I can’t keep any plants alive. I love plants in the house. I feel like it makes the house feel more alive. But I can not for the life of me remember to water them in a timely manner.
Then the inevitable happens. Eventually I throw it away, cursing myself. How hard is it to keep a plant alive?
I buy another plant, swearing that this time it will be different. But it never is. Even the hearty plants succumb to my neglect.
Isn’t enough that I manage to keep seven children fed and watered. And alive! Isn’t it?
