repotting fig

Hey folks - Digging Doris is talking about a Ficus Benjamina - a houseplant

NOT Ficus carica aka the common or edible fig. 

You're all (except Treehugger )  getting carried away by the idea of summer sun and warm figs for breakfast  



DDoris - lots of info about repotting and care of your houseplant here

Hope that helps

KEF ((hugs)) stay in bed!!!  Real lurgies knock the stuffing out of you.  Just stay there and let Him Indoors wait on you

 Have a hot toddy

Back from tennis - hadn't played for 3 weeks - gosh I'm stiff

Not raining at the moment, but the sky is that yellowish-grey that means it's going to tip down before long ...

Lyn  thanks I got a message from Kaspersky that there may be some conflicts but all seems ok so far - fingers very crossed. 

My laptop had been running very slowly of late - that problem seems to have been resolved at least

While I was waiting for Windows and Laptop to do their stuff I spent the time with Chilterns and Sarah Raven catalogues ........ loads of ticks and maybes ....... I'm going to have to weed and thin

Oooh KEF   You've not been anywhere near my son and his football club have you?  They all seem to have a similar lurgy!

Anyway, Windows 10 is now installed and I'm managing so far .......

I had a wander around outside yesterday during a lull in the drizzle. Everything is just so soggy and boggy - can't really DO anything

Hello folks. I'm on my phone cos laptop is still upgrading to Windows 10. Started last night and thought it'd be over by now but it needed me to hit a button halfway through so waited until thisorning. Duh! It's 71% complete ATM.
