Did you notice how beautiful the tulips looked this year? It must have been all the wonderful April showers. I had tulips blooming that didn’t show their face last year.
May brings beautiful flowers in time to celebrate our mothers. In May, my mother-in-law and I make our annual trip to Ellmore’s Garden Center. She loves their hanging baskets and combination pots. My father-in-law enjoys purchasing his favorite herbs. Ellmore’s has a beautiful selection of annual and perennial flowers, vegetables, herbs and potting soil. They start the plants in their greenhouses and sell them when they’re ready to plant outside. They’re happy to provide gardening suggestions and fertilizer tips.
Celebrate Mom by taking her out to eat at Lowry’s Crab Shack on the west end of town or the Beautiful South on the east end of town. Both restaurants offer outside dining when the weather cooperates. If Mom could use a new TV or other electronic item stop by Mosby’s and shop. They have a selection of serving pieces, clothing and other items to choose from. The Natural Mercantile offers healthy food choices, including local meats, organic fruits and vegetables. They have handmade jewelry and other gift items as well as vitamins, teas and snack items. Maybe Mom’s car could use an oil change or check up, Progressive Automotive can help you arrange that.
Memorial Day is the weekend that starts our summer holiday season. Let’s not forget the reason for Memorial Day. To all of our veterans, your acts of bravery and sacrifice are not forgotten. We thank you for your service to our country.
