I am referring once again to my knack of killing plants. No matter how hard I try or what I do I just cannot seem to help them flourish... ... ...or can I? I think I have discovered the answer... the secret to growing success!!
Could it be true? Check out these pics!
Two words: WHAT THE--? How did that happen!? Even my brother commented the other day about how good our flowers look. I was so happy at the comment, no one had ever said that to me about something I had grown before...
The tree in this pic has also had an interesting life... when we first moved in it was was a small collection of leaves less than 1m high. When Juan dug out the old plants he actually removed most of the plant and only left one small little plant that we thought would add some variety amidst the flowers. Before we know it, we have a flourishing green, large plant of 2m in height and still growing! Don't ask me how it happened, but somehow it too, just grew and grew without any special attention.
I don't know what else to say. The pictures speak for themselves.... All I know is this:
Every plant I have tried to keep alive I have killed... and every plant I have left to fend for itself, even to the point of neglect, has flourished... I don't know what this says about me, but if this is the secret to how I grow a successful garden in the future, then as long as I don't touch a thing, I could potentially have the best garden in the street!
Maybe I should leave my remaining basil on the windowsill alone and it will somehow survive... hmm.... it's worth a shot...?
