Garden with Mom!

Happy Mothers Day!

Today is a great day to go outside and enjoy the day with Mom.

Consider visiting a local greenhouse or nursery together and pick out a wonderful plant for her garden.  Hanging baskets make particularily good Mothers Day gifts.

Visit a public garden with Mom today.  Moms are free at Reiman Gardens in Ames on Mothers Day.
