In today’s show, I’m continuing my three part series about the 2017 Garden Bloggers Fling held in and around Washington DC. at the end of this past June. We will be reviewing Day 2 of the 2017 Garden Bloggers Fling. On this day, we saw gardens in the suburbs of DC area, so we’ll be talking about the wonderful private gardens in areas like Bethesda, Arlington, Tyson’s Corner and Great Falls. Some of these gardens are from private homeowners with a passion for gardening, and others were the personal gardens created by professional designers We also stopped at Brookside Gardens, a park in Montgomery County. I’ll be joined by fellow garden bloggers:

Beth Billstrom (SG535) of More Than Oregano

Jen McGuinness (SG539 SG538 SG534) of Frau Zinnie AND

Tracy Blevins of Plants Map
