Illegal acts of -- beautification!

Guerrilla Gardeners salvage forgotten corners of the urban landscape. They are citizen activists who transform plots in public places without permission -- in the middle of the night!

Kenneth Moore, seen in this video planting tulips late at night in Washington, DC explains: "The purpose behind guerrilla gardening is to plant where it's not being maintained- plant where beauty would not otherwise not occur. This is beauty-- it's also vandalism!"

If you live in an urban area and you get the urge to spread the beauty of plants and flowers in public places, chances are you will find some like minded citizens if you look online.

The movement is growing faster than ever before. Spring is almost here, so start making plans for your floral crime scenes. The cops may chase you away, but everyone else will thank you!
