There is a house empty in that row, David, and it was a beautiful sunny day when we were there. The Gunnera is actually across the track from the houses so all can enjoy it - especially those of us on the canal!
Thanks, OL. I have to confess that the sunset photo was actually taken by another crew member, as my (new) camera had packed up by then, but I thought it was so good I had to include it. (I do have her permission!)
Just been out for a walk with my new new camera so will post a few more pics when I've downloaded them.
