"Staycation"

Staycation for us is staying at home during the relaxation of the Covid-19 lockdown relaxation and going out to places for day trips. To others it looks like it means getting in your car and driving 300 miles to park on the side of the road and then joining thousands of others in close proximity rather than social distancing!!

Today we pre-booked to go to Sissinghurst as it has recently opened for limited numbers. Of course, the day we chose was one of the only weekends in July when it rained.

As it was raining, we left Reggie at home. Another reason is that dogs aren't allowed in the gardens but are on the rest of the estate. Our plan was to go and see the new Mediterranean garden that had been made in a Greek style. This is due to the original garden developers, Vita Sackville-West and her husband, loving the Greek islands.

Even through the rain the garden looks good, the influences plain to see.

To dry off we stopped in the coffee shop and had a coffee and cake before venturing to the shop and then back through the drizzle to the car for the damp drive home.

Even in the rain the gardens are still worth a visit.
