21 Jan 2011 (I either had this for a present or bought it with birthday Amazon vouchers)

A wonderful feast of a book, goiong through the history of Vita Sackville-West's beloved Sissinghurst and the plans her grandson has for it as he comes of age and embraces the partnership that it offers (this is the book accompanying a TV series that was shown last year; there's so much more satisfying detail in the book!). Some truly exquisite, and never less than lovely, writing and descriptions make this a book to be treasured and re-read – and it even makes me proud to be from the Weald of Kent!
