A few years ago we were living with my mother-in-law in Midvale while building a new home in Idaho Falls. When we would leave for Idaho for a few days at a time, she would water the few plants we had brought with us. I told her she didn't need to water one plant any more because it was dead. A few days later when we called she said, "That plant isn't dead, it's blooming!" I went to check it when we returned and it was a few small silk flowers that had been stuck into the bottom in the dirt that were 'blooming'.

This story sounds very suspicious. Someone who has a green thumb and works often with plants does NOT mistake a plastic plant for a real one. For one thing, she would have been checking the soil to test for moisture. I'm sure the person who shared this believed it to be true, but it sounds like a fake story to me.

I feel for Wanda because I've done stuff like that myself. So glad she kept using her green thumb on the real outdoor plants!
