A Sore Thumb

I am constantly working on my green thumb capabilities despite my extraordinary talent to turn every plant under my watch a dreadful shade of black. And though the immortal succulent has even fallen victim to my ruthless ways, it doesn't stop me from practicing my way to horticultural perfection. These arrangements and landscapes are making me [and my thumb] green with envy.


And if push comes to shove, this could be a win-win solution to my gardening woes...

I feel your pain, I used to have a green thumb now I'm all hands and everything dies!

Hang in there! We had our share of successes and a greater share of failures!

Aw man, I'm the worst with succulents, actually. I've had them drop dead within a couple weeks of getting them home.

I totally remember seeing that garden on flipping out! the "Characters" are the best part.
