Images of Ascott House Gardens and Sissinghurst Gardens, England, UK

Last week I took an overnight coach trip with my local gardening group to visit two National Trust gardens. They were very different in style. Ascott House gardens are meticulously manicured whereas Sissinghurst gardens are a series of 'rooms' laid out in cottage garden style. Although there had been torrential rain during the previous days, the gardens didn't appear to have suffered. I have collected some of my pics into two slide shows. See which you prefer -
