On March 23 you have a chance to hear a famous British writer talk about her most favorite flowers, right here in Seattle. Come see Anna Pavord speak on the luxuriance of bulbs and support the Center for Urban Horticulture at the same time.
If Anna Pavord's name sounds familiar, it's because she writes for that beautiful British Broadcasting mag Gardens Illustrated and she wrote the best-selling book "The Tulip: The Story of a Flower That Has Made Men Mad."
“Of all the different plants in the world,” says Pavord, “bulbs intrigue me the most... Bulbs are not just a spring thing. In this talk I introduce some of my favourites and suggest how they might be used in a garden.”
Pavord lives and gardens in Dorset, England. At 7 p.m. on Tuesday, March 23 she'll be speaking at CUH, 3501 N.E. 41st Street. Admission is $15. You can pay at the door or register in advance to save your seat. To sign up or seek more information, contact Jean Robins at 206-685-8033 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
