help needed to identify this snake and possible solution?

The fact that it's eye covering has misted over indicates that it's about to shed it's skin.  It may well move on after that has happened.

Strange plant...?

Yes, one of the broomrapes.

In a previous garden we hade Orabanche minor appear on a bank of white clover - fascinating

Hello folks   Back from a lovely wander around Peter Beales' Classic Roses with Topbird and BL  - gorgeous blooms (if a bit rain damaged).  The perfume in the air was wonderful and it was good to do something positive today.

One of the willowherbs - considered a weed in most gardens.

Seed potato tubers are expensive because it takes work and time to produce them - there is not cheap and easy short cut.

I'm back - I took your photo with me, but although there were several that were nearly right, nothing seemed quite the right match.

Why not contact Peter Beales' Classic Roses with a copy of your photo and see what they say?

Topbird - couldn't put it better myself 

But to deal with even more immediate issues - the forecast is fine for our rose viewing - and I will get the bedlinen on the line in a few minutes

Looks like pensions will be taking a huge hit - less pocket money for plants
