Mother in law's tongue has never been one of my favourites (nothing to do with the name) I don't think I've ever seen one flowering before. Your plant actually looks quite attractive. Sometimes they look quite nice in an architectural context.

I have never seen mother in laws tongue flowering before, wow!
I am in sympathey with your having to go back to work after such a nice break, I spend my holidays at home because I never want to leave the garden or the cats, I'll go away for a weekend but thats enough.

Thanks Roybe I spent years looking for the plant after seeing it in my houseplant book.After the 1970's they stopped being fashionable.Thirty odd years later and i found one in a home furnishings store in york.
Claire the scent from the flowers is so strong.Kind of tiger lilly like.The kitchen smells of them.So fragrant, but very strong.
