Good Sister, Bad Sister

Why is it that you can buy 2 plants, plant them next to each other, treat them the same- and then one of them up and dies on you?

I hear this question a lot. My explanation? I usually say that plants are just like people and that in a family you are bound to get a rotten one. Ioften say, “Hey, you haven’t met my sister!” But she just hooked me up with a pink Blackberry so I need to find some new schtick.

Maybe that act of no longer throwing my sister under the bus to complete strangers will bring this lavender back from the dead?

Questions? Comments? Noticed that I’ve been using the names of Hole songs as the titles for my posts lately? I’ll be in the forum. Let’s scream about it.
