My Husband the Plant Killer

He has a talent. No flower is safe for miles around. He's known for trimming back the flowers and leaving the weeds untouched. Last year in his zest to fertilizer my yellow rose bush, he nearly burned it up.  Yesterday it was my coleus. I'd just bought it. I didn't even have it out of the car before he lopped the top off with his cane. Below is pictures of the knocked off top and the rest of the poor maimed coleus. Oh yeah, and I tossed in a pic of my new gazing ball:) To the gardeners out there: Do you think it will root? I need to ask good bud Rhobin Courtright. Are any of you Courtright fans? She's an excellent author and gardener. I lust for her gardens.

  1. No idea. My hubby is good at growing things but he does shift the plants around the garden. The blueberry bush died of fright after being shifted three times.

  2. I have a Black Thumb and Gaze. A look or a touch from me and plants wither and die. I'm much better with plastic or silk

  3. Shelley, LOL. We'll have a moment of silence for the blueberry bush.
