I'm so enjoying this as a follow-up to yesterday's visit and, as Caroline Zoob lived at Monk's House for over 10 years as a tenant, it's full of quirky details that no-one else would know. Like the bathtub standing at a slant so the water is higher on the right: TS Eliot noticed this when he visited ... can you imagine lowering yourself into that bathtub and thinking of all the literary bottoms that had been there before you! I don't think I'd fancy it before I'd given it a scrub with some old-fashioned Vim.
This morning I belatedly realised that Non at The Dahlia Papers has also visited Charleston and Monk's House quite recently and her two lovely posts here and here capture both gardens exactly.
