On January 5, I drove from my parents’ house back to my own home with my late grandmother’s plant in tow. In spite of Mawmaw’s magical green thumb, I thought the prognosis would not be good. I am a murderer of all things green (ironic, since that’s my favorite color), and I have only had one plant survive more than a few months under my care. As you can see from my January 22 Project365, I was surprised it even survived THAT long.
It’s June 5. I present to you, THE PLANT, six months after I took it over:
Not only has it survived, the crazy little guy has actually GROWN! I can only believe that Mawmaw’s magical thumbprint has managed to stay on it and protect it from my murdering skills.

Yes, I watered them! I told you, plants hate me.
