21 Feb Tweet-Up at the Northwest Flower and Garden Show
I had an AMAZING Tweet-Up with Twitter friends at the Show! We had a ton of fun checking out our fave displaygardens and discussing all things garden. Some of us are here in the picture. From left to right, please meet @gardenliving, @juliebonnheath, @gardenmentor and @nestinstyle. The picture is missing me, of course. We really missed others who wanted to join us like @arcadia1 (medical procedure) and @joegardener (flew home that day). But separately, I also met with @heblogssheblogs and others. Just missed @katspellman, who did one of our guest posts, as well.
@nestinstyle is a pretty awesome person. Her name is Jayme and she writes Nest in Style blog. Check out her recent interview with @joegardener. There is a lot of in-depth information there about how gardening needs have changed for various generations. In her “other” life, she is in sales. It was great to meet Jayme!
@gardenliving is also pretty cool. She is a garden coach and garden writer and flew from California to be at the show. I totally HEART her twitter avatar, by the way. She writes Garden Fresh Living and has a great post on vermicomposting there. Glad to know that I am not the only one with picky worms. Thanks for flying all that way to be at the show, Theresa! You rock!
@gardenmentor was, true to form, hosting a show garden at the show. Robin from Garden Mentors has also guest- posted for us in the past and I have featured her on other posts as well. Why? Because she is awesome and I love the concept of mentoring in the garden industry. Robin truly does it right and I highly recommend her services. She designs as well and puts a ton of volunteer hours into the industry. Thanks from all of us, Robin!
@juliebonnheath also loves the gardening industry. She grows organic veggies and swears by Oregon sugar-snap peas to feed a sweet tooth. She is a “Green Mom” and serves several “green” clients with her PR & Marketing Services. In addition, she writes for garden publications. She’s pretty cool too but prefers that I focus on the other Twitter friends instead of her so I’m not allowed to say more. (grin) Oh, she did pass on that she joins everyone in good thoughts, crossing fingers and a little prayer that the Show will find a buyer and continue on. “We really need it here in the Northwest,” she said. “I heard today that Point Defiance also recently closed their show too.”
I agree! So please join us in good thoughts ongoing for a BUYER!
By the way, there is a risk that it is the last show so make sure and get your “NW Flower and Garden Show” t-shirt while they last in the lobby. And most of all, have enough FUN to last for a long time.
