There's More Than One Holiday You Can Celebrate This Weekend

May 6, 2014

We challenge you to become more acquainted with Mother Nature.

Sounds simple, right? You've greeted the sun's rays time and time again because its warmth brings a smile to your face. Lush green grasses greet your feet as you tiptoe through the lawn on a pleasant summer afternoon. And now, you look forward to hearing the birds singing through your open bedroom window to awake you each morning.

But after the weather some of us have experienced so far this year, the opportunity to even see sunshine or walk outside without a jacket on any given day is something to be excited about. Just think: Wouldn't it be nice to be warm, dry and outside, all at the same time? (We can assume many of you know how we feel!)

Mother's Day represents that slightly breezy, sunny, happy day we dream about this time of year. It's a day we plan to celebrate with the women who cared for us in childhood and who continue to look after our well-beings today. It's the perfect spring Sunday for picnics in the park, brunch buffets in town or home-cooked meals at the dining room table.

Mother's Day is also a great time to spend outdoors, while learning to better appreciate Mother Nature.

National Public Gardens Day Kicks Off Mother's Day Weekend

If you're all-too-eager to take a walk in the park, swing in the breeze or simply soak in the sun, you're in luck. Thanks to National Public Gardens Day, which we'll celebrate this Friday, May 9, you have more than one reason to bless Mother Nature (and your mother) with your presence this weekend.

The American Public Gardens Association (APGA) dedicates the Friday before Mother's Day to celebrating "the environmental stewardship of North America's public gardens and their local, regional and national leadership in resourcing the nation's conservation and environmental education needs." In other words, all gardens, whether public, botanical, educational or historical, deserve our interest, attention and care.

This weekend, as lawns and landscapes breathe life into our air, as blossoms continue to emerge and impress us with their beauty, and as sunshine brightens each morning with happiness and warmth, you'll want to visit the local gardens that enhance the quality of life in your community. You won't be disappointed.

The Great Outdoors

At Davey, we value the benefits public gardens and other community green spaces provide the environment in which we work, live and play. But we also appreciate the care and attention you apply to the gardens and landscapes in your own backyard. If you're looking for more guidance, tips or advice for proper plant health care, contact your local Davey professionally trained arborist for a free consultation.

In the meantime, we hope you can adhere to our challenge to familiarize yourself with Mother Nature this spring and beyond. We sure don't want to miss an opportunity to soak in the sun, dance in the rain or play in the dirt-and neither should you!
