    Don’t worry sweetie – I have a very black thumb myself…hence the reason I haven’t even TRIED a succulent garden. (And thanks for the Little Mermaid reference. Now I’ll be humming “Poor Unfortunate Souls” all day. Yee Haw.)

    Maybe you can give your little wooden bunnies an artificial flower home to play hide-and-seek in from now on! You can’t kill those! 😉 XOXO

      I’m *this close* to just hiding the wooden bunnies in the cupboard until next Easter. I don’t know that they’d mind. They seem pretty depressed right now with this never-ending nap they seem to be taking.

      (And yes, who doesn’t love a good Little Mermaid reference? Ursula is fantastic!)

    I might be able to keep a plant going but I’ve killed so many fish I’m banned from all pet ownership. It’s okay these things happen cheer up.

      Yes, you have a bright green thumb, don’t you? I’ve had good luck with fish in the past, but then, I owned all of my fish prior to having children. I wonder if this time might be less successful?

    Ha!

    Fish are hardy…and probably would do better out of the sun 🙂

      I’m thinking that I’d probably have better luck with a goldfish.

      Even though they have a reputation for going belly-up at the randomest times. 😉

    I’ve killed every plant I’ve ever had. Even the ones they claim are kill proof. Succulents are the WORST for me. I love that there is someone else who shares my ability to destroy mother nature like I do!

      Isn’t that funny? I have some plants that have tolerated me for years. But my succulents? Pffft… they didn’t even try.

      Quitters.

    I’m so glad to know that I’m not the only person who has those fails. Sigh, how long are succulents supposed to live anyways?!

      I hope that they’re not supposed to live longer than a few months. Then I’m right on target! 😉

      Yep. Long live the ugly one. He’s the tallest and the strongest, apparently. And has exposed roots.

      I’m an awesome plant-mother.

    Oh no!! I’m afraid the same thing may happen to mine when I bring it in. It’s been happy outside all summer…but fall is just around the corner.

      I’m sure that you will be able to keep yours alive. It’s some sort of plant curse that I have. First I drowned them, and then it looks like I deprived them of all of their necessities of life. It takes a special talent! 😉

      I’m just totally amazed that I killed succulents. It’s like killing a catcus. Or a rock.

      It’s really something special. House plants should properly fear me now.

    Too funny, only because this would totally be me. It’s the reason that the only two plants that we have in this house are made of material and plastic. Good talking to ya earlier! We will talk again soon!

      Oh, I love that you have faux plants! I didn’t notice that you did, then. I must have thought they were real.

      Maybe that’s what I need to do: scout out some high quality fakes!

    Awww, it’s okay :). No worries! I’d probably kill them too. Hence the reason my hubby is the gardener in our house!

    Tara, succulents and cacti aren’t always all that easy to grow! I remember when I was about 10 getting a cactus. Well, I knew that plants and light need water to survive….well I learned that too much of a good thing isn’t all that good. I over watered my cactus and it exploded….I was devastated!
