This morning I went to Sissinghurst Gardens, they were magnificent. Sissinghurst was originally a Castle but all that's left now is the original entrance way and a tower in the middle from which you can survey the lovely gardens and surrounding countryside. The gardens are well set out in various sections, colour, types of plants etc. The only one not to be a marvellous show was the spring one, which had finished by now.

After lunch I drove down to Winchelsea Beach on the south coast, to visit some more relatives of my father. Joan and Sheila live in a neat little cottage on a road down towards the Beach, a nice quiet area by the look of it.
