Spring heralds the return of many favorites in our little town--bikers riding gleefully down the Greenbelt, Capitol City Public Market and the smell of all those flowers and plants wafting thick through the ever-warming air. The only problem with these lovely happenings? Often they wait until April to truly appear, making some of us feel like the groundhog who didn't see his shadow, only grumpier.
Luckily, some of the beauty of spring is coming to downtown Boise early this year. The Boise Flower and Garden Show will soon arrive at the Boise Centre for two full days of flowers. Plant lovers and all of us who could use a dose of pretty will rejoice--the event boasts a long list of activities that will leave you itching to mess around in the garden. Education is also a priority at this year's event. There will be vendors on site who can assist with all your unique gardening questions and guide you to the appropriate gadget. Gardening seminars will also be held, covering basic to advanced flower gardening. Bring the kids for crafting and an empty stomach to sample Idaho food products. Wake up, Boise. Spring is here.
