I love the autumn, which seems to be ever nearer each morning this week, but I also like to hold on to the last days of summer for as long as I can. The last few days have felt like the tail end.......but, if we are lucky there is still the odd corker of a day to be had. It was such a day on my recent visit to the magnificent Charleston Farmhouse.  

It's a bit like Marmite - you either love it or hate it. I love it. It is actually perfect in every way, but I'll try and not be too gushing - just enjoy the photo's. None allowed from inside the house I am afraid, so you will have to make do with the garden. It was the country home of Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant and not a million miles away from the Ravilious Greenhouse. There is so much to see in this part of Sussex. The country church of Berwick which has strong links to Grant and Bell is nearby and this did actually leave me lost for words......more of that another day maybe.

A fine place indeed. Loved the gardens, pond full of carp too! The whole place had an air of calm. Cheers, Dickie
