In other words, gardeners are generally, calm, nice, and giving people.
|The first fling was in 2008 in Austin, Texas|
Gardeners automatically have a lot in common and can just start talking about gardening and plants, wherever they gather.
|The second fling was in Chicago in 2009.|
This common love of gardening is a bond, even amongst strangers.
|For the third fling, we gathered in Buffalo, NY.|
Friendships have been made quickly at each fling, over one plant or another.
|The last fling was in Seattle, Washington|
At every fling, gardeners find kindred spirits and leave looking forward to meeting them again at the next fling.
The next garden bloggers' fling will be in May in Asheville, North Carolina. Do you have a garden blog? Are you coming?
(All quotes are from a passage in The Garden that I Love by Alfred Austin, 1894. It's amazing how the types of friendships that gardeners have amongst each other haven't really changed in over 100 years.)
