“The best time to plant a tree was twenty years ago. The second best time is now.”
This Chinese proverb is one of my favourite quotes of all time as it reminds me that it’s never too late to do good. There’s something so simple and pure about the act of planting a tree, caring for it and watching it grow. Of course, not everyone has the time, funds or space for a sapling that will one day become a towering version of its former self. To be honest, I don’t have a lot of time or funds myself. But something I do have – courtesy of the land – is space.
So here’s how it works… For each one of you that subscribes to my blog during the month of June, I will plant a tree out on our land in your honour. I will then name it after you and sing ceremonial songs to encourage its growth. Or at the very least I’ll water it.
Happy anniversary to me! Well, to me and Of Houses and Trees that is. It’s been one year today since I redesigned and relaunched my little blog at ofhousesandtrees.com and boy have I learned a lot in those 365 days.
