#87 - Do something before I feel ready
I've never had a green thumb. After various attempts to have plants, none sucessful, I eventually just decided to only every get cut flowers as they are pretty while they last and you *except* them to die. But... I do like them which is why I put #38 Keep a plant alive from ‘The Auction’ from one year to the next on my list of 101 things. Considering the auction isn't until November I thought I had tons of time to relax on the keeping plants alive front .. until... a coworker who is in a few days a week asked me to care for her plants where she isn't here. Oh my, I was like - pick someone else!! Not me!! I'll kill them!! But after saying this she still insisted I could do it. After a few weeks I missed them on the days when they were not on my desk. A few days after that, there was some secret repotting going on, I ended up with my own little violet. Wish me luck in keeping it alive!
