Our first breakfast. We ate from the buffet until full, and then they brought out the breakfast menu!

We're off in our couch with our driver Polly. Polly is a wealth of knowledge about the history of England and best of all....a great driver! Our hotel, Newick Park, is behind us.

The pond at Bateman's. Rudyard Kipling's home from 1902 to 1936.

The girls on the bridge leading to the old mill at Bateman's.

We arrive at the White Garden at Sissinghurst. The girls are 'snap' happy. We all had a wonderful lunch and are eager to walk it off in the garden.

Mid June is the height of the rose season and Sissinghurst is blooming in every color rose imaginable .

The famous twin towers at Sissingurst. Vita Sackville West's writing studio and apartment; one of the most visited and copied gardens in the world. Viewed from the Hot Garden. Look for us tomorrow!
