Garden Bloggers Spring Fling 2008

Just 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.
Now, the digging and dividing of perennials, the general autumn cleanup and the planting of spring bulbs are all an act of faith. One carries on before the altar of delayed gratification, until the ground freezes and you can’t do any more other than refill the bird feeder and gaze through the window, waiting for the snow. . . . Meanwhile, it helps to think of yourself as a pear tree or a tulip. You will blossom spectacularly in the spring, but only after the required period of chilling.
