I can't see clearly as they are in a dark corner, but I think there are 3 or 4.

Philippa, I think we need Rosie to tell us about that as she uses facebook.

Good grief The bird feeders all hang from a pear tree in the centre of my tiny lawn; there are finches of all kinds (except bullfinches), and great and blue tits, sparrows etc. Will the snake try to get at them?

Ahhh! thanks Dove; but Robins are way down the garden beyond the g/h. The bird feeders are very close to where the snake went; would they eat dropped bird seed? The birds who feed on the ground are mainly big wood pigeons, too big for a snake to tackle I would think.

Kate, I think all your ideas are lovely; except replacing the gravel with paving. Apparently, because water can't drain away so well it is a contributary factor in localised flooding.

About the flowers, what colours are you looking for?

I have the Rose Compassion over my porch; will try to post a photo later - it is spectacular and depending where you are in the uk, can keep flowering up to December.

In the Fens, Norfolk. I saw a much smaller one vanish into the same part of the flower bed about 5 years ago; perhaps the holes I sometimes see in the ground are not rat holes, but snake holes.
