Look Out Arkansas, Here I Come! Garden2Blog 2013

I am very excited to share that in just under 10 days I will join an select group of garden bloggers in Little Rock for Garden2Blog 2013.

Garden 2 Blog 2013

Garden 2 Blog 2013

Each year garden designer and lifestyle expert P. Allen Smith assembles a group of bloggers at his beautiful home for two days of gardening, learning, laughter and good growing fun with some of the garden bloggers I have come to know and admire such as Carolyn Binder of Cowlick Cottage Farm, The SeedKeeper Girls & the fine folks at Star Roses & Plants just to name a few.

Many of you who listen to Rose Chat Radio may not know that though we host this popular show on-air together, Teresa Byington and I have never actually met. Nor have I met Annie Haven, of Haven Brand Soil Conditioners. It seems that this will be our year! We are all on the invite list and will meet in person.

We will tour gardens, lunch at the Governor’s Mansion,  and take an in-depth look at Moss Mountain Farm; Allen’s 600 acre sustainable farm as well as participate in a day of intensive workshops with topics ranging from Soil to of course, roses!

I am particularly excited to see the rose garden Allen designed. Here is a video clip on the rose garden dedication ceremony from 2012.  This garden should be in her flush during our visit and I can’t wait to see it.

I’ll have my trusty camera phone with me to snap lots of pictures and I can’t wait to share this adventure with everyone.
