i was watering my neglected basil plants this morning, when i smelled something awfully fruity. that's funny. basil is more. . herby. right? sweet, but, not.
this smell wafted up very strong. very much the smell of sour apple.
then i noticed something else funny.
bubbles were bubbling up and over my basil plant pot and spilling out onto the deck. it was as if my basil had ordered a bubble bath this morning.
then i noticed the large shampoo-bottle-sized container of smelly bubbles for kids that my sister had recently given the girls and which i thought i'd placed out of reach on the outside table was completely empty.
looks like someone beat me to watering my basil today.
