If you've followed my blog for any length of time you know I can grow just about anything in an outdoor garden. Bringing plants inside my house is signing their death sentence. I can't make a chia pet grow. This is a serious problem. A plant I received as a birthday gift recently actually lasted almost two months. The really funky curly poinsettia that Nanna just gave me has only lost a few petals so far. I have high hopes that it will last until Boxing Day but not much longer.
Every year Grandma Shirley would give me an amaryllis and every year I would try and make it grow. I don't think one ever survived to Christmas Day. Hey, I can't be skilled at everything (just kidding . . . because I can. I'm just not)!
So now you know my not so secret shame. I kill houseplants. Nanna, on the other hand, can make anything grow. I just got a call from her the other day because she is so thrilled with her new plant and she wanted photos taken.
