    I started walking around my neighborhood and picking up trash! I also successfully got my 8 little brother to do it too!

    I started planting a garden with different veggies in it, and I’ve planted a butterfly and humming bird garden too!

      Your garden sounds wonderful! Our garden's aloe vera plant flowered last week, which I had never seen before, and was discovered by a hummingbird.
