Thankyou Pat. I remember planting that vine (wysteria) about 6 years ago when it was just a twig, its taken over the garden now! We have to get the machetes out every once in a while

Ah yes, the Tripod Plant, very rare and it only grows out of paving slabs. You see it when it flowers!

Thanks for kind comments

You promised garden pictures and you delivered - a man of his word!

I particularly like the gnarled and knotted vines as others have mentioned and the brassy 'fleur de lis'. Must be a portion of a fence or something - hard to tell, but it's not that important - I just like it.

And isn't it winter there too? How could yer mum have green things growing in her garden in January? Maybe she has a green house.

Thanks Jeff. Its actually pretty warm for the time of year in London, chilly nights though. The green vine is evergreen (forgot the name of it). So far its only been raining here, not like Keswick which i go back to on friday.

The 'fleur de lis' is the base of a bird feeder

I suppose 1 great benefit with the VERY rare Tripod plant, you NEVER EVER have to water it.
Only plant that thrives on Nil water.
Love those twisted vine shots. they are great. Wisteria, lovely in flower, but can really take over. and come to weight a ton on a pergola or archway.

Yep. When we planted it all the fencing was brand new (and straight). Its all buckled now and threatening to fall over! It does look amazing in the summer though when all the leaves come back and the flowers are out.

Great series! And I thought I was weather challenged here in Seattle
I've still got a little ABA (accessory buying addiction), can you tell me what the tripod model ie? I don't recognize it, but it looks to be very handy for day tripping.
