remember this lovely plant i blogged about earlier? g gave her to me for valentines day & what a darling hydrangea she was.
i was, however, very concerned about the well-being of this little lady. you see, i am the plant killer, and i knew that husband bought me this plant specifically because "bouquets are a waste of money, they die in a week". so instead of dropping all that cash on roses, he wanted to get me something that we could enjoy for a while.
at least that was the plan.
that's right. i got involved & killed the little sucker. i really don't know what i did. i tried to be a good plant mother. i followed the instructions of my personal florist & even googled to learn more about my new house guest. i checked the soil for dampness daily & even spritz the little love with cool water each morning in addition to the water she got every 3rd day. ms. hydrangea did not pass away for a lack of love. she was admired by all who entered the olsen household (for that WHOLE 5 days!!).
my wonderful friend, mckenzie, was nice enough to come upstairs & check on her when i reported her death. she came up with high hopes of reviving the little sucker, but was shocked (as was i) to see that in 24 hours, ms. plant had completely withered away.
thanks to mckenzie's great recommendation, i have called the florist & claimed that the plant "must have been sick or something" and the nice manager has agreed to come let me pick out a new one tomorrow. any recommendations for something that is bullet proof? we are talking a plant that can live anywhere, under any conditions & without food or water, and is possibly earthquake, fire, flood, jacky b. & plant-killer proof?
g isn't home yet, and i am seriously nervous for him to see what i've done to his gift. g & ms. hydrangea had a special bond, right from the start.and now i've just written 6+ paragraphs about a bunch of hydrangeas. bless all of you who read this pathetic excuse for a blog.
that is all.
