Horticulture magazine's Best Gardening Blogs.
Apparently, they asked Thorn Goblinfly, the chief scribe of the garden fairies around here what she thought of the idea and she thought quite a lot of it. She also kept it a secret from everyone else. Garden fairies are good at keeping secrets, apparently. It does make me wonder what other gardening secrets they have to share with me.
Hortense Hoelove, Dr Hortfreud, and the Old Woman at the Door were pleased to be mentioned in the write up posted on the Horticulture website, but as expected, were a little miffed that Thorn kept the secret from them, too. I'm sure there will be discussions amongst them all about that. I'll stay out of it, if I can. There's no benefit for me to pick sides in a debate about who's who around here.
I will always have a soft spot for Horticulture magazine and their editors because they were the first to publish something I wrote. No matter what anyone tells you, opening up a magazine and seeing your name on a by-line is a wonderful thing.
It's also a wonderful thing to be one of their Best Gardening Blogs. Thank you to Jenny Koester for choosing my blog this month and for the wonderful, creative way she did it.
