Thanks From Flora

Thanks From Flora

I decided to say “Howdy” with this post because I am choosing to be optimistic that a buyer will still be found for the Northwest Flower and Garden Show. And of course, I am hopeful that the new owner will continue the blog as it has been an incredible resource for so many people.

If not however, this will be my last post.

I’m sure that I will turn up in the gardening industry somewhere. Gardening is ingrained in me, as you know. Even so, I will miss this opportunity for now to connect with you and hope that you continue to garden with that passion in your heart.

I want to say thank you to my direct bosses (whom I can’t name here) for giving me the opportunity to be a part of this wonderful show as the blogger. I also want to thank Duane Kelly, Erina, Janet, Cyle and the whole team at the show that has worked so hard to bring us wonderful flower and garden shows. You all totally rock!

Thanks to the many artists, vendors, designers and speakers who make the flower and garden show what it is every year.  Your continued patronage and support of the show means so much! Without you, there of course would not have been a show.

Thank you to those who attend the show, enjoy the seminars and gaze in awe at the show gardens. Your purchases from the vendors is also appreciated.

Thank you most of all to my awesome readers! It has been a joy spending so much time with you. Thanks for the comments, encouragement and muse. You guys are the best!

As always, I am off to my garden! See you soon!

    Hi Flora!

    I will keep my fingers crossed that a buyer will step in and take up the Northwest Flower & Garden Show.

    Thank you again for the opportunity to write a guest blog post for the 2008 NWF&GS, it was fun!

    This year I was too late to participate, but I did get a Media invitation to come on the Tuesday before the 2009 opening and write up a post on Rain City Guide:

    Best Wishes Flora, and I hope that I run into you somewhere in the blogosphere!

    Hi again Flora,

    I just heard last night on KOMO news that there was someone interested in the NWF&GS so it was likely that it would be happening again for 2010.

    I hope so!

    Hope your garden is flourishing in all the sunshine we have been having since mid-May!

    I agree with gardenmentor. This is such a good blog and it would be nice to get it back on track. There is a lot of great information perfect for a floral course.

    Hi Everybody,

    I saw in the paper this past weekend that the Flower and Garden Show is scheduled for February 3-7, 2010. That’s wonderful!! With the temps being in the teens, it seems so far off to be thinking of gardening right now!! Can’t wait for spring.

    Would love to hear about what’s scheduled for the show.
