This segment might as well be called, "Need Something To Do That Isn't Fat Tuesday?"
For Boise community members more interested in cultivating flowers than collecting a thick set of Mardi Gras beads, there's Happy Houseplants.
The event takes place at the Idaho Botanical Garden—far from the reveling masses downtown—at 6:30 p.m. and features Dave Fellows and Nancy Willis-Orr discussing how to successfully nurture and grow houseplants.
For those of us who couldn't keep the greenery in our own window sills alive if our lives depended on it, this lecture is a must-see. Entry is $10 for IBG members and $15 for the public. Attendees should meet at the IBG Cottage. RSVP at 208-343-8649.
