I've added another widget at the left -- a badge that contains a link that will take you to a webpage with information about the Garden Bloggers' Annual Fling -- basically a four-day get-together for gardeners across the world that will take place right here in Seattle this year, from July 22-25.
I don't know yet what specifically will be on the agenda, but I read about the one in Buffalo last year on a lot of blogs, and it sounded like everyone had a blast. According to the webpage, "we'll tour glorious gardens, savor delicious farm-to-table dining, and immerse ourselves in one of the most garden-friendly climates Mother Nature has ever bestowed."
To get a feel for what happened at last year's Fling in Buffalo, you can go here.
I live about 30 miles from Seattle, and I plan to be there! I'm looking forward to meeting some great gardeners (and garden writers), eating some great food, and seeing some beautiful gardens. July is dream time in Seattle, the skies should be blue, the weather should be warm, but probably not unbearable.
Be there or be square!
