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.

About the Author

Kathy Purdy is a colchicum evangelist, converting unsuspecting gardeners into colchicophiles. She would be delighted to speak to your group about colchicums or other gardening topics. Kathy’s been writing since 4th grade, gardening since high school, and blogging since 2002.

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.

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
