I had to google 'backdoor shoes' and discovered I have some; £4.00 from Wilkinsons. Very useful and so comfy I even wear them in the house sometimes. My neighbour got some that are lined with fluffy stuff and I'm a bit jealous

 Splendid Salvias.

 This Hibiscus had an interesting interior with precise 'vents'.
