  1. Both 2017 and 2018 look good for me, will be making a concerted effort to cross the pond for them

  2. Ooh Ooh Ooh!!!!!! I just learned about this event, and now I see that next year the fling will be held right in my back yard! I live in Baltimore, about 30 minutes north of DC. Am very much looking forward to growing my blog and becoming more involved in the garden blogging community. Very excited to see this serendipitous event coming up! Thanks to Diana from Digging.com for pointing me in this direction!

    1. So glad you're gonna join us, Jenny. That's Diana from SharingNaturesGarden.blogspot.com.

  3. Do you have dates for Austin yet? I am scheduling things in 2018 already and don't want a conflict!

    1. I added them, Claire. We'll do the official announcement at the DC Fling. But I understand about planning a year in advance.


Thanks for taking the time to comment!
