Sonora Dodd of Washington state thought of the idea of Father's Day while listening to a Mother's Day sermon in 1909. Sonora wanted a special day to honor her own father, William Smart, who was a Civil War veteran. He was widowed when his wife died during childbirth. William Smart raised the newborn and his five other children by himself on a rural farm in eastern Washington state.
As an adult, Sonora realized the selflessness of her father. It was her father who as a single parent made all the sacrifices necessary in raising his children and he was, in the eyes of his daughter, a courageous and loving man. Many of us have wonderful stories of our dads and we celebrate this weekend with them.
Searching for the perfect gift for Dad this Father’s Day? We have many wonderful gift ideas throughout the store that are sure to float his boat. We carry a wide variety of gardening essentials including gardening tools, gloves, and watering supplies.
Add the final touch to his outdoor oasis with a beautiful cast stone fountain and the soothing sounds of falling water. We also have a great selection of cast stone statuary and planters.
When enjoying the outdoors late into the evening, Dad will be thrilled when his beautiful new solar lights automatically turn on! Or, purchase a new tree or shrub for his landscape and then help him plant it. No matter what Dad’s style, you can be sure that Waterloo Gardens has you covered with a great gift idea this Father’s Day!
