Foggy Bottom


If you enjoyed the recent trip to Bressingham Gardens and Steam Museum then you'll be pleased to learn that there's another part to the garden which you've yet to visit. It's a bit tucked-away and difficult to find but well worth the effort. It was Dad's favourite area; he loved all the trees and the different shades of green. Although it's still beautiful I was disappointed to see, on my last visit, that a lot of the trees have been cleared. Never mind, by the wonders of digital technology I can show you what Foggy Bottom, for that's its unlikely name, looked like when Dad loved it so.










The garden was the creation of Adrian Bloom, one of the founder's sons. If you manage a visit then you'll find very few people around - they don't seem to wander far from the tea-shop!

Take care.

  1. Very nice, John. In the U.S., Foggy Bottom is the area west of the White House which is home to many government buildings, most notably the State Department. It was also the name of a fine, D.C.-based, bluegrass band of the '70s.

  2. Wonderful name - sounds like it could be something that afflicts humans! It's incredible how many colours there are in foliage, never mind in flowers and blossom too.

    Oh no - you'll never believe the WV - it's 'phooff'... which is quite clearly something that happens when you're suffering from foggy bottom!!

  6. I can see why your dad liked this area! Foggy Bottom is a delightful name and for sure would get me to venture beyond the tea shop. :)
