Hello, Mom

Daniel Stowe Botanical welcomed more than 5,500 people to the Garden this weekend in what has become one of the most successful events of the year--Mother's Day Weekend.

Thanks to our partners, WSOC-TV Channel 9 and its Family Focus program and Rountree Plantation Garden Center, the Garden is able to create an unforgettable day for Moms and their families. With Channel 9's help we offer free admission to all Mothers and Rountree Plantation offered a free plant to each those Mothers lucky enough to get here early enough each day.

Something Classic, one of the Garden's preferred caterers offered picnic lunches in advance of the big weekend. Dr. Mitch Moser offered free mini-massages and Mary Kay Cosmetics Consultants were on hand with beauty tips for Mom.

Great planning by Garden staff paired with beautiful spring weather made for the creation of some fantastic Garden memories for the families that were here. And that' a lot of what a botanical garden is all about--creating memories with a connection to plants and nature.

If you haven't made it by the Garden this spring, and you want to see what we're talking about, you might want to make plans to come out soon. Our exhibit, "Come Sit A Spell," is now in it's second month. And connecting you to plants is what this exhibit is all about. In it, we hope you find inspiration for your garden, backyard deck or patio.
