Apparently I don't have a green thumb like my sister's fiance.

Remember that talk by President Uchtdorf, Forget Me Not? Around Easter time I was at Target (I love that place), and I saw some forget-me-not flowers in the little pots. I decided to buy some for my sisters, mom and I. I was excited to plant these and watch them grow because I have never really grew anything before. I followed the instructions: wetting the soil, pushing the seeds into the soil, watering them and placing them next to sunlight. The next day after I started this is what I saw...

Oh I was so excited! And then a couple days later...

More of them started sprouting. I thought to myself this is so exciting. I can totally do this! Then about a week later, actually I'm not sure, yeah probably about a week. It was getting tall.

By now I wasn't seeing any drastic change. It was the weekend and my aunt went out of town and asked me to watch her "babies", 2 dogs and a cat. When I got home Sunday night I remembered that I had some forget-me-nots. Unfortunately I forgot them. *sad face*

I killed them. And I was doing so well! Needless to say I don't have a green thumb. I think it's kind of ironic that I forgot about the forget-me-nots.

  1. Yea that is kind of funny.
    I am sorry that you inherited the black thumb from me. My forget-me-nots didn't even come up.
