Sissinghurst Again; and Good-Bye, UK

We had a hunch that the gardens might be worth a look again at Sissinghurst--our first real stop in June and our last now in August. Only Canterbury and its wonderful aire de camping and then Dover lay between us and our departure from the UK September 3. After Sissinghurst, our last days in the UK were spent resting, reorganizing, returning, repairing, provisioning, and generally enjoying pretty Canterbury.

The head gardener's notes informed us that
spring/summer work was shifting to autumn/
next year work




















Indeed














But the autumn color was coming in well














And there was still much to enjoy














Thus


















Thus














And thus














And other things to look at too: the "HN"
pitchfork and the "VSW" spade, for example



















Fascinating place


















Farewell, UK, it's been great, and we'll be back!
