Ode to Spring in a Tin Can

Spring in a Tin Can
You were so good to me
You brought me spring when I had none
You brought me flowers when I needed them
You brought me joy over the long cold spring
I am sorry I forgot to water you for 3 days
Please forgive me
R.I.P.

This is what happens with a lot of my plants.I always forget them and feel very SORRY. ( so glad i didn't forget to feed the kids) Weather is fantastic here and hurray! we reached the final with soccer.It was a nerve wrecking game. Have a great day. XX

Maybe it could be planted outside for next year ... looks like our wild daisies that are perennials.

They still have some green on them, a little TLC and they'll come back ;)
Fingers crossed!
Hope you're enjoying your week.

Poor little thing... It grew just for you, Catherine... And what did you do???? NEGLECT it.... Oh Well--maybe you can revive it.. Can you put it in the ground somewhere now????

Hugs,
Betsy

They did their job and maybe you can bring them back to life. Actually, they look like most of my plants - I don't have a green thumb by any stretch of the imagination!

Enjoy your day!

Oh dear, can it be saved? Trim it back and give it the attention it needs and maybe? Brian said something funny, your spring in a can kicked the bucket!

Oh dear, how guilty are you feeling, Catherine?!
I'd say plant it in the garden and it will maybe recover.

I know just how you feel, I always loss a couple of plant every time I go on vacation... If mine were in a tin can I could bring them with me Camping!

Hugs, Linda

Stacey Dawn said...

O the poor little thing....
Guess you'll have to try again next year - I might have to too...love the idea!

Oh dear Catherine, here in Barcelona is so hot right now that even I water the plants early in the morning, at the afternoon they are so dry again...Show to your plant the lovely post and words you have dedicated to it and I am sure it will come back to life!! ;)

I will look for Joy Fielding and Jodi Picoult on my next trip to the bookstore!!!

Have a wonderful day!!!!

Catherine
