Sharing beauty

“While food stuffs like produce can fill a hungry stomach, you can also provide some food for the soul. Do you have more ornamental flowers than you can possibly display? Perhaps your local garden group can get together and build floral arrangements for a local senior center, hospice or hospital. Sharing the beauty of my garden always brings me happiness and so many of us have so much to share. You could even arrange a garden tour of you and your neighbors’ gardens for a small fee and donate the proceeds to charity.
