As much as I don't like to admit it, I was not born with a green thumb. It is kind of expected around here that if I bring a plant home, I will inevitably kill it. I choose low maintenance plants like petunias, chives and orchids - all of which are hearty and can withstand a little neglect.
Yesterday I was inspired to buy a rosemary plant which I will replant somewhere in my yard. It is known as the "herb of remembrance". Perhaps because it is so fragrant, it is hard to forget. I look forward to chopping a little of this up (along with the German thyme I purchased) and put it in some bread that I bake. Yeah, I look forward to that.
Now if you'll excuse me, I must go water the thyme now ... I'm fairly certain it is starting to wither.
