Plant the Mum

I sometimes wonder why I see this. Are people waiting for their plant to die?

Are they actually disappointed and inconvenienced that it survived past Thanksgiving?

(shaking my head)

If you would do this . . . Don’t you owe an apology to some trees that are producing your oxygen?

Why not find it a proper home? After what it’s already done for you, doesn’t it at least deserve this chance?

You could give it to someone like me . . . but if you put it in the ground on your own property . . .

Don’t thank me now. You’ll thank me in September!
