Imagine in one weekend: a tasty fajita lunch with Tom Spencer, a Texas-sized BBQ dinner, world-class gardens and garden-themed door prizes, happy hours with passionate gardeners/bloggers, the Ladybird Johnson Wildflower Center, a tour of Natural Gardener Nursery, and MORE. And all that in April when the bluebonnets are blooming. My god, who could resist?
Yes, the Texans have worn us down. Elizabeth and I will be there, absolutely, and we ALL would if we could. But at least two of us will be experiencing gardening and partying Texas-style, a worthy addition to our new book – Gardeners Partying Around the World. Okay, I just made that up but from what we can tell about The County Line, the gang could be getting down. (And we have this inside dirt from Amy, who visited the Austin gardenbloggers on her recent book tour: Prepare to party!)
My only question: Does The County Line have music and room for some two-stepping? And if it does, can we drag Tom along? Otherwise poor Bill from Prairie Point’s got a whole lot of dancing to do.
Just LOOK at the cool weekend in store for us April 4 and 5 in the coolest city in Texas (Is there any competition?) And man, we’re blown away by the great job our friends in Austin are doing making it all happen for us. Be there, y’all!
