A few months ago, after wanting to do this for years, I planted flowers around the two road signs in front of my house. I look after the new flower beds as if they were my own garden, hoeing, watering and replacing dead plants when necessary. Quite a lot of the people passing by walking dogs etc. have said how nice it looks. Today when I got home there was a pink envelope through my door, addressed to ‘The lady who looks after the flowers’.
Inside was a lovely Thank You card, which read:
Dear Number 1 (my house number)
I have just moved to the area and want to say thank you for looking after the entrance to our road and keeping it so lovely. It makes me smile every time I drive by on my way home.
I can’t tell you how touched I felt to receive this anonymous card and kind words! It really made my day, how nice that there are such thoughtful and pleasant people in this world. I just wish I knew who sent it! Perhaps I will find out one day!.
