Well, bless my heart




Imagine my surprise to find that I'm a finalist in the category of Best Texas Blog in Blotanical's 2009 Awards. Let me tell you something, people, Texas has some mighty fine garden bloggers, so I am honored and humbled to be nominated. The other finalists are: Digging, Aunt Debbie's Gardens, Zanthan Gardens, and Great Stems. Any one of them ought to beat the socks plain off me, and rightly so.

I also made the cut on "Best Drought Tolerant Blog," where I am again in fine company: Digging, The Gardens of Petersonville, Town Mouse and Country Mouse, and Lost in the Landscape. A thorough sock-beating applies here, too.

A lot of my personal favorites made the list in other categories, and I've been busy wearing out my fingers casting my vote for them.

Y'all should get on over there and check them all out. And do a little voting while you're at it. You don't have to vote for me, but you do have to be registered with Blotanical if you are not already. It's easy to do and well worth the trouble. Click on this link to find out more about the awards. Click on this link to register at Blotanical. You can add your own blog there, or simply sign up as a "Blotanist." Look for the link at the top of the Blog Directory page, under the countdown clock for the awards.

And don't hurt your fingers pushing all those little radio buttons.

  7. Well, I voted for you in "Best Texas" (and for Digging in a different category, I do like you both).

    And I'm abstaining in Drought Tolerant, conflict of interest ;->
    It's been really fun to discover some new blogs. Will make for nice winter reading.

    Good luck!

  18. Congrats to you, Susan. I enjoyed your blog early on, when we first met last Nov! It's been a while since I've been over to see you! Looks like you've picked up your blogging pace, and I've kind of slowed down with mine. I'm working on getting back up to speed with my posting, and visiting old friends once again! I wish you well in the Blot. awards! I wasn't going to write a post about this either, but everywhere I looked it seemed the nominees were writing posts...so I finally did, too...mainly so I didn't miss a chance to say thank you to people who took the time to nominate me.
