I joked with a friend that my boyfriend keeps buying me "love ferns" (you know, like from the movie "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days") except mine haven't really been ferns. They have been, more or less, seasonally themed plants! And to be fair, I didn't completely kill the first one (see below) and unlike the movie I'm definitely not trying to "lose him in 10 days" - I just don't have a green thumb.
I believe my roommate was the contributing force in keeping the first one alive for five months! Have you ever heard of a poinsettia to live that long?!
This past weekend he surprised me with the Easter Lilli with purple wrapping! (Even though he is a hokie, he is starting to support the fact that I bleed purple.)
What girl doesn't enjoy getting flowers?! I love it! BUT there is one tiny, itsy bitsy catch... both of the plants he has given me are poisonous to cats! Maybe he is trying to tell me something... Now in Theaters: "How to Lose Your Girlfriend's Cats in 10 Days"
