SAGBUTT II: The Bloggers Return March 16, 2009

Does this sound like the title of a bad horror movie sequel? (Really, is there any other kind of horror movie sequel?) Maybe so, but it’s also the follow-up to our fun initial meeting of Seattle-Area Garden Bloggers United to Talk!

This time around, Paula of Petunia’s Garden graciously organized a spot for an afternoon of yakking, snacking, and seed-swapping, along with a special International guest blogger, Matron of Down On The Allottment from the UK. Please see Paula’s post here for all the info, and feel free to leave an RSVP so she has a vague idea of how many folks might be there.

If you live within driving distance and have a garden blog (or if you’re even just considering starting one), please join us. It’s a great group of people and I think we all came away last time, or at least I did, with new knowledge, fun connections, and even some great swag (black pussy willows and jute coffee bags).

Don’t be shy, come on along. And if you’re too far out of range to attend, you can always plan a visit to Seattle for one of our future meet-ups and be our next honored guest!

    With an acronym like SAGBUTT, I can tell you all must have a great sense of humor! Have fun!

    I am so in need of good garden chatter! Looking forward to it for sure. Great photos of all the color you’ve got going on (previous post). I’ve been unable to read in as much as I like and now I’m playing catchup.

  3. Catherine Says:

    I’m really looking forward to it. I hope to be able to dig up some of my baby hellebores to share since I don’t have many seeds.

  4. Paula Says:

    Love the worm picking party photo! Maybe we’re not ready to do that yet. Course if summer never arrives, we won’t have to worry. See you soon. Paula
