The Gesneriad Society Convention blog, odds and ends

Not heading to Seattle?  Vicariously be there via the convention blog at http://gescon12.tumblr.com/. Festivities are July 3-7, 2012.

Plan ahead for July next year in Toronto, and 2014 in Nashville. Details will be forthcoming on The Gesneriad Society's website.

More locally, planning continues for the Mid Atlantic Regional Gesneriad Show in Delaware in September.  The National Capital Area Chapter next meets on September 8, 2012, at the U.S. National Arboretum -- it will be a pre-show prep. meeting.

Looking for something to read?  I can always recommend the latest issue of Gleanings.

And closing out here with a couple of photos from the Garden Party event at The Behnke Nurseries on June 9, 2012.  Here's Harold B. at our table:
