Green thumbs indicate many things, including the fact that someone is an avid gardener, a semisuccessful finger painter, or actually just a gecko in need of a lift to the next truck stop.

- For $12, you get family admission, valid for a household of any size, to your choice of the Maple Sugur Fest on Sunday, March 4, or Daffodil Day on Sunday, April 22.
- For $40, you get a family membership to Reeves-Reed Arboretum (a $100 value).
Cheery chatter wafts across Reeves-Reed Arboretum as visitors ogle more than 13 acres of professionally cultivated lawns, gardens, and woodland, which were established in the late 1800s as a private-estate garden. Unpaved trails weave meandering flora fanatics through blossoming leafage including 5.5 acres of formal gardens, various wetlands, and a rose garden showcasing 150 varieties and designs from the 1900s. A wildlife habitat brims with critters and gives Russian honeybees a venue for daily re-enactments of Dr. Zhivago. Members receive discounts on programs and workshops, admission to members-only exhibition previews, access to the Arboretum library, and a 10 percent discount at participating nurseries or other shops owned by trees.
