Someone at Horticulture likes me

November 19, 2009

Most days you just walk the dog and dig in the yard, and you’re happy. Then some days you wake up and find yourself in the news. This morning I opened email to find a message congratulating this blog on being one of Horticulture magazine’s 20 favorite garden blogs. I know, odd considering I have about 9 regular readers who aren’t my family, and I know most of them. The rest come for silly suit pictures, bloody eyeballs, how hellish getting to the top of either Mt. Colden or Mt. Rainier will be (in my experience, a tossup), and funny turtles, rounding out 8 of the top 10 all time search terms.

I started this blog when I moved east to get married and soon after spend 5 months in Kenya, anticipating a lot of photos and needing a way to share them without spamming our families. That first summer, we dug up the yard, and I fell in love with having the first garden I could truly call my own. Looking for advice, I found the garden bloggers. Through them I’ve gained essential knowledge, inspiration, confidence, and friendship, and I’m grateful. There are so many great garden blogs that I know tomorrow’s top 20 would look totally different, so it’s a real honor to be recognized today.
Thank you.

If this is your first visit, I hope you’ll come back for the gardening & the seasons, and hang around for the travel, the music, and the beagle.

    Honored to have you as a neighbor. Needless to say, you need to add this to your photography blog. You have launched it and have a link in the post above, right?
