hold this close

the secret to green fingers

tell no one

but hold this close

the secret to green fingers

is to grow so many

whether seeds

seedlings

cuttings

that there will always be

survivors

I’ve been trying to grow jacarandas

In this colder

higher latitude northern hemisphere

& from 25 seeds

into seedlings

finally

I have one

grown past 2 feet

a budding tree

I have green fingers
