r.i.p.


my thoughtful mother-in-law gifted us these cutest pots filled with happy greenery/pink blossoms a few months ago.

we have definitely enjoyed them on our front porch.

and tried with all our might to keep them alive & kickin'.
{we promise.}

the highlight of chloe's day was feedin' them with her hello kitty watering can.

guess the summer heat just got the best of 'em!

sorry deb!
we didn't mean to be killers.

come late october-ish we shall recycle & plant something in their place.

rest in peace dunn foliage.

{and happy thursday.}

Hee hee...thats terrible! :)

I got a gorgeous bonzai tree for my birthday and I went overseas and left it with people to look after. And they killed it.

I am still to tell the person who gave it to me.

I love it. I totally killed my mini orange tree in my side yard. Tear...

I am a plant-killer in denial. I have two houseplants on my kitchen table that shoulder really be put out of their misery, but Devlin would be crushed. I can't keep anything alive outdoors for more than a day, literally. The sun here is just not conducive to, well, life!

I can't keep anything alive that's not on a drip system. I had some beautiful hibiscus in my yard at our old house and I kept them lush & lovely all through the nasty summer heat, and then as soon as September rolled around and it wasn't as blisteringly hot (is that a word??), they croaked. Thank you, Arizona. :) Better luck next time! :)
