Someone Pinch Me!

Would someone pinch me please, so I know I am not dreaming. I have been invited by P. Allen Smith to Garden2Blog 2013 at his amazing garden home in Arkansas.

For a garden blogger, this is Mecca!


At this 2-day event in May we will tour area gardens, attend garden workshops, listen to inspiring speakers and just have garden fun!

Allen’s TV shows, books, videos and web presence have inspired me for years, so I feel completely honored to meet him in person! His website is full of garden inspiration, farm chic and lifestyle tips. Allen is dedicated to blurring the lines between indoors and out … my kind of living. Take a look at his blog here.

Another reason I am mega excited is that I will meet so many of my “blogging” friends and my Rose Chat friends.

Chris, The Redneck Rosarian, and I, along with Annie Haven, from Haven Brand Ranch, are the original Rose Chat Crew and this will be the first time we meet “in person.” Yes, we have been doing a weekly internet radio show for more than a year and have worked on the Rose Chat Twitter presence for more than 2 years and we’ve never met. Social media IS shrinking the world!

A huge thanks to Allen and his garden home sponsors for this wonderful opportunity. I can’t wait.

Stay tuned,  I’ll be posting lots and lots of pictures! And, follow along on the Facebook page here.
