2 Note to Self: Plants Need Water

>> Saturday, January 2, 2010

I feel the need to preface this post by saying that never in my twenty-some-odd year old life have I claimed to have the greenest thumb on the block. In fact, the sad gardening truth is that my thumb is actually a very murky shade of brown. 

I know it is not that hard to keep a tree alive and yes, I probably should have watered it more in one month’s time than I actually did—I will not reveal to you how many drinks I offered our tree during his stay, but I will say it was less than the number of fingers needed to make a peace sign.

Once all of my Christmas darlings were plucked from the branches…

Our old pal, Christmas tree declared war. With every wiggle and shake of a branch, General Tree launched grenades of dry needles in every direction…

When all was said and done, we ended up with one heck of a mound of tree debris—along with a few duck guts from a certain four-pawed fellow’s toy basket. Ralph blamed her death on world-war-tree, but I think I know who the real culprit is here.  RIP Mrs. Duck…

Lesson learned. Plants need water. Next year I’ll be a better hostess.
