Good Q!

Since then we've had about 4 bad winters out of a possible 7, and Birmingham (where Little Indoenesia is), being so central with little maritime influence can get some real deep lows. My sis in law lives in Selly Oak and she endured -15C in 2010.

So some of the less hardy stuff has surely gone to the great allotment in the sky. Cordylines must have been cut down to the ground.

If you go to street view, the image presented is 2014 and there's a "sold" sign on the property. I'd hazard a guess that plants and people have relocated

The house third from right to house marked a -yes? That one is left handed and has brown double glazing like the photos.

I can't tell for sure because google maps in never 100% accurate. It should be no 20 but cant read the street signs on streetview. In any case none of the garden have any tropical plants in them so they must have moved as the Sold sign suggests,

I had a look online and the last house to sell was No25 (in 2012), not No 20. I think the garden may still be there looking at bing (2012 map over 2007 for much of google Earth)

It is still there. I originally thought it was the house with the "A" on it , as per Kris' pic. Had another look and its number 20. Looks very untidy from the front or am i being overly picky ? ..................
