What was the first album that you bought? The one below was my first album
If you have time to listen to the video below – you will hear the tunes that reached my ears in my early teens!
A peace lily in our front room, flowering and being generally lovely!
The Peace Lily Plant or Spathiphyllum first came to Europe in 1824 when it was found by Gustav Wallis in the Colombian jungle. Wallis is remembered for his discovery in the Peace Lily’slatin name of S. Wallis. Along with the lush foliage, it’s a cheap plant to buy, simple to care for with easy to follow care instructions and will also help filter the surrounding air of various toxins. When it comes to the meaning of the Peace Lily name this is down to the flowers with the white raised spathe looking like a white flag of surrender.

The flowers of a Clivia Plant. We gave one to our friends, and it likes their front porch, its has flowered spectacularly. We have had no success with the parent plant!
Clivia make striking plants for the house and conservatory. They are grown for their bold strap-shaped, dark-green leaves and trumpet-shaped red, yellow, orange or cream flowers borne in groups on stout stems. Clivia are evergreen perennials with swollen bulb-like bases and originate from low-altitude woodlands in South Africa.
