Gifts from the garden can last a lifetime. For Mother's Day this year, give your mom something that she can appreciate for years to come. Plants are a popular gift for their sentimentality; that rose bush or lilac shrub that you plant together will become a lifelong symbol of your relationship. You can watch it grow over the years and can even pass it down from generation to generation. 2020 is the year to take inventory and reflect on the things that really matter. The resounding cure for many of our ailments will always be the love we share with our family. Being outside is one of the activities we can still share safely so whether it's Mother's Day or just the next beautiful May afternoon, get together with your loved ones and plant a new garden to memorialize the year that the world stopped and nature took the reins.
