I have a black. thumb. I am a killer of all plants--a murderer!
Every Spring, Graham gets a big ole grin on his face when I come home with the flowers I am determined to beat the odds with. I usually say, "Shut-Up! I've done my research and these guys are going to make it." But, alas, every. single. year. they don't!
A few days ago, I was inspired by Nester's posts on using plants in the home. I liked her encouragement, her tips, her photos.
Years ago, I rid my house of any and all artificial plants--why did it take me so long to kick out those dust collectors!?! Now it's time to get REAL. So I took Nester's advice and got succulents and low maintenance plants. I'm fighting the urge to water them--apparently over-watering is the main killer of plants.
I took some pictures of my plants and hopefully they will look this good or better in the weeks and months to come. I'm optimistic!
