Macro Monday

 I don't have a green thumb..at all.  I can't seem to keep any plant alive.  Even plants that aren't supposed to need much attention die on me.  This is obvious by my dead plants that are still hanging out on my deck since the summer.   I think I am holding out a little hope that they will miraculously come back to life.



So needless to say, I was super excited to see my plant that has been hanging out on my kitchen window sill has sprouted new bright green leaves!  It had been just a bare twig a couple of weeks ago. 


We have plans to cultivate a vegetable garden once Spring finally comes and warm weather sticks around.  I have dreams of fresh zucchinni, squash, peppers and tomatos in my future.  Hopefully, with my thumb now a shade of pale green atleast, I can maybe make it happen.  It should be an interesting project..wish me luck!

I can probably match you pot for dead pot :-)
But then, hope springs eternal...
And occasionally there is a success story like this .
Nice to see -- hope it grows up to be a good sound plant.

I love the selective focus and bokeh in the last shot.
