Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Secret Garden Elf Helping a Neighbor out


--by wdunnett, posted Dec 23, 2015
When trimming our hedge, I noticed that our neighbor had still not cut his half back. He often works away from home and is not all that interested in gardening.

The snow could come any time now and would split the hedge if it is heavy. Rather than being annoyed I decided to go round to his side and trim it as well (the houses have a connected path along the back) . I put the trimmings into his compost bin together with the leaves that were smothering his lawn.

Hope he is happy with this rather than annoyed that I did stuff in his garden without his permission ;-)
