 I saw that too Iamweedy ... in the village where I used to live the church had some high sided pews for the gentry, facilitating the use of such utensils without the loss of dignity ... not really sure where they were emptied, but I suppose one had a Ladies' Maid to see to such things

I've been pondering over this while I cleaned the bathroom ........ could it just have been nipped by frost/cold wind ...... I know they're hardy but new foliage of any plant can be a bit susceptible to the cold, and the ones I've seen do go brown in the winter ... and that end of the patch might just have caught a very chilly wind nipping across the East Anglian flatlands direct from the Urals.


Just a thought
