Pat Bigelow from Bigelow Nurseries has the perfect gift idea for mom.
Flowers. It's probably the most popular gift people get their moms for Mother's Day, and Bigelow Nurseries has plenty - of the potted variety. Cascading over 1,300 acres in six towns, Bigelow Nurseries' hub store in Northborough is popping with herbs, shrubs, perennials, annuals, vegetable plants and more. It would be easy to find a gift for mom there—they've also got a gift shop inside, and items such as benches and birdbaths—but owner Pat Bigelow was particularly fond of a certain offering at the nursery for mom this year. Watch the video to hear her tip.

Watch the transformation at New Leaf Salon of a complete makeover for our Mother's Day winner at Patch.
When Ruth Reeve, a Northborough resident, nominated Julie Stanwood for the Patch Mother's Day Makeover contest, others quickly seconded the recommendation. "Julie is an amazing mother of five children, two of whom have special needs," wrote Reeve. "She manages their busy schedules usually single handedly, as her husband works out of state. Sports, Scouts, school, therapy - she is an active participant in everything they do." As if raising five children isn't enough, Reeve let us know that Stanwood is a dynamic member of the Northborough Junior Woman's Club, a volunteer with "Birthday Wishes" and an outreach coordinator at her children's schools. She also runs the St. Bernadette School's youth group. "She is the 'go to person' when an …

Northborough Patch highlights the best blogs and bloggers of the week. You interested in blogging? Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cami Svitenko asked "What are We Waiting For?" in her post that put the spotlight on moms for Mother's Day, but also begged the question as to why we wait to tell our moms, or anyone, that we love them based on a certain holiday. Ron Goodenow's our resident nature lover, but also a wonderful photographer. Goodenow often spends time roaming the land that surrounds Bartlett Pond, and discovers some pretty neato things. Take a look at one of his most recent blogs about the pond. There is no sense in going all willy nilly and loosey goosey when you embark on a workout. Rita Matraia, who owns The Core Connection in Northborough, talks about the proper way to prepare your body before you work out. It'll help avoid some ouchies. In fact, …
