Now, in my defense...I have never claimed to have a green thumb by any means. In fact, I have one of the most un-green thumbs that there are. And Jenn was very much aware of this fact when she chose to grace my front porch with this used-to-be beautiful basket.
Not that any of this is her fault; I claim full responsibility for letting our love fern die. Well, okay maybe I am passing blame just a wee little bit.
Afterall -- what was she thinking??? (you know...besides trying to be a great friend blessing me with a pretty plant to improve the aesthetics of my front porch and making my day in the process, all that on top of being one of the most wonderful people that I have ever known...but other than that -- what was she thinking??)
She has already admitted that perhaps it was a mistake, and that next time she will maybe choose to thank me with chocolates or something that I can't kill. That way I won't have to face the disappointment in her eyes when she looks at me and says:
"(gasp) Our love fern! You let it d-i-e!!!"
