‘In an English country garden….’ a day at Bressingham Gardens

A few weeks ago I headed home to Norfolk to visit my parents, and my sister who is on summer break from university. My parents have moved there recently and this was only my third visit and third time to explore the area! 

The weather has been (until recently) great in the UK so we decided to go to Bressingham Gardens for the day to enjoy the warm weather.

The gardens a join to Bressingham Hall, and were established by Alan Bloom after he moved there in 1946 – a quite a good job he did too.

I was overwhelmed with the vast display of flowers and other planting – according to their website there are over 8000 species and cultivars of perennials, grasses, shrubs, trees, conifers, ferns and bulbs. Wowsers. I don’t really have a particular interest in plants, but do in the design and landscaping so enjoy going to botanical gardens and such.

Naturally I took the opportunity to get my Lumix GF5 out and take some snaps. Hope you enjoy…
