If you’re looking for a fun activity for Mother’s Day other than brunch, why not take her plant shopping? Help her brighten up her home with some cute succulents, or find something to plant in the garden.
The Mother’s Day Chosen Spot Plant Expo & Sale is on Sunday, May 12th from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm. Admission is $3.00 (children twelve and under are free).
Luther Burbank Home and Gardens
While you’re at the plant sale, you should definitely check out the rest of the Landmark site.
Across from Juilliard Park in Santa Rosa, Luther Burbank Home and Gardens celebrates the life of the famed horticulturalist. Explore the beautiful gardens, taking in the interesting and vibrant varieties of plants. There is a Medicinal Garden, an Edible Landscape Garden, and a Wildlife Habitat Garden. (There are also drop-in tours of the gardens April through October, if you can’t make it on the 12th.)
You can also check out the Carriage House Museum & Gift Shop. The current exhibit is about the 100th anniversary of the National War Garden Commission, which Burbank helped orchestrate.
