Blogger Fling Here We Come!!

Martin Webster of Burnsville, NC
Suzi and I leave for our east coast road trip tomorrow with the end destination being Asheville, NC for the 2012 Garden Blogger Fling.

Asheville 2011
Now, while this isn't our first mother-daughter trip to Asheville, it IS my first blogger fling, and I am stoked to meet new people and participate in lively garden and blogging discussions.

Besides all the new people Im excited to meet, there are those I am SO excited to see again - 
Kylee of Our Little Acre and her lovely mamma, Louise, 
Barbara Wise, author of Container Gardening for All Seasons and Susan Harris of Garden Rant!! 

Our itinerary plans to be a most lovely weekend.  We will tour beautiful local gardens, The North Carolina Arboretum and BB Barnes Nursery.  But, what I am really excited about is the tour of  Biltmore Estate Gardens and Conservancy.  

I know, you say, "But you've been there!" AH ha!  So I have, but Christopher C has set us up right:

Biltmore Estate and Gardens
"When we first enter the estate a staff gardener will join each bus who will be able to give a brief historic overview about Biltmore and Frederick Law Olmsted's impact on the development of the grounds and the forest as we drive the three miles to the gardens. Each attendee will be given a copy of the original 1895 guide map which shows the original planting plans."

And all of this is with people who love digging in the dirt, could I ask for more?!

Follow along via our Twitter accounts as we will be posting photos, video and more!!  

See y'all in Asheville!
