Our Favourite Summer Blog PostsNext Post
We hope you’ve been having a nice summer and have been getting out a bit more than maybe you could in 2020.
Because we’ve been busy (happily so!) welcoming visitors back to our gardens and museum we haven’t had time to do too much blog writing so join us in looking back over some previous summer related posts from yester-year!
Our gardens don’t end up looking fantastic in summer by accident - they are lovingly tended and maintained by our team of gardeners all year round.
Back in 2016 we spoke to our head gardener Jaime Blake the trials and tribulations of getting the gardens prepared for the thousands of summer visitors we receive!
In this post from the previous year, 2015, we hear from Jaime again - this time he shares his favourite gardens to visit in Norfolk when we haven’t got him chained to a lawn mower.
His list features amazing gardens dotted all over the county and we discover whether Jaime likes his gardens formal or informal.
Also in 2015 we were lucky enough to be sent a write up of one Simnett family’s visit to Bressingham accompanied by delightful pictures of their trip.
The Simnett family braved the 1 hour plus journey from their home in Aylsham to spend the day with us (a daunting prospect considering they had a 3 year old and a 9 year old in tow!)
“Louie thought it was great he could climb up and explore many of the trains and carriages.. the children were simply amazed when we told them how old some of the trains were!”
Ever the realists, we realise that not every summer is an endless sun drenched season of punting, hammocks and picnics - so for our cardboard inclined readers we researched a great range of boardgames.
To keep it on-brand we selected train and garden related games to be enjoyed in the event of soggy summer days!
Is there anything we should’ve mentioned?
