I love you-why can't you love me?

I love ferns and the various kinds of ivy. They're so green and lush, but in my hands, they turn brown, brittle and dry.

I picked up a fern and an ivy about a month ago. For two weeks, they seemed okay. This morning, I realized that their days are severely numbered.

Damn, and I try so hard. Misters, plant food. . .

Next trip to Home Depot, I'll drop some money on another fern and an ivy as well because I'm stubborn like that.

I have the same relationship with bonsai. I adore their precise little selves, the way they make their own tiny world. But then I buy them, bring them home, and watch them die. And it's not easy to kill a tree, even a miniature one, but somehow I always manage. And then I go buy another one.
