It does look similar to Genista aetnensis aka Mount Etna Broom (one of my favourite trees). 

I don't know Retama sphaerocarpa but if, as Marlorena says it's similar and more common in your area then my guess is that she's right and that's what it is - especially if it can cause allergic reactions.

I've never known the Genista to cause any allergy problems other than hayfever when it's in flower. 

Hope your husband makes a swift recovery.

I'm afraid I can't see the picture. 

You can upload a photo by clicking on the green tree icon on the toolbar above where you type your post and follow the instructions. 

Or you can put the photo on a photo-hosting site and post a link to it 

Bell pepper help needed

Posted: 19/03/2016 at 13:37

Put a squirt of washing up liquid in a bowl of lukewarm water. 

Hold the pot with your fingers spread across the top of the pot with the pepper stem between your fingers and turn the pot upside down (your fingers will keep the compost in the pot).

Swish the plant around in the water gently then stand  it aside to drain. 

That'll get rid of the aphids.  It also works for whitefly.

I'm feeling hugely guilty. 

All this dry weather has had me in the garden, but I've not sown a single seed yet. Dry weather forecast for the next week too.

Me neither - as we're away for a few days I'm not starting until we get back. 

Glad you got some sleep at least Hosta ((hugs)).

Glad you've got time to sit down for a few minutes Wonky

I've decided to make hot cross buns to take to MIL's so the dough is proving while I have a swift coffee and go to get some petrol ...
