With Thanks and Gratitude


Many of you are familiar with Blotanical, the website "where garden blogs bloom." For the past few weeks, nominations and voting were carried out for their annual Blotanical Awards for excellence in many aspects of garden blogging.

On Wednesday, the votes were in and the winners announced. I was surprised and thrilled to find out that Our Little Acre was voted "Best Ohio Blog" by my fellow Blotanists! Nothing makes one feel happier than to know that your peers like what you do and choose to express that by taking the time to vote.

Thank you.


Gardening is a great love of mine and so is writing about it. Perhaps that shines through each time I publish another entry here. In any case, I'm grateful for the honor that's been bestowed upon me and will endeavor to continue to bring you information and updates on what we grow and do here at Our Little Acre in a way that keeps you coming back for more. I truly enjoy your comments and have learned so much from you.


For those that have never visited the other Ohio blogs that were nominated with me in this category, you're missing out. There's some quality writing, photography and overall good stuff contained within the pages of
A Hocking Hills Garden, Life in Robin's Nest, Chiot's Run, and A Study in Contrasts. Check them out, as well as the winners in other categories.

Congratulations to all!

Kylee, Many congratulations on receiving this award! I was humbled to think someone nominated me for the Iowa award. Didn't make it, but there was stiff competition!! :-)

By the way, on September 10 you tagged me for a meme. I've finally found time to post!

So nicely put. You know, it was interesting to see some states I read all the blogs from that area. Other states I hadn't a clue. Go figure.

(And thanks for the link love, and letting me know that I had been nominated, too, by the way. I haven't been able to log into Blotanical for months now, in spite of resetting my password several times, so I had no idea.)
