Fall 2015 African Violet Show Season!

YAY it's that time of year! Cooler weather, pumpkin spice flavored everything, and FALL AFRICAN VIOLET SHOWS!

To find shows near (or near-ish) you in the USA (and even Canada, eh?) be sure to check out the "Events" page on the AVSA website, OR look for the show postings on the AVSA Facebook page! I try and get them done on the facebook page (with my awesome assistant Peggy Barber) a couple weeks ahead of time, so we can give people time to plan.

Sadly because of my new work schedule and an upcoming surgery, I don't see myself being able to attend any shows this year. But I'll just have to hope I can next year and enjoy it doubly, to make up for this wasted year!

Don't be too freaked out/socially anxious to get yourself out to one if you can--Even if you're a total n00b and aren't entering any plants. Shows are a great place to network and geek out with other African violet growers, buy plants & supplies, learn stuff, and of course be dazzled by the eye-candy of the perfectly grown show displays. Seriously, it's mind-blowing.

If you think this is nice, your eyes might actually melt when you go to a show in-person.
