Many people celebrate the season by heading to their gardens and "sowing seeds."
If you have a green thumb and are looking for new seeds and plants to spruce up your garden, check out the Spring Plant Sale at the Chesterfield County Museum. Proceeds will benefit the Chesterfield Life Changing Academy.
Hundreds of plants will be up for sale. Students of the academy raised the plants in the Campbell-Cobb Greenhouse from seeds donated by Lowe's. The money raised at the sale will be used to buy additional supplies for the greenhouse and to support other educational activities for the students, including the Young Chef's Academy, which teaches basic cooking skills.
Plants for a purpose. I like the sound of that!
Here are the "deets":
What: Spring Plant Sale
When: Friday, April 18, 2014, 9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.

What do you get when you combine the following "ingredients":
1) The music of the King of Pop
2) A Cirque Du Soleil cast featuring some of the world's greatest acrobats, musicians, singers, and dancers.
Cirque du Soleil
You get a show that is out of this world!
You get a show that is IMMORTAL.
"Michael Jackson: The Immortal World Tour" takes center stage at the Richmond Coliseum on Tuesday and Wednesday. Based on some of the videos I have seen, this production is electrifying! It is not just in "Black or White." It is colorful, energetic, and will make you "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'!" "Billie Jean" would love it!
Cirque du Soleil
It fuses Michael Jackson's music with the unparalleled creativity of Cirque du Soleil. You can't "Beat It"!
(See what I did in a few of the above sentences? Only die-hard Michael Jackson fans would get it...)

When I open my mail these days, I usually find the words "payment due", "please subscribe", or "you are a winner" stamped at the top of folded, yet crisp sheets of white paper. So, imagine my surprise when I recently opened a large manila envelope filled with paper covered in all kinds of pinks, blues, yellows, purples, and greens. They were homemade cards, and at the top of each one was a crayola-designed "thank you."
