    WHAT'S LOOKING GOOD IN May
    -------------------------------------------------


    Had a walk down the garden to see if the Peach Hibiscus had opened fully but it had not but the Yellow (Columbine) and White are opening ...

    It is not sunny here so pictures not so bright as these three all face South.

                  Thank you @Victoria it was just grass and a large conifer in front of the window, when we moved in about 25 years ago and started with the roses going all around the path, they were a lot cheaper in those days,the conifer went not long after we moved in because it was stopping the light getting in the living room, don't get the sun in that way.

                          There were five paving slabs left over from the path so T'other Half has put them in front of the Jungle Room for the bench ... Schefflera to the left. Beloperone guttata to the right ...

                              That's amazing.
                              I had Saxifraga tumbling waters a long time ago,,which I believe is similar, but it was monocarpic, so that was the end of that.
                              I think yours is perennial though??
