green is so much nicer than dried up and dead
The Frenches have been known to be a family of black thumbs. We have killed lawns, trees, countless flowers and plants. For awhile I had felt a sense of reponsiblitly to the leafy community not to plant anything. This was all fine and dandy when we lived in Minnesota. Then we moved to beautiful, lush, green Portland, where having pretty plants is almost a given. I still had managed to stay away from vegetation, then we became good friends with the ladies next door.
