|From In the Garden|
I wasn't sure if I'd write this post or not, but I think I'd be remiss if I did not personally thank every single person who voted for this blog and blogger in the Blotanical awards nominations! Plus the fact that most other nominated bloggers (not all mind you but just look at my blogroll) have already posted their posts about the nominations helped to make up my mind to go ahead and post. This is the only way I know how to thank you-THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!! And to let all of the readers of this blog know about the awards who may not be members of Blotanical. Blotanical is a directory of garden blogs that this blog has been a part of for nearly two years. There are over 1500 garden blogs registered at the directory. We are ever so excited to be nominated in any award categories-let alone four categories! So to say this small team here-and especially me and our group of commenters is MOST excited would be an understatement. I am giddy with joy-again thanks!!
I really wish Blotanical and even blog awards in general could go national like the Emmys or something along those lines. Perhaps one day the blogging world will get that big, not sure. That way all could have access to the process, and even though all have access to this directory, unless you have a garden blog you usually don't visit Blotanical. My co-posters wouldn't have even known about the whole award thing if I hadn't told them and they have blogs-Skeeter-Dawn-Lola! They know now.
In the Garden Blog made the final five for the following categories:
Best Garden Art Blog
Best Educational Blog
Best Tennessee Blog
And a huge surprise-a Blogger Award Nomination:
Blotanist of the Year
How wonderful to even reach the finals and I want to tell everyone who voted for us-thanks! If you made the finals-good luck! If you did not make the finals-don't give up!

P.S. I am currently on the road returning from North Carolina and Mr. Fix-it's 20-Year Class Reunion. I'll check in when I can. Thanks in advance for visiting and good luck to all nominees-they are all such a great bunch and many of the nominees are blogging friends of this blogger and blog-so I really mean it when I say good luck!
