Not this year. This year I'm going to the Denver Botanic Gardens for its 58th annual Plant Sale to make up for more than two decades of son slackerhood. The sale has more than 85,000 rare and unusual plants to choose from, and I'm buying the most beautiful one and mailing it home. The package will probably arrive late, and the plant will most likely be dead after the thousand-mile journey, but hey, it's the pot that counts, right, Mom?
The sale runs today from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and tomorrow from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Gardens, 1005 York Street. Go to www.botanicgardens.org or call 720-865-3500 for more information.
Fri., May 11, 10 a.m.-6 p.m.; Sat., May 12, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
