The Belated Blogoversary Botanical Interests Giveaway

The Belated Blogoversary Botanical Interests Giveaway

Botanical Interests in Colorado was one of the sponsors of our 6th Garden Bloggers Fling (San Francisco, July, 2013). A while ago (4 years of ago), I did a primer on growing vegetables for GalTime, using the info on the Botanical Interests seed packets, and got to do a give-away with their seeds. Since my 5th blogging anniversary was in August, I asked them if they'd sponsor my give-away.

A Pilgrimage to Annie's Annuals

One of our "field trips" on the recent Garden Bloggers Fling (SF, 2013), was to Annie's Annuals in Richmond. The first time I heard about Annie's it was described as a "Gardener's Mecca".  Visiting there is like the antithesis of the big box store nurseries ... they have everything!
