If you live in the Seattle area and have a few hours free on Sunday, come celebrate Mother’s Day at Magnuson Park. Local pruning gurus Plant Amnesty are putting on a Festival of Trees, an extravaganza of all things arboreal.
Classes on tree selection, planting, and stewardship by gardening luminaries like Ciscoe Morris and Linda Chalker-Scott will go on all day, plus there will be music, juggling, a parade, and plenty of folks dressed as their favorite tree.
Sunday, May 10th 10am – 4pm
at Sandpoint Magnuson Park
7400 Sandpoint Way NE, Seattle
And best of all, it’s totally FREE! For more info, click here.
We’ll be there for sure, since I can’t think of a better way to spend “my” day, and also my daughter can’t wait to check out the tree-climbing activity. “Safe and supervised,” hm.
Happy Mother’s Day to all!
