All About African Violets – Episode 3.053 – Changing it Up

Welcome to my Sunroom

Come on in to the Sunroom!

While Illinois has progressed to Phase 4 of its reopening plan, we have seen a recent uptick in cases of COVID-19.  Many other states are now facing what Illinois was facing back in March and April when we were under a stay-at-home order, so please stay home/stay safe, wear a mask when you go out, and keep washing your hands!!

I just realized that I completely missed a podcast episode on the 21st of June, and not only I missed it: NO ONE missed it! This helped me make a decision that I’ve been contemplating for awhile. I have decided to let the podcast Facebook page go dark.  Back in the wayback there was a lot of conversation on our Facebook page, but by the time I rebooted the podcast a couple of years ago, groups were happening, and many new African violet groups had sprung up on FB. That’s where the conversations are happening these days (as they should! :-) ). 

There are multiple options for viewing All About African Violets:  You can subscribe to the podcast directly on the website and also on iTunes/ApplePodcasts. In addition, you can follow the podcast on Instagram and on Pinterest!  I would encourage you to do so, as I will be posting more in both locations over the summer to see how things go in these social media outlets.

Tips and Treasures

I don’t have any treasure for you today, but I was asked a great question by Geneva, about what to do after a plant has bloomed its head off, so we’re going to take another extended look at what’s on the stands.

Let’s jump right in!

A Look at What’s on the Stands

First we’re going to look at some footage from a week or so ago, and then we’ll see today’s usual look!

It was tough for me to do some serious limiting of my collection this past week.

Get the Bail Money Ready!

In 2021 the AVSA’s annual convention will be in Atlanta, Georgia.

If you have photos of your plants and/or growing spaces that you’d like to share for the website, now would be an excellent time to send them in. 

Keep Moving Forward

Thank you for joining me today, and thank you for the star ratings and reviews on iTunes and Facebook, and for the generous donations you have made via Paypal to help keep the podcast going.  I so appreciate this!
