See, I've never been able to keep a plant alive. When I water them, it's too much, when I don't, it's too little. I have a knack for finding exactly the wrong place in the room to put a flower - too much sunlight, too little, too warm, too cold.
About a month ago, though, I was feeling very motivated to try to keep a flower alive. So I hopped over to Ikea (I mean, where else do you buy flowers?!) and picked up the prettiest flower I could find!
|Side note: That's my favorite flower pot ever! I made it during my decoupage phase in Switzerland and I love |
Then.... Then it all went wrong. Suddenly I was finding shriveled blossoms everywhere. I tried watering more, I tried watering less, I tried more sun, I tried less sun. It only got worse. Eventually my beautiful flower pot looked like this.
After those flowers were declared dead, I headed back to to pick out the next victim. This time, I went for more of the cactus variety. Sure, it's a little unusual looking - I've been calling it my Dr. Seuss plant - but I'm hoping it will hang in there!
