I'll Be Flinging


Off to the Garden Blogger's Fling in Portland, Oregon.  My sister's whole crew will be here to house, koi, and Samoyed sit. 
Bursera species:

The Fling is three days of non-stop garden tours,  nursery visits, and intensive plant-yakking--ahem--botanical discussions.

I'll leave the blog and the computer alone for a few days.

    1. A great plant--don't understand why it isn't more popular. Will be great to see you again, Jane!

    1. I wish I knew what species the Bursera is--apparently there are a bunch of natural hybrids so it can be hard to tell.

  6. Did you get the pot in the 2nd photo at the South Coast garden show this past May? It looks similar in style to one I picked up. I wish I'd bought more.

    Have a great time at the Fling! I look forward to seeing your posts upon your return.

    1. I got the pot at the Huntington C&S show two or three years ago. My nephew said it looked like bark beetle trails in pine trees. Hey! I think I've got him indoctrinated as a future gardener!

    1. 15 gardens and a publishing house plus a banquet, over three days via buses with free plants, purchased plants, prizes, traffic jams, 97F weather and rain--d'ya think that had anything to do with it? We did manage to chat a bit, but I never found time to properly introduce myself!

      Wasn't it fun? I had a blast! :^)
