So, the impatiens have continued to live, and I’d like to thank this little jar for that. In past years when I noticed how they were dying I’d grab something from the kitchen to use, like a 32-ounce cup or something equally functional yet ugly. This year, though, I thought keeping a jar right under the faucet would be good.
It’s sparkly and pretty, and when I see that the flowers are wilting I don’t sigh and think, “Great. Now I’ve got to take care of you.” Instead I think, “Hey! There’s a container already there! I must be a genius – or something equally amazing. Let’s get you guys some agua fresca!”
Remind me to take this thing in when winter comes.
