Poor Plants

Do you ever feel guilty when you accidentally neglect a garden plant?  I forgot to water my container garden yesterday and now my yarrow and one of my basils is very dry…  I feel so, so bad.  A lot of people probably shrug or lament the waste of money.  Me – I feel bad for the loss of life and the waste of food.  I feel bad because I’m not developing a close relationship with the plant spirits.  How did I not see that they needed water yesterday?  How did I forget?  I could blame my feeling under the weather, but not after I was out having fun anyway.

I’ve been lazy, that is all.  😦
