Charleston Gardens

The weather has been so warm lately, it's hard to stay inside when the skies are so blue.  In the south of England we are all enjoying the sunshine.   The beaches are packed and the sea dotted with braves souls who dare to take a swim! My bike rides along the beachfront have been long and frequent.

This post is all about the gardens at Charleston Farmhouse in East Sussex.  A follow up on my previous post.   Hope you enjoy.
























































































































Hope you enjoyed the gardens!
I'm off for a cycle before the wind changes direction!

  1. Ah what I would for a stroll through those gardens. We just don't get enough water to enjoy those kinds of gardens. I do give it my best shot though. Thanks much for the tour.

  2. So very beautiful Sharon! Wish I had been there to join you. It's the sort of garden I love and with an interesting history as well.

    Happy week,

    1. Thank you dear Frances, this peony was just gazing out, all alone, couldn't help but take a photo! How lucky to have been in London at the same time! The atmosphere and excitement must have been incredible! Of course we all watched it from the comfort of our lounge, but to actually have been there must have been quite something! Hugs Sharon xx
