With a clear signal from Mother Nature in the form of a lovely spring day, Harlequin’s gardeners came out to play and shop last weekend, taking in the delightful spring ritual dancing of our friends, the Maroon Bells Morris Dancers, and taking advantage of our May Day sales. We hope you’ll come out this weekend too, to enjoy our wonderful live music!
Our plant sales continue through Sunday May 7th, with a Deep Discount section still brimming with excellent perennials and various other plants, as well as 25% off our beautiful Cool-Season Vegetable starts. (Mountain gardeners – this is your moment!) And for Members, our offer of $5 off a full-price plant purchase of $50 or more still applies through Sunday. HERE are the sale and event details.
There is something special and exciting about the arrival of May. In May, Spring weather may still be variable, but there’s nothing tentative about the progress of growth and flowering. They are unstoppable, full speed ahead!
At Harlequin’s Gardens, we love to celebrate May Day. This ancient festival from the British Isles welcomes Spring and celebrates the beauty, fertility, and abundance of the Earth. For 30 years, Harlequin’s Gardens has maintained a tradition of starting off our May Day festivities with hosting the Maroon Bells Morris Dancers, performing their lively traditional dances with bells, music, knocking sticks and waving scarves to bring forth the Earth’s fertility. The magic seems to work!
Our Annual May Day Festivities and Spring Sale begin April 29th!
