this is a twist on cogito ergo sum, and I would like something just as simple for a plaque in my Mother's garden. Thank you J.P.

hortum curo ergo sum
Explanation:

http://www.foreignword.com/Tools/dictsrch.htm
where you can choose English/Latin language pair.
You could enter the word "garden" and see whether there is a quote from a classic.
I like the four words also because of the alliteration
