A couple of days after I assured my son that his lonely sunflower, which had reached about three feet and was starting to flower, was safe and sound in his Dad's hands, it suddenly took a startling turn, grew limp, and perished, as if a miniature heatwave had gripped it by the stalk and melted it. In just two days it withered. I knew I had been keeping it watered. Only thing I can think is that perhaps I didn't dilute the Miracle Gro enough. Now, I have to figure out a way to get a replacement. He is going to be so upset if there is no flower here when he gets back. I am mortified! Bad Daddy! Bad Daddy!


  1. There's gotta be a way to revive it! So sorry. I have no plants in my house because my thumb is anything but green. Sheesh; I can barely keep myself alive. ;-)

  2. I poisoned it with Miracle Gro! Looked about today for a replacement.
