Your votes mean a lot to us!

As our mum would have said, Sarah and I are frilled, just frilled to be among the five garden blog finalists for the Blotanical Awards 2009 in the Best Canadian Blog category. Thank you for your votes in phase one of the process! As relative new kids on the garden block, we’re honoured to be in such great company.

These include the prolific and knowledgeable Jodi from Bloomingwriter in Nova Scotia; the irrepressible Joy at GardenJoy4Me in Eastern Ontario; the creative and observant Nancy at Soliloquy, another Nova Scotian; and the undeterred by Zone 3 chilliness NS at Northern Shade Gardening of Alberta. And Toronto Gardens, of course. Did I mention that?

All are excellent reads and, to all my fellow Blotanists, I’d encourage you to visit each of us before voting… for Toronto Gardens. Just kidding. Not. Whatever you decide, it’s still exciting to be here. Congratulations to all the finalists.


  1. Congratulations – you're in good company.

    I won't say who I'll vote for. I like to keep that knowledge a secret between me and the highest bidder.

  2. Congratulation, I cannot vote for you as I am not a member of Blotanical, but if I was, you would have my vote. All the blogs are excellent, but as a fellow Torontonian and former Beacher, you have a place close to my heart.

  3. You so deserve to be in that fine group! It certainly is a category loaded with exceptional blogs. My own feelings are that it is an honor to be nominated, whoever wins. 🙂

  4. Hi Helen and Sarah,
    I've come in because I'm looking at all the finalists in the Blotanical awards – and you must be in the toughest category of all. The competition is awesome and you all deserve to win. So good luck – but even if you don't, you have a superb blog.
