Green thumb? Nope, you can’t get a bigger black thumb than mine.
Plants wilt as I pass by.
So these little plants that Brayden begged to buy and grow, effectively have only a very short time to live.
From Bunnings we bought home a dear little pink carnation plant…poor thing.
Brayden specifically requested a strawberry plant…poor thing.
I was partial to this lavender plant but if I truly loved it I should have spared its life…poor thing.
Brayden also wanted a watermelon plant…poor thing.
And then, because we didn’t have enough plants to kill, we planted some bean seeds to watch them sprout…poor things.
I’m doing my best to stay far away from the little plants. It’s their best chance of survival.
Not that the boys would let me take over the highly desirable task of watering the plants anyway. 🙂
They are very serious about this chore.
They’ve also talked me into potting mix, pots and seeds….more victims. Poor things.
But it’s all in the name of education
Perhaps I haven’t passed on my black thumb genes to my boys.
I can only hope. Hehehehe.
