So, I don't think I could post this block without commenting on my black thumb. No, I'm not mistaken. I am so bad with plants that I earned the black belt; uh hum, I mean black thumb. I'm advanced way beyond brown!
I am infamous for killing plants. I enjoy having them around but I forget that they need a little wet stuff we all call water. I have four plants by my kitchen sink right now that have survived the carnage by, well, being right by my kitchen sink. Every time I load the dishwasher I water my plants. The eldest plant is a year and half in and things are looking promising.
Outdoor plants though? Forget about it! Even if I see the stinking thing every single day I forget it needs to be watered. I'm so glad the lady that lived here before us was a gardener type. She left rose bushes and annual blooming bulbs behind and since we have a sprinkler system these plants have survived my reign as well.
I am thankful for the variety and beauty plants provide. I'm trying to be a better care taker. I love how creative God is ... and it shows in the plants He invented for us!
