2010 – Iki-shi, Nagasaki-ken, Japan, Earth


The power of my black thumb.Before Xtine left to visit the Americas for Christmas, she gave me her (then thriving) poinsettia to care for.  I warned her before she left that I had, what I term, a “black thumb.”  I.e., if you put a plant into my care, no matter how much I try, I will end up killing it.  I have no idea what I did wrong–I tried hard not to over- or under-water, I kept it in my rooms so it would have heat, and I made sure it didn’t have direct sunlight.

I guess that’s just the way the cookie crumbles sometimes.  Or in this case, the leaf.
