I'm part of a group of Chicagoland area garden bloggers who have been planning a garden blogger meetup this May 29th-31st. We're inviting all garden bloggers across the globe to come and participate in Chicago Spring Fling. We'll be showing off several of Chicago's great parks and attractions talking about photography, blogging and just getting to know each other. Consider this my personal invitation to you if I don't make it to your garden blog and leave you a comment about this event. Being a frugal gardener myself I know that a trip like this can be costly but the tours of the parks are free, you'll pay for your own lodging and meals.
Like I said, all garden bloggers are invited and I'd really like the opportunity to meet all of you who leave comments and and even those of you who don't. In particular any male garden bloggers because so far I'm the only guy I know who will be attending. So, guys how about some representation? It should be fun and we're working on lining up some sponsors to provide us with some items for participants. So far we have a couple of sponsors and Proven Winners is stepping up to the plate with a great gift for garden bloggers who participate. If you know of any companies or organizations who would be willing to sponsor our event and provide some gifts don't hesitate to contact me or pass on this information to them. I'll be doing a roundup post of our sponsors here on my gardening blog. So if you send me press releases or solicitations to write about your product this is your lucky day!

Sorry I haven't kept up with the comments here, I've been busy working on Chicago Spring Fling but I'll be replying and visiting your garden blogs soon or at odd hours of the night.
