The black thumb strikes again

I managed to kill another plant this week. I bought some potted zinnias a few days ago at Home Depot, thought they looked really cheerful on the plant stand next to the front door, have been remembering to water them reasonably often -- I do know things dry out fast when the temps are pushing 100 -- but came home today to something that looks mummified.

Maybe I should just concede defeat and invest in gnomes instead of trying to keep something green alive in Atlanta.  Hokie, Hokie, Hokie, Hi!


  1. I planted zinnias once (in humid New Jersey) and they all got some kind of fungus and died. Maybe they're not that easy to grow, maybe it's not just us?

  2. I have some shrubs in annoying places around the yard, but the spouse insists on keeping them. You wouldn't be passing through central Va. soon, would you?



My space, my rules: play nice and keep it on topic.
