Two yellow tree lillies, the scent in the evening is strong. And my Watsonia is in flower, eight flower spikes in orange and electric blue stamens.

Both my parents worked. My mum would leave me a note telling me what was prepared for our dinner and I cooked from the age of 14. I did washing up from the age of 10. All three of us could do all household jobs by school leaving age. We all did jobs for my nan who was severely arthritic. We never looked upon it as a boring chore, we were helping out, and in our way we still do this.

Chilli advice

Hi Waz

this question was asked by someone earlier today. The answer is no. If you do this you won't get lots of flowers or chillis. If anything you can pinch out the top so that you get more small leaves, more flowers and then more chillis. You'll have a bushier plant but nothing excessive.

Could the small pink one possibly be lobelia?

Another chilli plant question :o)

According to my hubby, quite the opposite. If you leave them you will get a better crop of chillis. You would be better to pinch out the leader to make your plant bushier and therefore more side shoots and more flowers.

Yes I can remember my dad asking me how to make scrambled eggs when my mum had tonsilitis (I was 10)

Mystery plant at the bottom of my garden. I've never seen this before and it isn't something I planted.
