Thank You, Internet Neighbors!


Thank you, neighbors across the Internet, for voting for me to win a 2007 Mouse & Trowel award for “Garden Blogger You’d Most Like to Have as a Neighbor”.

I’m thrilled to win and humbled to be “Internet neighbors” with so many other wonderful garden bloggers, especially Colleen who thought up the awards and made it all happen. She did a great job coming up with categories, putting together a great website for nominating and voting, and making us all aware of some new garden blogs we hadn’t found yet.

Thank you all, and have a happy day in your garden today!

Hi Carol, Congratulations, you deserve it. Your knowledge, drive and most of all humor would make you a perfect neighbor. Yes, the lilacs are beautiful this year - mine always have fragrance mingled with lily-of-the-valley - a heady mixture. We don't have any fancy ones like yours, just some 60 year old "shrubs" (more like small trees) that were placed here long ago. I think people have always enjoyed them! Have a wonderful Mother's Day.

Congratulations, Carol. I'd be happy to have you as a neighbor, but Internet neighbor is almost as good.

Colleen said...

Congratulations, Carol! I know I'd love to have you as a neighbor :-)

I definitely think of you as my neighbor. We certainly chat back and forth more often than anyone that lives physically nearby.

Congratulations!

CONGRATULATIONS Carol, I too think you are so deserving of the award, your blog is like a letter from home every day. Even thought I am not a big gardner I am always eager to see what you are writing about and always love the pictures. Also enjoy your sense of humor--all is all--a great blog.

You're a wonderful virtual neighbor already, Carol ~ but I'm hoping for more. Frank & Helene never did more than write letters, but my hope is that some year, some way, we will meet in person.

Also, I have one word for you as you contemplate that 'garden feature': Harvey.

Congratulations Carol. I for one would love to have you as my neighbor.

There's a cute house for sale up the street.

Congratulations!

I need a gate.

Sue Swift said...

Congratulations! I was rooting for you for "Most Innovative" too. Thought you deserved it for the way you always manage to come up with ideas that involve other bloggers. But never mind. If the people next door decide to sell their house, just let us know!

Congrats ‘neighbor’. You are certainly one of the hardest working, and nicest blogers out there. Per you suggestion I have enabled Google alerts and am quite happy you told me about it. In your honor ‘neighbor’ we will cut the crabgrass before it flowers and blows into your yard.
