Two Awards ….and a change in the rules here :)

The past two weeks have been really busy and I have not had the time to do these so my apologies to those who nominated me. I really do appreciate the nominations which I accept for the compliment however am going to change how I do these, following the lead of two other bloggers, Lois and Robbie. These are very time consuming to do and I run short on time so will no longer do them in their entirety. I also find it hard to just nominate certain blogs as I love all the blogs I follow and many nominees do not “do” awards so….I would like to pass a compliment on to ALL those I follow for their great blogs and point you in the direction of the right hand, lower part of my page to those blogs and tell you there is some great reading and some wonderfully special people there!

VIBA #1Thank you to Robbie from for nominating me for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award 🙂 Robbie has the most beautiful blog, her front page describes it far better than I ever could!

“I designed our “Urban Potager” as a place for people to gather, share and create art…..a place to heal us + nature in our cities, so an Urban Potager is much more than a kitchen garden…it is a place to grow food + flowers + community together while nurturing our creative souls. I am constantly learning about growing in small areas, vertically, containers, recycled raised beds, apartments, suburban lots or any place that a person does not have enough space to grow food”

Robbie is a delight and I enjoy my chats with her! She has the most beautiful photography and a gorgeous garden.

Brigid from nominated me for The Blog of The Year 2013 Award, thank you 🙂

Brigid has a wonderful and truly inspiring blog which covers everything I love, I devour every post…art, food, natural health, birds, organics etc etc. A lover of nature Brigid has the most beautiful photography which she sells from her store. I love this I found on her About page:

Once I spoke the language of the flowers
Once I understood each word the caterpillar said
Once I smiled in secret at the gossip of the Starlings
…and shared a conversation with a housefly in my bed
Once I heard and answered all the questions of the crickets and joined the crying of each falling dying flake of snow,
I once spoke the language of flowers.
How did it go?
How did it go?
Shel Siverstein

Thanks to these two lovely ladies for thinking of me 🙂
