Easy Tips for Assembling a Perfect Spring Gardening Gift Basket
To honor the changing of the seasons, I am sharing how to make the perfect spring gardening gift basket – just in time for Mother’s Day and Earth Day!
Spring’s Most Beautiful Sound
Something happened this morning. Something marvelous and wonderful: I was woken up at the crack of dawn!
(Stay with me here, I promise I’m not a lunatic).
I was woken up by a magnificent sound. For once, it was not the shouts of my three-year-old down the hall demanding to come out of his room for the day or the hungry cries of my baby insisting that I hurry with her first bottle of the day.
No, it was a glorious noise. A noise that crept into my dream and gently nudged me awake.
It was the birds!
The birds are back with all their maniacal chirping! In a few days, I’ll find this noise annoying at 5am, but not today. Today their melodies mean one thing to me – SPRING! It’s here, and I couldn’t be more excited!
Looking Past the Snow
My excitement may or may not have something to do with the freakishly late snow storm we had yesterday and the fact that as I’m typing this, I’m nearly blinded by the sun rays bouncing off the pure white snow and through my window directly into my eyes.
I don’t even care that I see the remnants of yesterday’s snowman on our front lawn because you see, the birds are back!
Literally the day before the snow started flying I was out digging in the good brown earth, clearing ground cover, pulling up early spring weeds, cutting back perennials, giving our decorative grasses a buzz-cut and disposing of an abandoned bunny nest that had taken up residence in our landscaping over the winter months.
I cannot wait to get back out there and dig some more!
In Honor of Spring: A Gardening Gift Basket
In honor of the changing of the seasons, I just had to share the perfect spring gift, which I plan to give my gardening-loving mom and mother-in-law for Mother’s Day. The beauty of this gardening gift basket is its versatility. You could also assemble it for a spring birthday gift, housewarming gift, teacher gift, or ‘just-because’ gift.
