It’s not too late


You can still register for this year’s bloggers’ get-together. The sixth annual Garden Bloggers Fling in San Francisco happens June 28-30; its itinerary includes tours of private gardens (a sample above), tours of public spaces like Filoli and the Conservatory of Flowers, a photography workshop with Saxon Holt, and much more—including, of course the rare opportunity to socialize with fellow bloggers from across the country and beyond.

No seminars, no ceremonies—just gardens, food, drink, and fun.

I’ll be there; hope to see many of you!

Elizabeth Licata has been a regular writer for  Garden Rant since 2007, after contributing a guest rant about the overuse of American flags in front gardens. She lives and gardens in Buffalo, N.Y., which, far from the frozen wasteland many assume it to be, is a lush paradise of gardens, historic architecture, galleries, museums, theaters, and fun. As editor of Buffalo Spree magazine,  Licata helps keep Western New Yorkers apprised about what is happening in their region. She is also a freelance writer and art curator, who’s been published in Fine Gardening, Horticulture, ArtNews, Art in America, the Village Voice, and many other publications. She does regular radio segments for the local NPR affiliate, WBFO.

Licata is involved with Garden Walk Buffalo, the largest free garden tour in the US and possibly the world, and has written the text for a book about Garden Walk. She has also written and edited several art-related books. Contact Elizabeth: ealicata at


  1. I am so looking forward to talking with some of the bloggers I’ve read for years or gotten to know somewhat through Facebook but have never met face to face. The Internet is great but it doesn’t beat real human contact (and gardens and cocktails)!
