Day 235 {Burning plastic}

January 13th, 2012

I make no secret of the fact that I’m not very good at looking after plants. There are a few ‘hardy’ plants that I’ve managed not to kill over the years, but not many! Over the past 12 months Ian has developed a bit of a green thumb, and has done really well at bringing some of my plants back to life, and also keeping us in fresh fruit and veg by growing it in the garden. So I was quite surprised when my mother-in-law bought me a Narcissus as one of my Christmas presents. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE flowers, I’m just not very good at looking after them….and as pretty as they are…to me, they smell a bit like burning plastic! I recently spent 3 days sniffing various areas of the kitchen, trying to figure out where the smell was coming from, only to find it was coming from my new plant!
