I don’t garden. I have a black thumb. The best way to kill a plant is to give it to me or ask me to tend it. I’ve drowned many a plant over the years so I stopped trying. Additionally, my much loved black cat Manet was a plant eater and Christmas tree attacker. It was either her or plants. I chose the cat.
I have friends who are into gardening. My friend Greg isn’t good at sitting still so he’s been building new flower beds in his yard. Who knew that they slept? I just bury them, how would I know?
This Peter Gabriel song is dedicated to all the gardeners out there.
