To end (if you're still with me) I wanted to add a little note about the Tropical Garden which is where the old rose garden used to be. I've never really been impressed by this part of the garden as it always looks a little lack luster in May / June. Clare, who owns to the windmill we stayed in said it was her favourite part of the garden but I wasn't convinced. Until I went and my heart melted. The colours were overwhelming and everything was HUGE. When I went in they were also watering so everything was dripping with water making me feel I was in a jungle rather than East Sussex!
Phew, blimey a lot of pictures - sorry about that but I hope you enjoyed them!
