Green may be my favorite color, but…

I was reading my friend Julie’s blog post this morning about her adventures in planting. She claims she doesn’t have a green thumb, but after seeing her pictures and descriptions, I question that entirely. Especially because she busted out the word alkaline. You can’t use words like that and say you don’t have a green thumb.

I wandered into the kitchen a while afterwards to make a cup of chai tea (still in my pajamas…man, I love summer vacation!) and while I did, I peeked out the window to check on my beautiful and aromatic basil plants.

I am so proud of them. I’ve been planning meals to include this rockin basil for at least a week…

And when I peeked out there, this is what I saw:

I’m so sad.

So Julie, if you think you don’t have a green thumb, well…a picture’s worth a thousand words.
