I love Chicago. I love gardening. I love blogging. So how do you think I feel about going to Chicago May 29-31 for Spring Fling to spend the weekend with garden bloggers from all over the country? I'm EXCITED!
There's a full schedule planned, visiting gardens, talking gardening and blogging with people that I've never met in person, yet I feel like I know them from reading their blogs. Though my mom isn't a blogger, she reads many of them and when we talk about gardens and blogs and I mention this blogger or that one, she knows who I'm talking about. She'll be riding shotgun with me on the trip.
Last year, the first Spring Fling was held in Austin, Texas, and I dearly wanted to attend that one, but it just couldn't be worked into the budget. I was thrilled when I found out it was going to be in Chicago this year. I'm familiar with Chicago, since I've been there many times, and it's just a few hours away by car.
The Chicago Bloggers have a great site with all the details about Spring Fling 2009, including information about the schedule, lodging, and a list of the bloggers that will be attending. All the details will be updated as needed, so if you're thinking of going, be sure to get registered and stay on top of things by visiting and bookmarking their site.
