May Day garden party May 7 will entice with music, art and more

SAN DIEGO -- This Mother’s Day weekend, take your mom someplace special to show her how much you care.

This Saturday’s annual May Day garden party sponsored by the Save Our Heritage Organisation promises to be a lovely soiree at the famous Marston House Museum and Gardens, complete with art, music and flowers galore.

The $20 fee includes admittance to the Plein-Air Art Show, refreshments in the garden and performances of classical, jazz and chamber music. There is also a Q-and-A called "Ask the Experts: San Diego Master Gardeners," a silent auction of selected art showcasing San Diego history, and flower-arranging demonstrations. The Marston House and Gardens, 3525 Seventh Ave., will also be open for tours. The event will run from 10 am to 4 pm.

Enjoy a special unveiling and sale of "Balboa," the 2015 San Diego Exposition Centennial Geranium by the Geranium George Project. Proceeds will go to benefit the restoration of the historic Marston gardens.
