Rochester, NY and San Francisco Bay Area–here I go!

And it's time for another mad dash through questionable weather!  (Last week's run to San Francisco for the garden show involved all the roads in and out of Humboldt County getting shut down due to 3 inches of snow.  I know, I know, we Californians are such wimps.)

Anyway, off I go to Rochester, NY, where I will be speaking on Flower Confidential at Nazareth College on Thursday.  I also get to spend 3 hours that day talking to science teachers about how to use earthworms in the classroom!  Fabulous.

And then–back to the Bay Area for a bunch of stuff, including (drum roll):

Wicked plants conservatory The opening of the Wicked Plants exhibit at the Conservatory of Flowers in Golden Gate Park!   I haven't seen the exhibit yet, but opening day is next Thursday, April 7, and I'll be there.  Details here, and more on upcoming events here, including a night of drinking called Plants Behind Bars (get it?), an event with garden murder mystery writer Rosemary Harris, and a lecture I'll do there on June 1.

Also on Thursday, April 7 at 6:30 PM, I'll be speaking on Wicked Plants at an event in Marin sponsored by the Marin Master Gardeners.

On Friday, April 8 at 2 PM, I'll be at Filoli, again on Wicked Plants.

And on Saturday, April 9 I'm in Sacramento at the California State Flower, Food, & Garden Show, speaking on Wicked Bugs at noon and on earthworms at 4 PM.

Then off to Annie's Annuals on Sunday, April 10, where I'll talk about Wicked Plants at 11, and generally enjoy the wonderfulness that is a spring party at Annie's.  They've promised me I can stuff my car full of plants, but I don't think they know how many plants a person can stuff in a compact rental car!  I vow to restrain myself.

If you're out and about when any of this is happening, I do very much hope to see you there.
