From a distance – in the vicinity of 21,000kms, to be precise – I’ve enjoyed taking part in the first ever Spring Fling. The brainchild of some of Austin’s affable garden bloggers, the Spring Fling was the official meet-up for gardeners who blog the world over.
While it was predominantly, if only, attended by those living in the States, it was certainly an open doors policy to any garden blogger desiring to show up. And I’m sure that many international bloggers are already planning ahead for the ‘inaugural’ to become the ‘annual’. I, myself, am already pained for not being able to make it this year after reading all the wonderful summary posts from the 37 bloggers who attended – a summary of the summary posts can be found here.
So, from the sidelines here in Oz, I can say that I have enjoyed it almost as much as one of the attendees – though being there would have been so much greater.
And there are some serious Kudos in order for Pam – Digging, MSS – Zanthan Gardens, Bonnie – Kiss of Sun and Diana – Sharing Nature’s Garden plus all the other Austin bloggers who shared the organisational burden. What you have created has been awesome in its delivery and I can vouch for many who would love to be there next year – if there is a next year. Hopefully, there will be!
