How does one show appreciation for the countless hours of cooking and cleaning, nurturing and teaching, and so many other things that Mothers do? Tower Hill Botanic Garden shows it by offering FREE ADMISSION for all Mothers on Mother's Day Weekend. Whether an avid gardener or just one who admires the beauty of nature, all mothers will appreciate a visit to this garden paradise, bursting with the colors and fragrances of spring, and located just east of Worcester. Families are invited to spend the day by strolling the gardens during this peak of display. Visitors are also welcome to bring picnics, although alcohol is not permitted. The Gift Shop will feature many items for Mother's Day gifts, including greeting cards and plants. Consider a membership for Mom, and she can return to the Garden free of charge for a whole year, and get a bouquet of other benefits, like 10% off purchases at local participating garden centers.
