Snake in the pond!
Went Great Dixter today a house, garden and nursery near Bodium Castle East Sussex.
The smells in the walled garden were so fragrant. Couldn’t resist buying several phlox and verbena bonariensis. I loved their verbascum olympicum even after the flowers are past their best its still lovely but they did not have any of them for sale.
Unfortunately I chose a day when they were cutting the meadows so it was a bit noisy in places and I have been sneezing since.
We had a very large grass snake in the pond it stayed a few days and then went when it got cooler/wetter. I stupidly tried to hook it out with a net – that’s when I found out how big it was as it wiggled back into the pond. I still have all my fish but who knows what it got up to. I am now making sure I stomp loudly around the garden incase its still around.
