Mother's Day

It looks like a near perfect weather weekend is in store. It is Mother’s Day weekend, so I will be working but I hope to squeeze in some time for my yard.

Right now it is the time of year that you can do almost anything in your yard and garden - divide perennials, plant annuals, sow grass seed, plant up moss lined baskets, palnt trees and shrubs, put down crabgrass control (get that one done right now). Just get out and enjoy the beautiful weekend. If you want some tips on making moss lined baskets and containers, see the video from the KSTP segment that aired on Thursday.

If you have the time and are looking for something to do with Mom, how about a trip to the University of Minnesota Landscape Arboretum in Chanhassen? I try to make a trip out there at least three times a year. It should be picture perfect right now with lilacs and tulips in bloom.

Saturday Morning during 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS Weekend I will be talking herbs during the 8:00 hour.

Most importantly Happy Mother’s Day!

Make your day and weekend a good one.
