Sissinghurst Castle

Today we paid a visit to beautiful Sissinghurst Castle near Cranbrook.  The Spring Walk was colourful but it was a little bit early for many of the flowers.  Give it another two weeks and it will be a riot of colour.  The daffodils were spectacular.

The lovely Oast house near the entrance

You can climb the stairs to the top of this tower and see wonderful views of the countryside

The Paddock with an abundance of daffodils
The lake
A view across the fields
Primroses everywhere
A carpet of blue spring flowers
It was a beautiful, sunny afternoon which we enjoyed and rounded it off with tea and shortbread in the restaurant by the oast houses.   And of course, I had to visit the shop!

.......til the next time
