Spring Fling – Pay for Bayless Garden Tour

UPDATE 4/15:  There are a few spots left, but we are first offering them to Spring Fling attendees that registered too late for the initial mailing.  If we have any spots left after that, they will be available for bloggers’ family and friends.

Are you a garden blogger who is registered for Chicago Spring Fling? Do you want to go on the tour of Rick Bayless’ garden on Saturday, May 30? If so, please pay $12 now via the “Donate” button now to reserve your spot. Both PayPal and credit cards are accepted. Please enter your blog address as indicated on the form so we know who is coming!

If you have any questions, just post a comment below and I will answer it as soon as possible.

If we have any open spaces left after April 15, we will open this up to any of your friends and family who want to come along, but we are currently restricting this to garden bloggers who have already registered for Spring Fling.

      Actually, there is a place on the PayPal page (or should be!) for leaving it, but I have you marked down on our spreadsheet.

    Yep, I have your payment and I’ve updated my spreadsheet. 6 people have paid already!

  4. I got distracted when I was doing it & missed putting in my URL before I hit enter. Mine is http://mcgregorsdaughter.blogspot.com/

  5. I’m in! Thanks for arranging this. I’m really looking forward to touring Rick Bayless’ garden.

  6. Can’t wait! Thank you so much for making this happen.

  7. Hi! Please note that I have signed up for two of us on two separated transactions as there are two people blogging here at Each Little World. Names are Linda Brazill and Mark Golbach. Looking forward to it!

    Linda, I have both your payments and have you both on our list of tour attendees – thanks! I’ve verified that everyone who has commented also has a spot. Considering I’m looking out at a yard full of snow right now, visiting gardens in late May sounds like a dream….

  9. Hi, I am trying to sign up but it is not taking my credit card. Visa.

    I’ll keep trying.

  10. I am all signed in and paid up and looking forward to the tour! I did add the URL at the payment site so let me know if you need anything further.

    Frances and Layanee, I do see both of your payments so you’re set to go on the tour!

  12. Ugh… Paypal and I don’t get along.. which is why it took me until today to make the payment.. but it looks like its gone through so yay!

    Jessica, I do see your payment, so you’re done!

  14. I’m all signed up and really looking forward to it! I’m excited to meet everyone, and I can’t wait to reunite with the awesome folks I met last year!

  15. Let me try for a third time, as the first two seem to have disappeared into the ethernet..


    I forgot to add the urls to the payments (2) for (2) tickets.

    Nancy, your comment got caught in the spam filter overnight – sorry! I do see both your donations, so I will update my spreadsheet accordingly. Anneliese, I see yours too.

  17. Hi,
    I never saw a place to leave a URL so here’s mine:

    Jean, I managed to match your blog up with your contribution anyway, so you’re set for the tour!

  19. Hi, I want to go and possibly bring a friend after the 15th, spots permitting. I cannot get the donate button to respond but count me in! I’ll have cash or visa on the day if I can’t get this dang button to cooperate!

    Cheryl, try going to https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=4305268 – just copy and paste that address, and make sure that you’re on a browser that isn’t blocking http://www.paypal.com. Please see if that would work. I’d really like to collect the money up front because I’ll need to pay for the tour a month in advance.

  21. I don’t know if it worked or not? Can you e-mail me if my $ showed up and registered me? Thanks!


  22. OK, I think my payment went through. Thanks so much for organizing this!

    Rose, I do see your payment, so you’re on the list for the tour!
