When I was looking to buy my wedding invitations (back in April), I found a lot of designers on Etsy.

Cactus Jack

I’m not so good at keeping plants alive. This summer I had a tomato plant, sweet peas, basil, cilantro, snap dragons, and various other plants in my “garden.” Not a single one of those lived to see August. I don’t know what’s wrong with me–the green thumb obviously skipped my generation. My dad was a farmer when he was a kid. A FARMER. That means it was his JOB to grow things successfully and his livelihood depended on it. Luckily, mine does not.

So when I saw this cactus at Home Depot, I thought for sure that I could keep THAT alive. I mean…it’s a CACTUS. You only have to water it like, once a month. You can leave it in the sun and just forget about it! But, no. My cactus, of course, is dying as you can see above. The little cacti on the side are brown and shriveled. It’s amazing Luna has lasted as long as she has.
