i realize it's been a while since my last truthful tuesday confession, so i have a good one for you today. remember the mint plant i told you about? well, let's discuss. stephen brought home the plant on wednesday and we were both excited to have a new plant! i forgot all about taking the picture of it with all the weekend relaxing and spring cleaning going on...fast forward to sunday. stephen got home from work and i said "hey what did you do with that mint plant?" stephen said "oh i set it outside to get some sunshine." i can only guess that happened on thursday. when i went outside to check on it, the plant was limp and knocked over. it looked horrible. turns out mint plants need minimal sun and we had it sitting out there in full on sun for the two least cloudy days i've seen all year. then i remembered the huge thunderstorm on friday night. oh lord what did we do?! i'm not sure if it's completely dead or possibly able to revive...but there you have it, we killed the mint plant.
in honor of my dear, possibly departed minty, here is a photo of a not-dead plant.
