Save The Date: Friday Is National Public Gardens Day (VIDEO)

Looking for an early Mother’s Day activity? Consider taking dear ol’ Mom for a stroll through the flowers and enjoy the fresh spring greenery at your local public garden.

Friday, May 6, 2011 is the third annual National Public Gardens Day.

The celebration invites people to explore their local public gardens and learn more about water conservation, native plants, green spaces or just planting a garden in your own backyard. Whether you’re a botany enthusiast, a landscape designer looking for inspiration, or simply a fan of family-friendly outdoor fun, National Public Gardens Day is for you.

Over 500 public gardens and arboreta will be celebrating nationwide with a variety of unique activities, tours and gardening demonstrations. To find a participating public garden near you, visit the National Public Gardens Day website.

Free admission to many participating gardens is available through an offer at Better Homes and Gardens.

Thanks. I agree Brenda T...but everywhere we go if there is a weed to be pulled or a flower to be dead headed, my wife will do it anyway.

Wow, awesome! I am doing a gardening with art therapy treatment today, and the patients are so excited to do it. Everyone needs to feel the earth, especially the ones who are not emotionally and mentally well. Its very healing, in so many incredibly multidimensional ways. I can't express that enough!
