Green thumb

I rotuinely kill plants. Despite my best efforts. With the undaunting spirit of the legendary Vikramaditya I buy the most lush, easiest to maintain plant, bring it home, position it in the right place, feed it all kinds of plant food, water it diligently but somehow manage to kill it eventually. I dont have a green thumb. Not even pale green. So imagine my surprise and delight this morning when I spied a beautiful white flower with a dash of purple swaying gently in the breeze. Hurrah!

I might be able to graduate to fish after all and who knows eventually even to a dog. Dreaming on.
