Five Things: Boston's Gardens & Green Spaces
Also, it's 12/12/12 and more.
1) Boston's Gardens & Green Spaces
From the listing: "Meg Mauckenhoupt, author of 'Boston's Gardens & Green Spaces,' (Union Park Press, 2010), is the featured speaker at the December meeting of the Somerville Garden Club." The work is "an exploration of both the newest green spaces and the parks, botanic gardens, and estates that are a significant part of Boston's history. All nature lovers, garden enthusiasts, and history buffs will enjoy this lecture." It's at 7 p.m. at 167 Holland St.
For those of you into this sort of thing, today is Dec. 12, 2012, or 12/12/12. We won't have another 12/12/12 for another 61.4 million years, or so I'm told.
3) Opening reception in Cambridge
If you feel like venturing into Cambridge this evening, there's an opening reception at the Karen Aqua Gallery for an exhibit called "Light Beings." It's at 5:30 p.m. at 438 Massachusetts Ave.
4) Deck the House
Don't forget to enter our "Deck the House" contest for the chance to win $100,000 for Somerville Public Schools.
Today will be sunny with a high around 42.
