Romantic castle and garden at springtime.
Sissinghurst Castle was the backdrop for a diverse history; from the astonishing time as a prison in the 1700s, to being a home to the women’s land army. It was also a family home to some fascinating people who lived here or came to stay. Today you can take in the ruined architecture of the extensive original buildings, vast panoramic views from the top of the Tower, the current working farm and the 450-acre wider estate along with Vita and Harold's gardens.
Vita Sackville-West, the poet and writer, began the transforming Sissinghurst Castle in the 1930s with her diplomat and author husband, Harold Nicolson. Harold's architectural planning of the garden rooms, and the colourful, abundant planting in the gardens by Vita, reflect the romance and intimacy of her poems and writings.

Un bon cliché de ce château austère à l'architecture intéressante. Une bonne idée d'avoir ajouté les fleurs en 1er plan.
Amitiés et bonne journée.

A beautifully composed shot, great low POV taking in the flowers to give height and depth. Lovely detail in the building.

la tua inquadratura, con i fiori ben in vista, addolciscono l'austerità di questo castello.
Il pov scelto ne esalta lo slancio verso il cielo, aggiungendo fascino all'architettura.

This strange castle looks indeed more like a prison than a family home, despite the beautiful gardens. Well framed and pleasing composition with the blue flowers in the foreground, the middle section taken by the meticulously groomed lawn and the castle against the beautiful sky.
have a great day
