Green Thumb

Standard

I spent many summers picking dead heads off of the flowers in my moms fantastic garden, but I’m not too sure if that was enough to qualify me to have plants in my life.  We all know MacKenzie got the landscape gene/green thumb.   I’ve already put one begonia down to rest this summer.  I don’t really blame myself for the whole death of the plant.  When I went to purchase it, a wasp decided it wanted to sit in my car seat.  When I went to sit down the wasp stung me and the begonia went flying out of my hand, in slow motion.  So, that probably didn’t help my cause.  I bet hydration would’ve helped, too.  

Friday I picked up a cute little yellow pot at a garage sale so naturally I needed a plant to put in it.  While I was at the nursery I picked up my second and third begonias of the year, and was given two others for free! (Yay!) I asked the woman to help me pick the plants with the most potential.  We’ll see, I don’t want to let those dead heads down…
