Here we go again. I’m recommending another blogger to you and it’s not even ‘Favorites on the Fifth’, my regular day for doing so. I must admit I haven’t followed Kiss My Aster‘s author Amanda Thomsen, but I am intrigued by anyone who can get a gardening book published in today’s heading-to-paperless society. Amanda will be speaking at the Southtown Dahlia Club’s meeting on January 27th, and I’m very excited to be going. Mike and I usually attend the meetings for the Central States Dahlia Society, especially since he is now President. We’re going to accept Southtown’s gracious invitation to attend their meeting, and you are welcome as well.
Here is what Southtown Dahlia Club has to say about the meeting:
January Guest Speaker: “Kiss My Aster” Blogger, Amanda Thomsen
Nationally renowned garden blogger Amanda Thomsen will entertain us with a light hearted talk about designing an outdoor space that is exactly what you want.
Amanda is currently booked for a national speaking tour that includes the renowned Boston Garden Show in March 2013. Amanda’s much anticipated book “Kiss My Aster: A Graphic Guide to Creating a Fantastic Yard Totally Tailored to You” was just released in January 2013.
Amanda will give us a preview of her tour speech and will accept questions from the audience as to how we can adapt Dahlias into our landscape. Please plan on joining us for this humorous talk about outdoor landscape choices and ask your gardening friends to share in the laughs.
Additionally, Southtown Dahlia Club member, Corny Morgan, will give a PowerPoint demonstration showing New Dahlia Introductions from the 2012 season. 2012 introductions are eligible for a special award at our 2013 Show. Choosing show quality dahlia varieties will be a priority at this meeting.
Southtown Dahlia Club meetings are held the 4th Sunday of the month unless exceptions are noted. Meetings are held at the Crestwood Civic Center 14025 S. Kostner, Crestwood, IL 60445 from 1 pm until 3:30 pm.
