Random Acts of Gardening

Today i saw a bumper sticker that i thought i authored. But i guess great minds think alike.

Practicing random acts of gardening is often a random act of kindness. I'm thinking public or semi-public gardens, such as those in parks or in front of the post office or doctor's office. I do like to pull a weed or two as i walk by.

We aren't practicing random acts of kindness for praise. In fact, we already know that no one may ever even notice. The ego of "aren't i being good!" is almost entirely absent. These random acts of kindness are not for your persona, your public face. These random acts of kindness or of gardening are your private face, for yourself. I think of it as leaving things better than i found them, which is my New Year's resolution for this year.

Practice a random act of gardening today!
