It is almost garden show season. What does that mean? Stuff to buy. Display gardens to look at. Flower arrangements to judge. And not just that, but: Tickets to buy. Places to park. Food to eat.
We want to hear about all of it. We're quite sure that many of you will be heading out to garden shows in the coming weeks (I'll be at the Portland and San Francisco shows, and Michele will be at the Chicago show, for starters), and we would love to post, repost, or otherwise link to your reports from the shows. Video? Audio? Slide shows? Tweets? Sonnets? Whatever. If you can get it to us, we'll do our best to get it out there.
And seriously, we want to hear about everything, not just the highlights. Was parking a nightmare? Was the food appropriate for a garden crowd, or was it all ball park franks? Do you have a favorite bar nearby you recommend for a post-show cocktail? Do tell!
Most of you already know a million different ways to get in touch with us, from posting a comment here to sending a note via Twitter or Facebook, but here's a direct route: send a note to amy at amystewart dot com with your garden show reports. To make this easier, I'll assume that anything you send is OK to post (pictures, text, whatever) with a link to you–unless you specifically tell me otherwise. (Yes, anonymous tipsters are welcome, too!)
To be honest, I'm looking forward to getting to a big city to see anything, even if it's just a yellow wheelbarrow. Whatever. I'm ready. I'm there.
