RHINELANDER - Getting a first look at spring's flowers, trees, and shrubs sounds like a dream come true for the gardeners out there.
Hanson's Garden Village in Rhinelander is celebrating the start of the season by giving its customers a sneak peek this weekend.
Gardeners can stop in to talk about new plant varieties and get a greenhouse tour.
Spring also means there will be different planting classes every week during April and May.
It's still too early in the season to get your hands dirty in your garden though; you'll have to wait until frost advisories go away.
"End of April to beginning of June is when we are the busiest," said Beth Hanson of Hanson's Garden Village. "Everyone is wanting to get all their plants out and planted before Memorial Day weekend. Everyone is getting their vegetables in the garden. If they started seed at home, that's the time to get the outside."
Even though planting season hasn't started just yet, Hanson's is open during the week for customers.
You'll need to RSVP for this weekend's spring preview.
THREE LAKES - One teenager decided to spend a day giving back to the Three Lakes community 18-year-old Maxwell Blanchard lives in L.A but always makes it back to Three Lakes during the summer.
Blanchard learned how to water ski and wakeboard in Three Lakes at five years old.
On Sunday he spent the day giving free water skiing and wakeboarding lessons.
"[To] get someone new out there to ski or at least get them attempting. It's always fun when you get the kids who are a little nervous out there and a little shaky, then they get out there and they love it," said Blanchard.
Blanchard said every year the water sports community chooses a day to give back and participate in "International Pass the Handle Day."
Kylee Swendson decided to help Blanchard this year with the lessons.
"It's great for everybody to get a chance to learn especially people who don't get the opportunity every day," said Swendson.
