Thanks to his dutiful bird watching, John James Audubon single-handedly shut down numerous avian uprisings throughout the nineteenth century, including the famed Sparrow Subversion of 1843 and the other War of 1812. Discover further bits of winged wisdom with today's Groupon: for $13, you get a single ticket to the Gardener's Garden Tour on Mother's Day Weekend (up to a $30 value) at Wing Haven Gardens & Bird Sanctuary, sponsored by Blackhawk Hardware. One ticket is valid for a two-day self-guided tour.
Created by Elizabeth and Edwin Clarkson in 1927, Wing Haven Gardens & Bird Sanctuary has since spawned into three acres of Southern vistas, formal gardens, and woodland areas. The Gardener's Garden Tour sends green thumbs on a self-guided sightsee of eight efflorescent gardens sprawled across two estates. Navigate perennial plots during the entire weekend, leisurely exploring manicured gardens while spotting rare birds and even rarer birds chirping mellifluous Streisand serenades. Two days provides guests with ample time to absorb the arboretum ardor of Japanese maples, banana trees, cherry laurels, compliment-dishing Ents, and plenty of additional flora. With no limit to today's Groupon, you can purchase enough to invite friends, family, and the jealous flock of plastic pink flamingos loitering on your front lawn.
