A writer's home


We're on our travels in the van again and have been to some fabulous places. Here's one with a literary connection. It's Sissinghurt Castle, formerly the home of Vita Sackville west and Harold Nicholson, both of whom were writers. In the tower is the physical Hogarth Press which Virginia Wolf used to start her publishing company and later gave to Vita.

 Admittedly I went mostly for the flowers, but that's not the point. (For more of them see here)



It hasn't all been sightseeing. I've been writing too - honestly I have.

Sissinghurst is on my list. I believe that the garden is a-mazing. You'd be proud of me today. I weeded and tidied up two flower beds full of nettles, bindweed and grass.

Sometime I read a Sackville West story. Don't remember what it was about, but the author's name was memorable. More great photos!

Lovely pics! Now are you sure you didn't declare that you've been writing when your fingers were crossed?

Lovely pictures, Patsy. And the homes of well-known writers from so long ago are always fascinating.:-)

Well done, Rosemary!

It's beautiful, Hilary.

I'm not sure I've read anything of hers except gardening stuff, Oscar. I should!

Patsy said...

I really, really have been working, Susan!

Patsy said...

I do like to see where people worked, Carol.
