Enormous thanks to Karl Gercens of Longwood Gardens for hosting the Philadelphia Area Fling September 21-24 and putting together such an incredible lineup of gardens, events, and community for us in America’s Garden Capital! Around 100 garden bloggers, Instagrammers, YouTubers, and others sharing about gardening online spent 3.5 days touring private and public gardens outside of Philadelphia. Even Tropical Storm Ophelia couldn't keep us from smiling, as you can see in our group photo at Swarthmore College.
If you joined us on the Fling this year, we'd love to read your blog posts about it. So would the tour’s garden owners, sponsors, and the gardening public. To help us find your posts as you publish over the weeks and months ahead, please share your links on our official Facebook page with hashtag #gbfling2023, and/or share the URL in the comments below. We'll try to keep this page updated with links as we receive them, with the latest at top.
