Pass-along Plants, Pass-along Fellowship
I am truly a plant geek: when I am dividing plants in the spring, I can’t bring myself to throw them away. My feelings are that living things, be it plant or animal, should be shared or passed-along.
In the back of my house along the fence, I have a nursery of sorts where I plant volunteers or divided plants. If I find myself with extra energy, I pot them immediately after dividing or digging and then I deliver them to porches unbeknownst to the recipients. This has given me the name: The Plant Fairy which I changed to The Petal Pusher.
Passing along plants brings much joy for me and the beneficiaries as most people I know like plants. And it’s not so much that they even have to like plants–it’s the gesture, the consideration of being thought of especially.
To me, it is a small token of friendship that brings me pleasure.
