Foggy Bottom, Bressingham Gardens


I have been meaning to write this blog since I put the last one on in September about the main gardens in Bressingham.
Now I have forgotten most of what I was intending to write, so the pictures will have to speak for themselves!
We visited Bressingham to see the gardens while they were in full flower and the experience was truly amazing. Having only been before when the perrennials were just peeping above the ground to see them in full bloom (no pun intended) was terrific.
Foggy Bottom is the part of the acreage that was taken over by Adrian Bloom to create his conifer area which also has swathes of perrennials and grasses.

So on to the pictures.

I am so sorry there is no comment on each picture, just means that I should have written the blog sooner. But the lovely views and specimen trees really speak for themselves.

Thanks Stera and Seaburn, wouldn't it be wonderful to just have that much time, money and room to achieve such stunning views? I was really taken with the golden holly, or perhaps it not a holly, but something that looks like one! Just the colours of the conifers and shrubs were stunning - but it was a nice day!
How's the tablet coming on?

It all looks beautifully "organised". I wonder how many gardeners are involved?

More than just the one like me Eirlys! Plodding about weeding is like painting the Forth bridge, they grow behind you. I suppose if you pack it full enough with swathes of big plants you can keep the weeds down, but I like my little plants, like primulas, cyclamen and violets.

Pictures speak volumes; these certainly do. Thanks for letting us immerse ourselves in all that lovely greenery; especially when it's white outside (yes, folks, snow still here in Mid Wales and absolutely freezing). Happy Christmas!

Thanks Hywel and White horse, it seems an age ago now and as for looking at the greenery and flowers they really are a distant memory! What dusting of snow we had has gone now, but we have had some really hard frosts, then rain, so the ground is 'squishy' and Boris has had a few slips!
Happy Christmas to you all too.
