Amazing specimen, Amy. Very exotic too. With your sun hat and shades, it’s looking warm and sunny there! Hope your husband is doing ok?

wow that's pretty!...and the bushes look nice too! :) Hi Amy! I love your new house - the roof especially. The Melianthus major makes quite a statement. Those flowers would look great in an arrangement. Is that a tropical plant?

It is a triffid Sue ,Thanks 3p , I'm incognito Sandra hoping you wouldn't recognise me Haha , it was hot that day Kate ,Paul the flowers will grow a bit taller and then will attract hundreds of bees its a sight to see , it originally comes from Africa every part of the plant is poisonous , I'm glad you like my new home we're quite settled and glad we moved especially now in these strange times ... Thanks Linda I'm glad you like it ....

Thanks Karen ,it must love the spot its in ,I took a cutting from its base which is growing well , I could soon have another giant competing with it :o)

Oh my word, it’s gigantic, I pruned ours, so hopefully it won’t grow as large as that, I don’t think Andrews grows that tall?...we certainly haven’t the room for one that enormous....we have one giant already...can’t have two!!

Goodness Amy, what a giant and how exciting that you've grown it! Such beautiful leaves too and good to see you there in front of your new home...it does look lovely..😊 Xx
