It was bound to happen, I knew another one of my plants would bite the dust and I am upset about it.
I had a very tough couple of months. Two of my family members were hospitalized for quite a while, we hosted Christmas, and it was my first year back to work and it was in retail, which means I was working more hours.
I didn’t really catch my breath in all that time and because I had guests, the plants were placed in our screened room. Days would go by and I wouldn’t even look at them.
In January I watered the three and I really overwatered the basil. I didn’t think much of it but then we had a cold snap. When I checked on them, basil was dead and I couldn’t get it to grow again. A part of me was hoping that a seed would flourish and grow.
Now I am down to two and my life is not spinning so fast. I take the time to smell the lavendar and make sure they both have plenty of water and sun.
Here’s to hoping this is the end of my killer thumb.
