Hints Of Asheville

I can see downtown from the parking lot. And is that a UFO in the upper right corner?



The fifth annual garden bloggers fling is coming to Asheville, NC in 2012, a city that recently earned the great distinction of being labeled a Cesspool of Sin by one of our own state senators. It is sure to be a good time.



The planning has begun in earnest and as soon as the ducks are all wired up, the dates for Asheville 2012 The Fling and the hotel will be announced. Hopefully that will be within a week or so.



Making an itinerary of fabulous garden sites to see was oh so easy. It actually required some minor editing. Now all the foot work needs to be done to see if what we want is what you get.



Announcing an itinerary can wait until next year. It is very subject to adjustments at this point.



Three days of garden touring will be planned with plenty of time incorporated to explore our trendy cesspool, socialize and talk garden blogging. Short social overflow events are planned before and after the official touring dates.



In a city filled with art



And gardeners not afraid to walk on the wild side



In a city of four seasons



Asheville 2012 The Fling, you won't want to miss.

A cesspool of sin sounds like fertile ground for garden bloggers. Thanks for getting this huge undertaking underway!

Jean said...

Oh wonderful! Hard to pass up a visit to a cesspool of sin. I'm hoping the dates line up with my other travels.

I've been waiting my entire life for just this event. It will be my first time in Asheville.

And hey...we have streets made of those tiles! They're quickly disappearing, but you can find them if you look hard enough. Awesome.

Can't wait to fling again!

I hope to make this fling. I have been to Asheville before but it was a long time ago. I only saw the Biltmore when I was there. Cesspool of Sin. Hmmmm Sounds like fun to me. I have two friends that were in Asheville this past year. They loved it.

Oh yes! And there will be ice cream...

Diana said...

It sounds great -- some sin, some garden delights -- a great combination. Can't wait!

Layanee said...

Oh, I so hope to be able to make it to Ashville. When I'm bad, I'm better.

I'm told Asheville's tagline is, "If it happens in Asheville, it gets blogged about."

Kylee said...

Oh dear, Jim. Does that mean I have to behave better?

Siria said...

Hi Christopher, Does one need to be a blogger to go? Or can one be a lover of gardens and garden blogs?

I am hoping to swim a few laps in that pool. It is afterall just next door, relatively speaking.
