Well, it seems I must still be subject to jet lag, as I was day early. Ah well, you all seem to be enjoying it, no matter!
The Dahlias in England are spectacular!
I wasn’t prepared for just how prolific, healthy, lush, colorful and ubiquitous they would be in September. Some of these photos were taken at Sissinghurst Gardens and others at my friend Julie’s gardens in Suffolk.
I’m going to tell you the story of both these visits…. next week.
Sissinghurst was all I had hoped and wished for, and more. We got out of the taxi, paid our entrance fee, and the rest of the day was almost dream-like. The grounds are extensive, but just enough to do in a day and really see and feel all that there is. The skies were gray but then the sun would peak through and the temperature was in the mid 70’s: P E R F E C T I O N.
Later in the week I took the train up to Julie’s house. We had never met but became friends through our blogs and the BYW course we both had taken. Now, wasn’t that generous of her to have me to stay for two nights, sight unseen? Yes, I think so! It was a whirlwind time and I am still savoring every minute and word and sight. More about that next week!
Take a look and be jealous!!
I’m still in the process of organizing both my pictures and my notes. There is just so much to show.
I’ll be back with more next week….
