My recent post (Gardens Worth Visiting: Sissinghurst) about my experience of visiting Sissinghurst generated quite a few responses from those who had their own strongly felt relationships with this famous garden. For some, the experience was of their own visit(s); for others, the relationship was to a Sissinghurst that lived in their imaginations. Over and over, the word “iconic” was used to describe this garden.
Given this strong response, I want to invite other garden bloggers to post about their own experiences of or relationships with Sissinghurst. You might, for example, post about your experience visiting Sissinghurst, or your thoughts about what makes Sissinghurst an iconic garden, or about how Sissinghurst has influenced your own garden. Or you might share your favorite images of Sissinghurst. However you choose to approach this, I’d love to hear about the ways that Sissinghurst has been a presence in your own life as a gardener.
When you post, leave a comment here (preferably including a link to your post), and I’ll create a list of posts with links.
Thanks to Jack at Sequoia Gardens for inspiring this invitation.
