Freebie Friday: Ficus


September 1st is the busiest moving day in Toronto. Over the last week the sidewalks seemed to be paved with gratuit gold. But because of the strict one in two out policy I’ve fought hard against bringing finds home. Except for this ficus tree that I fond abandoned on the curb. I thought I cold get around the policy with a plant if I left it outdoors. It turns out that the ficus is not that tolerant of the cold and will have to come indoors eventually (after I give it a good washing with Neem oil to make sure it doesn’t bring bugs indoors. Plus ficus are supposed to be good for improving air quality. So it’s functional as well as pretty.

Now if I can just finish unpacking so I have a place to put it. I guess that’s what the long weekend is for.
