      Window boxes of Geraniums outside lounge window, back of house West facing. Window ledges tend to be on the outside here because of the heat but this window is not the original so it has a ledge both sides ...

              My Rhipsalis baccifera which lives in The jungle Room facing East looks like it may be sending out flower stems. This plant is very new to me ...
