The gardens of England

I'm developing a series of information sites related to the English gardens I visit from time to time with my sketchbook. As regular readers will know I like to provide information about the places I visit so that others can find out more about it if they want to and also to visit - either on a virtual basis or in reality.

Consequently, I usually end each blog post with a set of links related to the place I visit. In future, what I'm hoping to have is one link to the garden website and one link to my information website for that garden.

I've started with two of my favourite gardens - Sissinghurst and Great Dixter.
Each site will all the relevant blog posts from Travels with a Sketchbook and some of the sketches in the sites I create.

At the moment I've got both sites off the ground but I need to develop them so if you;re interested, I'd suggest that you also check back at a later date to see how they're doing.
  • The main area of development are modules devoted to each 'room' within each garden. I've got some done but need to do more.
  • I'll also be adding in a note for artists - about what they're like for sketching and a plan of the places I've sat to sketch - which you will see on this blog first.
I'd be delighted to receive suggestions from readers about relevant content.

I know that a lot of my readers also like gardening so I hope you enjoy the pictures, the information and the gardening books - and the blog posts about the garden by gardening bloggers!

  1. Love what you're doing! If you're ever in Kent, would love to see Winston Churchill's estate, Chartwell.
