    Beautiful pictures Yvie,  thanks image I love the purples in the first garden! Looks like everything has had great growing weather as it all looks so lush and green! The castle is stunning as a structure but I prefer the less formal garden of the other two. Glad you had a lovely time, thanks for sharing! image

     Beautiful Yvie. That white wisteria is superb.  The antirrhinums at Great Dixter are like soldiers standing to attention.

    I love them all apart from the anthirrhinums.

    Glad you enjoyed the photos.  I had an amazing few days and would recommend all three gardens. I know we shouldn't advertise but I can also recommend the place I stayed if anyone is thinking of going.  A very small B&B called Chandlers in Battle.  They only have 3 rooms and it is extremely handy for all three gardens and very reasonable.
