Ok... so you know when you come across a plant in the house that has been hiding on ya...
all kinda dried up and looking seriously dead. The good green thumb knows 'nuf
to strip off the dead bits and water that little puppy to bring it back...
When it happens with me... (rarely, because Z is a rather good green thumb person)
I clear off the dead bits and then water it.
Then I reach a hand over to it,
and point one finger towards the plant.
I get my hand close... almost touching it,
then close my eyes and concentrate on the plant.
Healthy, green, vibrant... think think think think...
and then touch it.
Then I open my eyes.
And, of course, nothing has happened.
