The Brown Thumb Is Dead


As little as five years ago, whenever I mentioned to my husband that I wanted a garden, or an indoor plant, he'd make choking and dying gestures and then ask me how long it would take for me to kill it. My friend recently quoted that commercial, "Plants came to my house to die." That used to be me
I think it's safe to say the only thing that's dead now, is my ability to kill anything and everything green.
