this jade is dead too

Ugh. Obviously I don’t have anything to say about this, but I had to come clean about the Dolly(s) situation before you spied it in the background of some other cat photo or something. Girl just couldn’t hang on I guess. Or didn’t like living in a teapot. Either way her replacement is already here.

lucky bamboo and augusten burroughs

One of the gals in the office got me this “lucky” bamboo plant for my last day. So sweet, though she totes doesn’t read ‘le blog or you know, she would have known. Hi Carolina are you out there you sweet believer you?!? So far it’s been what? Two weeks? Just watered for the first time and all looks pretty well. This one has no dirt just rocks. I think I’m going to relocate to a glass jar. Though the ‘Rooms thinks that’s where I’m killing them. Re-potting and all. Whatevs, THERE ARE NO RULES IN PLANT KILLAH LAND!

P.S. The jade has all of these little gnat looking things hanging out near it. Do you think they killed it?

P.P.S. Yes, that is Augusten Burroughs staring down the bamboo like a total creeper. Intimidation should keep this one alive.

Augusten will no doubt do wonders for your bamboo, smart thinking;-)

first, my son has had a ‘lucky bamboo’ plant in his bathroom for over a year and it’s still alive. also, he’s been gone at school for over 4 weeks and it’s still alive and we haven’t touched it. #fingerscrossed

second – Augusten Burroughs is one of my ALL TIME favorites. I think “Dry” is at the top of my list.
