Show Some Love-
May is a notoriously busy month for many people, gardeners and parents especially.  Don’t forget to take time to thank the people in your life that make your days a bit easier…I’m talking the teachers and nurses that care for our children, ourselves, or our loved ones fairly often.  May 6-12 is National Nurse Week and May 7-11 brings us Teacher Appreciation Week.  So treat them with something special – maybe a terrarium or airplant for their desk, the always-loved gift of chocolate, a hanging basket or patio pot, a Bauer’s gift certificate, or even a heartfelt card of sincere thanks.  Show some love and gratitude for the helpers of the world this week!

Bauer’s Busy Bees…
Have kids?  Check out our Bauer’s Busy Bees events, held every Saturday through June 16.  In the last few weeks kids have created their very own greenhouse, plant people, and an earthworm hotel!  This weekend (May 12), they’ll be making an extra special creation – a self decorated pot for Mom planted with colorful annuals!  Since this is a very popular event, we highly suggest registering and pre-paying for this particular week.  (Remember registering you child(ren) and pre-payment reserves supplies for your child.)  Stop in from 8-10am (open house style event) and your child can create a special gift for their mom, grandma, or any other special lady in their life! 

Mother’s Day is THIS Sunday…  But don’t worry – Bauer’s has you covered!
Mother’s Day is in just a few short days – don’t forget one of the most important people in your life!  Bauer’s is here to cover all your needs…. a beautiful hanging basket, some candies, and a card.  Or why not make an afternoon and shop together and pick out a nice patio pot or a mix of annuals and create one yourself for her!  Of course, we always have Bauer’s Gift Certificates too if you live out of town (we’ll mail it straight to Mom) or if she’d rather pick out her own items.
