Thank you so much to Stephanielane AND to Aimee at Red Garden Clogs for the Versatile Blogger award. This post is much overdue from when Aimee first nominated me a little while back. Thank you so much, ladies ! And a very humble thanks to Stephanie for the Blog on Fire award as well. I feel honoured and truly appreciate that you enjoy my blog.
I never know what to say when I’m put on the spot, heh, but I also wanted to take this opportunity to say thanks to all the folks that come over to my blog each day, I love to read each and every comment and feel so much gratitude for the help and knowledge that everyone leaves for me ! It leaves me inspired with a much better understanding of gardening and plants. I’m just a beginner and always learning.
I started this blog just to keep track of what I have planted, what has worked in the garden and what hasn’t, and to store photos of my plants each year. I honestly thought I was the only person to have a blog based solely on gardening. I enjoy so many blogs here and so glad to have found many of you. Here is a list of some of my favourites. Hope you will check them out if you haven’t already.

Ok, now a few things about myself…
—I was vegetarian for years until I got pregnant with my first and I started to actually crave meat. I just try to limit red meat now.
—I live in skinny jeans or leggings.
—My brain doesn’t function until I have had a cup of coffee in the morning.
—My entire family lives in Britain, mostly Scotland.
—It has been my dream since high school to live in either California or Arizona. I LOVE the heat.
—During the week when the baby is napping and no one else is home I dance.
—I do natural parenting – I cloth diaper, babywear, homemade baby food, gentle discipline, extended breastfeeding, co-sleeping.
—I love anything by Margaret Atwood.
—I have had an obsession with baby names for many years. I would keep lists of all my favourites and was a member on a baby name message board for 10 years, up until last summer when gardening became my thing.
—Lastly, I am terrified to turn 30 in December, no clue why…
So, thanks again, everyone, for keeping up with my gardening surprises and dilemmas. I appreciate it very much.
