Visit to Bressingham Gardens

Well, I'm back. Trouble on A1 caused delay to getting back. I had a walk on my own around the dell garden, the last person left in the garden. Very large snake by the pond in the dell garden. I just saw the tail end slithering into the shrubberry.

The camera was playing up, I thought it was broken .OH fixed it. He gave it a sharp bang.

What's killing my Chilean glory vine?

Mine flowered from March. It has set a lot of seed and now  has gone brown. I'd cut it down and give it a drink. I planted it expecting it to be killed by the first frost, but it has lasted three years. I will set some more seed next year.
