Excited about the SF Flower & Garden Show

No time to write anything Pulitzer-worthy, so let me just say that I'll be driving up north for the San Francisco Flower and Garden Show on Wednesday and heading home Friday for a King Bee gig.

The show slipped south a bit to the San Mateo Event Center. I'm excited about this big show, especially because it's the last one (unless a new promoter wants to resurrect it). If you're going to be in the bay area, check out this link. Or if you find yourself with a free weekend, come on up.

I'll be posting some blog entries from up there, time permitting. New design ideas, new products, new people - ha cha cha!

Hey: Did I mention that I'm retiring from my 22 year job as city landscape architect for Santa Barbara? The SF show will be a great place to expand the ole network.

I've gone up in the past (missed last year) and have always enjoyed the show. Have a wonderful time!

Wow! Retiring after 22 years, thats quite a big move - I'm sure there's only good things to come...Enjoy the show - looking forward to the design ideas.

Retiring?! What is next on your agenda?

A gardening road trip is the best thing ever!

maybe we might run into one another.
I'm checking the show out on Wednesday too and will also be blogging about it.

Does your retirement mean that the city of santa barbara will be looking to hire a replacement for you ?

I'd apply for that job in a heart beat.
Sell the tiny shack in Marin and head for paradise!!

Deviant D: I'll be at the Garden Writer's Association reception at the Sequoia Hall around 6:30 on Wednesday. I'll also be monitoring my e-mail and blog via my iPhone, so if you need to find me, I'll be around. I'm also there all day Thursday. I'd rather not post my phone number here, but it's at my website -

Thanks Billy,
I'll try to make it to Sequoia Hall but it is going to be an unpredictable day.
It is always like old home week for me when I visit the show.
I've been involved with it since it's 2nd year in one capacity or another : exhibitor, judge, production....
Last year I was a garden exhibitor and had a ball.

Hope that you have a great time.
