No Green Thumb Here

In June, Nate and I got away for a night to celebrate 13 years of marriage.

We stopped at one of our favorite little towns, Pentwater, and did some shopping.

I bought the cutest lavender plant at a boutique.  Wish I had a picture to show you what it looked like when I bought it.

After less than a month, it looked like this.

So, I got online to see how to care for my pretty little plant that was clearly dying.

And now it looks like this.

I do not have a green thumb.

My daughter teases me about this fairly often.

We were at a friends' house enjoying their pool the other day, and I started watering their flowers.

Emilia said, "Mom!  What are you doing?  You're going to kill their flowers!"
No confidence.
But she's right!  I either water a plant too much or too little.  I either give a plant too much sun or too little.
I marvel at others who can actually keep plants alive.
Maybe someday, when the kids are a bit older, I can put more time into figuring out how to keep green things...green.
Until then, I'll just limit the amount of plants I buy knowing that my thumb is not, and never has been, green.
