Jul 14, 2017
I am really so thrilled about today’s show. It’s the beginning of a three part series about the 2017 Garden Bloggers Fling held in and around Washington DC at the end of this past June. To start off the series, we will be reviewing Day 1 of the 2017 Garden Bloggers Fling. We’ll be sharing highlights from venues like Hillwood, the Franciscan Monastery, and the many gardens along the National Mall including the Mary Livingston Ripley Garden and the Archives of American Gardens.
I’m so pleased that fellow garden bloggers are also here with me to share their thoughts and opinions on Day One. You’ll be hearing the lovely voices of:
Tonya Peele of Plant and Shoot
Dee Nash of Red Dirt Ramblings
Peggy Riccio of Pegplant.com AND
Kathy Jentz of Washington Gardener Magazine - DC Maryland and Virginia Gardening - Cats and Gardens
