I arrived home just after midnight this morning from five days in Chicago attending the Garden Bloggers' Spring Fling. (It's normal to wander around the dark garden with a flashlight trying to see what bloomed during one's absence, right?!) It was fun and interesting meeting people in person, both old and new friends. I arrived a day early and stayed a day late, and I saw so many wonderful places and ate such great food. Special thanks to Linda, Mr Brown Thumb, Rachel, and Gina for being such wonderful hosts and for planning our events.
I'm a little worn out from all the fun, so please excuse the lack of photo descriptions.
