 It's spring. Around here, that means Primavera.

You're invited!

I'm told this pretty poster is untweetable. How's this?

Saturday, March 19th, 11am-? Farnsworth Park, Altadena
Bloggers, families, friends & groupies welcome!
bring a dish, utensils or paper goods to share
or call 626-791-5327

I imagine that's more than 140 characters. I'll let you pick what to abbreviate. We'll have plenty of characters at the picnic, no abbreviations necessary.

Please spread the word (there's a little button below). I hope to see you there.

Tweetable or not, that is a fine flier... wish that I could be there to meet all of you "characters" and friends.


Susan Campisi said...

My first Primavera - I'm looking forward to it.

Petrea said...

Many thanks to the Altadena bloggers for this annual affair. I look forward to it, too. Wish you could come, Genie. Maybe you could start one in your area!

Bellis said...

Love the poster - it's a Poussin painting, "Et in Arcadia Ego," which means "And in Arcadia, I," or "Even I am an Arcadian." I think we'd all like to forget about Arcadia, so it's a good thing it's being held in Altadena.

Sadly I won't be able to attend this year. It's a fun get-together and we're well fed. Thanks for organizing it, Altadena Bloggers.

Vanda said...

Woohoo! Sign me up! What should I bring? ;)

The Altadena Bloggers don't do much more than set the table. Sorry we'll miss you, Bellis, but it will be great to see you there, Susan.

Petrea said...

Ha! If Bellis can't be there we'll just have to reschedule.

Vanda, do we really need to answer that question?

Karin, soon Susan will be an Altadena blogger and you'll have extra help.

Margaret said...

Alas, I don't think I can make it.

Sarah said...

It was the day of saying hello to my dear friends on their blogs :)

I did not know Petrea...Blogspot is fully filtered in Iran and now I accessed it by proxy!!!

(They are so...)

Bellis said...

My husband's trying to visit Iran in April - hope all is well there by then. My sympathies, Sarah.

Petrea said...

Well, Margaret, we'll just have to do it twice.

Sarah, as I said in my email I'm thinking of you and sending good energy. Be careful and stay in touch when you can. Thank you for coming by to comment.

Bellis, I hope Richard will only go if it's safe to do so. I would love to go to Iran but have never felt it was safe.

I'll be there! No bells, though.

Virginia said...

I have my fingers crossed that I'll be right there. I"m bringing deviled eggs if that's ok. Do ya'll eat deviled eggs? I"m guessing no. Maybe I'd better be hunting up something with tofu........

Petrea said...

Patrizzi, PIO, it will be wonderful to hang out with you, bells or no bells.

Yes Virginia,we all eat deviled eggs. You'll have to bring a lot of them.
