This is a small but beautiful new discovery for me.
Growing like a golden mat just below the Chinese bridge is this- golden saxifrage or Chrysosplenium oppositifolium. It thrives in damp conditions so it has certainly had the correct growing conditions this year. This little native plant is beautiful glistening in the sunshine and flowers normally between April and June, but like everything else it is a bit early.
