We had a short life together. It seems like just yesterday I brought you home, a reminder of a wonderful vacation. Knowing cactus life span, you probably had a wonderful 10 to 15 years in your native Arizona before coming to live with me. But for some unknown reason, our time together was not meant to be and you were called home to that great desert in the sky.
I followed all the directions. I only watered you once, the month after you came to me, but you were already looking a little wilted after our first 3.5 weeks, so I also brought you to my office so you could get some more sun.
But it was all for naught.
And now, I must bid you a fond farewell. I will miss you. Thank you for blessing my life for as long as you could. I'm sorry I failed as a cactus mommy. Again.
