growing a green thumb

I've never had a green thumb in my entire life.  Ever.  But I've always loved plants and whenever I am stuck in a creative rut I force myself to go outside and photograph all the plants and flowers in my neighborhood.

Jesse and I recently purchased a bunch of plants for our apartment.  And I mean a bunch.  We've got several plants in every room.  We strategically bought plants that are difficult to kill, though I've admittedly already killed a few succulents myself.

Plants can be oh so temperamental.  But I am just so in love with the way they make me feel when they've grown and bloomed that I've insisted I will learn how to grow a green thumb.  Maybe it will result in Jesse being the plant caretaker (he's had a bit better luck than I with keeping things alive), but somehow we will figure it out.
