The Market will offer a beautiful variety of colorful annual bedding plants, fragrant herbs, strawberries, and three kinds of tomatoes grown by City Floral. Donations will benefit the Nursery Play Garden at Saint John’s.
Be sure to add a handmade Mother’s Day corsage (or two) to your selection!
The outdoor Market is open from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at 1350 Washington Street, Denver, 80203.
With every $20 donation, gardeners will receive a limited edition Mother’s Day canvas tote featuring the Plant a Row for the Hungry logo.
In addition to all the bloomin’ flowers, flowering baskets, and pots of basil, lavender, parsley, and rosemary, Plant a Row volunteers will be handing out free garden starter kits filled with seed packets and other gardening goodies.
Happy Mother’s Day 2011
My favorite Allan Houser sculpture at the Denver Botanic Gardens is this one called “Singing Heart.” I love everything about it.
Houser completed this bronze in 1994 and it’s a wonderful example of what could be called “The Houser Style.” I appreciate the rounded form and wonder how he was able to create the texture of the mother’s shawl wrapped around her baby. Even though Singing Heart depicts one mother with her child, I feel like it represents all mothers and their children, and perhaps even Mother Earth herself.
