My Brown Thumb...

Yes, I definitely don't have a green thumb. I have tried and tried to get beautiful flowers and take care of them but no matter what I do, they don't live.

I had gotten these huge blue hydrangeas a couple of years ago and really took care of them but then we went out of town for 3 weeks during the summer time and well, they didn't get as much water as they should have.

So we were in Costco about a month ago and we got this mum. It lived probably the longest I've ever had a flower live. I watered it every other day and it still is trying to die on me.

Got any suggestions?
I mean, look how it's so wilty! It's big but what in the world!

See the brown spots in it?
