My houseplants are lucky the Sergeant moved in, since I have a black thumb for anything green indoors. He's much more conscientious about watering and such.
Case in point: The amarylises (amaryli?) that I waited too long to stash in the lightless cellar for forced dormancy ... and then forgot about.
I was rummaging in the deep freeze the other day when this one (on top of the freezer) caught my eye. Whoa!
Just goes to show you, plants really do want to grow, no matter what.
