Growing up I have fond memories of my grandparents’ garden.
We’d arrive at their house and rush through the gate into the backyard.
We’d run to the very back and open the garden gate.
I can still see them kneeling between the perfectly groomed rows, plucking weeds, perfecting their crop.
A hedge of raspberries around the garden, stopped us in our tracks as there always seemed to be one big luscious raspberry after another to tantalize our tastebuds.
In my teenage years, in North Carolina, we had a huge garden. I can admit, I wasn’t so fond of our garden as I had been of my grandparents.
Then as an adult, I discovered I loved playing in the dirt.
I loved the prospect of bringing to the table something grown and cultivated by my own two hands.
With Mother’s Day just around the corner, there’s a lot of choices out there.
I was recently sent GourtmetGiftBaskets.com’s Mother’s Day Classic Gardening Gift Basket. It retails for $69.99 and is sure to please any gardener.
The Gardening Gift Basket includes:
*A garden tote
*A full-size pair of shears
*Aa pair of gardening gloves
*Two types of shovels
In addition to the garden set up, there’s a delectable selection of gourmet snacks:
*GourmetGiftBaskets.com’s signature Mixed Dried Fruit
* Robert Rothschilds Raspberry Honey Mustard Pretzel Dip
* Dipping Pretzels
There’s even some pampering included after the gardening is done and the snacks are munched–a tube of super-duty “Gardener’s Hand Cream” by Time and Again to soothe hands.
GourmetGiftBaskets.com also offers a wide selection of other fine Mother’s Day gifts Mom’s sure to love no matter what her hobby or taste.
My basket arrived securely in a cardboard box, sealed with cellophane, wrapped with colored raffia and secure inside the box. It’s a beautiful centerpiece and compliments my hope for SPRING!
