My blogging vacation is over, and I have an exciting announcement to make.
Blogging friend Judy—from New England Garden and Thread—and I are planning a blogging get-together on Thursday, June 15th at beautiful Bedrock Gardens in Lee, New Hampshire. We hope that blogging friends who live in the area will put that date on the calendar and join us.
We chose Bedrock Gardens because it is within driving distance for many blogging friends in Northern New England. (Bedrock Gardens is about two hours from where I live in central Maine.) Also, I have to admit that after reading about Bedrock Gardens on Judy’s blog, I have been very keen to see this garden.
Admission to the garden is $15, and Judy has arranged for us to have a free tour, which starts at 10:30. There is plenty of parking at Bedrock Gardens as well as restrooms. There is also plenty of room for us to bring chairs and have a bag lunch after the tour is done.
The get-together and tour will happen even if there is a light drizzle. If the weather forecast is for pouring rain, the tour will be canceled, but we will meet at a local restaurant for lunch and a chat.
If you are interested in coming, please let me know in the comments, and I will get back to you.
Hope to see those of you who are within driving distance on Thursday, June 15th at Bedrock Gardens in Lee, New Hampshire.

June 15 is going to be a really good day in the garden for sure.
Sure is! Can’t wait.
I wish you well for this delightful initiative
Thanks, Derrick. What fun! Too bad you’re all the way across the pond.
Oh that sounds like SO MUCH FUN!!!!!
So wish you lived close enough to come!
For a brief moment I considered it…road trip!
What a thrill that would be! Plenty of places to stay in the Portsmouth area. Just saying…
Welcome back, Laurie! And your blogging tour sounds like so much fun! Sadly, I don’t live within your area, but I’ll be waiting eagerly to read your account of the get-together.
Thanks, Debbie! Sure wish you lived closer.
What a grand idea! I too look forward to your report on the get-together 🙂 🙂
I will be taking lots of pictures!
That sounds like fun Laurie, wishing you the finest of days for your get-together! 🌞
Oooh, tempting! Bit of a jaunt for a day trip for me. Too bad my BIL moved from eastern NH last fall… I could have overnighted there.
Well, darn! I was hoping it would be a doable day trip for you. Where would it have to be for it to be doable for you? Would half an hour south make any difference? That would make it 2 and half hours for me, which is fine. Anyway, for future gatherings.
I’ll put on my thinking cap… I might see if I work something out. 🙂
Fingers and toes crossed!
How lovely! What a great idea and hope the weather holds.
Thanks! In northern New England, the weather can be very unpredictable.
What a great idea. I wish I was closer.
Would love to meet you!
I just can’t get a bus that will suit. Ah well.
Well, darn! No trains either.
Sounds wonderful and wish I lived closer!!! Looking forward to reading about the wonderful day!🙂
I wish you lived closer, too!
I’d love to meet up with all of you, what a great idea!
Take some photos along the way!
I so wish you could meet up with us. Will be sure to take lots of photos.
Looking forward to reading all about the blogging get-together.
I almost wish I lived in America! Have a great time.
Right? Or you had a Book of Everything to whisk you here!
Oooo that would be good!
Ooh, that sounds like fun! I looked up how long it would take to get there from here and found out 22hrs 21 mins driving or 6 days bicycling. How many hours they would expect us to cycle per day, do you think? I’ll actually be home by then. I know you’ll have a wonderful time.
Oh, how I wish you were closer! I agree with you that six days bicycling sounds a tad optimistic. 😉
This sounds like a wonderful plan, Laurie, and I hope the weather will cooperate.
Too bad I don’t live within (reasonable) driving distance! 😊
Right? How I would love to meet you in person.
Thank you, Laurie, same here. One of these days, maybe. 😊
Interesting concept. Writing/Blogging often seems like a solitary endeavor, with occasional affirmation when folks, read (often anonymous Views), Like, are sporadically comment. I’ll be curious to read out the event goes. Having been on the road since mid-March, I’ll be enjoying June back home in a contest with the garden to see who gets the upper hand. – Oscar
Thanks, Oscar! Watch out for that garden.
The wonderful couple who founded this place and recently created the independent organization are friends of ours. Am passing the word about your post.
Thanks so much! Will you be able to come? I was thinking of you when we chose the location.
Awww, thank you. Not this time. Hope you will blog about it.
Darn! Yes, maybe next time.
Oh, wow – so excited for you, Laurie! Have a blast.
I’ve loved my own blogging get togethers so I’ve no doubt you’ll have a blast. I can’t wait for the ensuing posts.
Thanks so much! Wish you could be there.
Sounds like it will be a great day out, Laurie. I’m looking forward to hearing about it and seeing some pictures.
Thanks! So looking forward to the gathering.
I’m glad you had a good break, Laurie, and what fun to get together with Northern New England Bloggers. It’s so fun to meet people in person. Be sure to take a few photos to share!
Will do! Wish you could join us.
If I didn’t live 3000 miles away, I would. Lol
A little too far. 😉
I’d be there if I could, but given the distance I’ll have to pass this year!. Hope you have a great day
Wish you didn’t live so far away.
Wow! I am sure you will have great time. Looking forward to your blog post about it.
Oh my goodness, wouldn’t I just love to join you! If only we were a little nearer to each other.
Oh, Ju-Lyn, I so wish you could join us. Would love to meet you in person.
Maybe one day you will make it to my part of the world, or I to yours!
Fingers and toes crossed!
