Somebody please tell me, is the GREEN THUMB, instinctive, inherited, cultivated, learned or is it simply a gift? Honestly am confused. Seems like plants perform better for certain folks.... Case in point, my sister Shanda. This lady is no joke. She knows her way around a garden after years of experience but initially she was a newbie just like me and her plants still flourished.
Recently my sister and her husband bought a beautiful new home and already once again, the place already looks like a mini garden of Eden.
Hmmmmmm, maybe the green thumb is selective??? I tell you what though, the brown thumb is equal opportunity....lots of plants have bit the dust under my supervision. And trust me, I took good care of them but to no avail, they still died. Sigh. Oh well, there is still a bright spot here. I have a sister who happens to be a guru at this so I will let her teach me the ropes. Maybe I can finally have that little garden I crave....hey, a girl can hope.
