Derek Jarmin's Garden

Late in the day, we find Derek Jarmen's house and garden.  Dungeness, a headland on the coast of Kent, England, is a stark place after visiting The Great Dixter Garden. Made up of a shingle beach, there are no trees and little to see although there are many unique flora and fauna here. One we noticed and loved was the sea kale.  Beautiful sea green color and eatable too.

Odd structures here. Lots of shacks, abandoned boats and isolated chimneys along with shipping containers and a couple nuclear power stations.
