I admit to be slightly jealous of your living in Hawaii. I
wish I had a year round temp that didn't change. I also wish
I had SOIL. We have clay... hard, solid clay that even an
hour's worth of chipping away doesn't seem to change. Ugh!
Though despite the fights I have outside with mother nature
and our soil (cough) -I mean cement- I can't grow plants inside
either. My children have dubbed me the "Plant Killer."
When my husband brings a plant home to surprise me, they
usually point in my direction and say in an accusing tone, "Don't
kill this one, Plant Killer." In other words, I definitely do
not have a green thumb. I could perhaps have a black thumb,
my husband suggests.
