Dead Plants

 Someone around here must have the exact opposite of a green thumb.  

A while back, one of the staff members very thoughtfully painted a plant pot for me.  

It looks like this:

Isn't that nice?

And eventually, another staff member planted some cat grass in it, which started to sprout delicious looking shoots.  

That is, it was sprouting- until it was dehydrated and then drowned.  Which caused nasty fuzzy things to also sprout in it.  

One morning I walked downstairs to find this:

And now no one has attempted to try to grow anymore delicious cat grass.  So all I have is an empty pot.  With some dirt crumbs in it.  Which if you ask me, is a pretty sad sight.  

No one has taken any initiative yet to try planting something new, though perhaps that's for the best...I could just end up being disappointed again.  

Maybe one day I'll have a pot of delicious cat grass to munch on- until then, I'm trying to figure out how I can get ahold of one those nice poinsettias that are juuuusst out of reach.

That's sad, indeed, Chance. I hope something sprouted for you for Christmas... And I hope your Yuletide was a happy and contented one. Merry Christmas and happy new year!

Poor Chance! Perhaps a New Year resolution for your staff would be to be sure fresh cat grass is always in your pot. Let's start a petition!

Chance, those big red pointy flowers taste terrible! (And they're not good for your digestion, so don't nibble themm.) Wheat grass is tricky if it doesn't have good drainage. Please tell the gardner that a terra cotta pot in a ceramic saucer is a good start -- but be sure to put some shells or rocks over the drainage hole so it doesn't plug and turn the pot into a tub. Have you ever tasted a spider plant? My cats think they're delicious. Of course, they also think spiders are excellent snacks...

Boy, they grow plants there like I do, Chance...
