ARBOR DAY is Friday, April 24. According to the Morton Arboretum, “Arbor Day had its beginnings in an area not associated with trees or forests—the Great Plains.” In Nebraska, to be exact, in 1872. On April 10 of that year, the date originally chosen for tree planting, Nebraskans are said to have put more than a million trees into the ground.
You don’t have to do the same to celebrate Arbor Day; one or a few trees will do. When you’ve put your shovel away, relax in the shade with Riondo’s rainbow of bubbly - the Spago Nero in the green bottle, the Riondo Blu, or Pink Spago Argento.
