Is There a Black Thumb?

Jim is always teasing me that I cannot keep a houseplant alive to save my life, or its life, more appropriately. If it's green, please don't bring it into my house. This is where houseplants come to die. But I like to think that maybe I'm just helping them out of their misery, like the Dr. Kevorkian of potted plants, without the jail time. If it weren't for me, there would be strewn ceramic pots and garden soil littering the area under the nearest bridge. So, you're welcome. :o)

Besides, it's a trade off. Which is more important, that the banana leaf tree in the corner is still alive (ps it's not) or that the kids are? I let him pick because there are plenty of days I miss that tree. :oP

Here are some plants more suited to my gardening style.........

Oh my we need to start a team for plant killers! I too kill plants. Even those aloe plants that are sooo easy to take care of. I am surprised my kids have lasted this long ;)
