Heading North

Chicago here I come. Never been there either unless you count a runway. It took a while to quit waffling, but at some point the decision was made to carpe some diem. The garden bloggers Chicago Spring Fling is the destination. Bits of Michigan before and after the Chicago bash will be slipped in too.



The resident gardeners will be left to handle all the chores while I am gone. I think there is even a plan in the works to try and coax Collar inside the house for some quality bonding time.

Pam and Lisa it should be great fun and it will be so nice to meet you both in person. The resident gardeners and I had a wonderful visit and garden tour with Siria and her husband yesterday. Garden bloggers and readers are the best.

See you in Chicago, Christopher! This should be a fun Spring Fling. I can hardly believe I've been talked into leaving my garden in May, of all months.

I'll see you in Chicago too. I waffled until the last minute, partly to see how much testosterone was going to added to the mix. And I see you committed even after I did. The other part was debating on whether to give up a spring weekend in the garden.

Safe travels Christopher! I look forward to reading all about the Spring Fling and your travels. Thanks for a great time yesterday!

Carol I was a little sad leaving the garden too, but it's only for a week and it has been raining like crazy.

Jim the tide of estrogen will swamp the testosterone levels, but what could be wrong with scores of lovely women doting over a few select men for a weekend?

Lola so far so good. Made it to Michigan just fine.

Siria we all had a great visit. The resident gardeners do enjoy showing off their pride and joy, (not me)and a brief break from their hermitage.
