                  I can't post any photos yet. My computer is waiting to be replaced by a younger sibling and this old laptop is unable to access the backup.

                  I hope to be up and running again soon :fingers crossed: but I'll have to get used to the new operating system. :doh:

                    Ok, I know I'm sad, but this little table collection has me wanting to shout with joy this morning.... ( but I can't, as everyone is still asleep!)

                    From the left in the maroon pot, my 3 year old date palm, that is finally starting to have palmate leaves.
                    In the white pot with black bamboo decorations, a citrus pip plant that I identified for a friend, and she gave me as a 'thank you' (it's now at least twice the size it was 2 months ago).
                    The pot on the plastic tray - that tiny pink blob on the right-hand side? That's a mango seed, starting to sprout!!:yay:
                    The plant in the white pot, that seems to have a right angle bend in the stem, is a first ginger leaf, coming up from a ginger tuber.
                    Then a pot with two more 3 year old date palms, not yet growing palmate leaves.
                    :wub2:Finally, a blue tray with little pots of maidenhair, and sword fern babies, grown from spores - mainly from the pot with the white label in it (I use the label to gently tease the baby plants from the soil surface).

                    Sad I know, but I'm growing a Mang-go!!!:yay::wub2:
