I collect clippings. Some are from my neighbors but most are secretly stolen from plants I see when taking walks….SNIP SNIP SNIP. Maybe it is A Very Naughty Thing to do. But I prefer to see it as a way of spreading beauty and joy.
The clippings are then placed in jars of water and kept on the front porch until they start to root. At present I’m rooting basil, sage, mint, honeysuckle, bougainvillea, pomegranate and jasmine.
The propagation of beauty shouldn’t be limited just to plants.
Smiles are like clippings that cultivate goodwill. The more you smile, the more others will smile in return.
So let’s take a walk in a garden of smiles!
