With spring in full force and Mother's Day just days away, a great way to celebrate both events is with a trip to one of the Okanagan Valley's most beautiful public gardens. You can treat your special mom to not one bouquet, but a whole field of flowers by planning a picnic to this colorful garden, and even pick up some plants of your own at the weekend Plant Sale.
Situated off Highway 97 in Summerland, the garden is not a far jaunt from the luxurious Walnut Beach Resort, so you could even plan a memorable weekend in the scenic Okanagan Valley. After enjoying a celebratory brunch at your resort, you can head to the spring fundraiser and pick up your own supply of vegetables, herbs and annual blooms.
One of the region's most beloved catering companies, Joy Road Catering, will provide refreshments for the event, serving up local, fresh cuisine from the British Columbia region.
If you have any time left over, be sure to explore any of the beautiful vineyards that make up the Okanagan Valley landscape. By the time the weekend's over, your mom will be amazed by your thoughtful Mother's Day planning.
