This is a blog about me and my activities, not soup to nuts though because I don't go near the kitchen.

Raking Leaves Indoors
Now that winter is here all the indoor plants have been sprayed and brought in the house. When we took the Master Gardener class we were warned that if having a plant that drops its leaves bothers you, don't get a ficus. I have a ficus. The other plant that drops leaves in great profusion is a Boston Fern. I remember my grandmother had a wicker basket planter in her living room filled with Boston Fern. It brings back fond memories. All summer I keep it out on the front porch but now it is in the house. It is a terribly messy plant. The ficus will eventually adjust to the change in temperature but the fern doesn't really. I keep rotating it and watering it and misting it but nothing really helps. Oh well it reminds me of Grandma.
I am a retired electrical engineer. I am the 5th generation to live in Detroit. My hubby, dad, brother, uncles and cousins and I all worked for the auto industry. I hate to cook! I like anything to do with a needle, not for shooting up but for pulling thread. Two of my daughters have a blog and I decided I wanted one too. My hubby said no one would read it.
