Garden Bloggers Spring Fling 2008

Garden Bloggers Spring Fling 2008Just in case you’ve been hibernating and only now have begun to amble around the garden blog community, the Austin garden bloggers are organizing a meet-up for April 5, 2008. It will be a chance to solidify the friendships that have formed over the internet, enjoying some great gardens and Texas hospitality.

As I understand it, there are currently 24 garden-bloggers expected. If you’re sitting on the fence, perhaps my tips on finding cheap airfare will help. I couldn’t have made it myself without some generous gifts. I hope you’ll be able to join us.

In the end, this may be the most important thing about frost: Frost slows us down. In spring, it tempers our eagerness. In fall, it brings closure and rest. In our gotta-go world–where every nanosecond seems to count–slowness can be a great gift. So rather than see Jack Frost as an adversary, you could choose to greet him as a friend.

Oh wish I could go but will want to hear all about it. Unless I can just skip town and go. How to explain were I’ve been. Hmm.

Kathy and Dee, we can’t wait to see you at the Spring Fling. Thanks for the publicity, Kathy, and for your guest post on how to find good deals on airline tickets.

I went to the link you provided, and I was amazed at the difference in airfares for the same flights. I am going to try to use my points, but I’ll know in 24 hours if they have anything. Otherwise, I’ll be booking a flight thru the other system. I think I’m going to rent a car. In fact, I thought about making the eight hour drive so that I could bring home some plants, but I think I want to fly. I can do it cheaper. Thanks. Dee
