Blog-a-Prompt Day 5 - Spicy!

Today is D's birthday - she turned 8 :). We have a lot of family around, so spent most of the day outside, and really not feeling like writing too much right now.

In any case, the first thing that came to mind is the simplest thing for me to post :). This chilly that has started appearing on my plant that I originally thought to be scotch bonnet, but now seems to be a kandhari variety or related. Whatever it is, it's lovely :)

The theories have been white gandhari or "ari milagu"

Yes I don't know what I'll do with all of them :)
Till tomorrow and the next prompt then :)

    1. I have a feeling the original plant may have been a hybrid of some sort Aathira, so no clue what may come out of the seeds of this one :). You can definitely have some seeds if you want to give it a try though!

  4. Pickle them :-). But seriously this is just so amazing. Hugs to D for her birthday. So she's a Gemini too.. as are Hrit and Naisha - 3rd June. I'd always been apprehensive about Geminis. Must exchange notes on day on what it's like brining up these mercurial kids.

    1. Tulika, the spice quotient in our household is seriously low! Don't ask me why I am growing these in the first place :).
      Geminis both! Wow, we must have a discussion. I have a tough time with just one, though she's toned down a bit now compared to when she was younger. I actually bought a book about "spirited" children at a time when I couldn't cope.

    2. Geminis are the sweetest people! Aren't they? ;) I am one too :p

    3. Simz, from what I know of D - sweet, affectionate and sometimes maddening ;)
