Blog Award Redux

* Gush *  My blog has been given the Kreativ Blogger Award  from Leah at Who Moved My Cheese Straw? 

I am so flattered and truly honored that she would think of my blog for this wonderful award!  Leah’s blog is fabulous and so much fun to follow! 

Check it out Here.

Now, there are tasks I must perform in order to wear this badge. 

First, I must tell Seven things about myself that you don’t know. 

Second, I must pass this little trophy

on to seven other blogs/bloggers.

First, here are some things you may not know about me. 

1.  I have an identical twin sister who is as passionate about plants and gardens as I am.

2.  I am absolutely mad for tennis!  I love to play it and I love to watch it!  So disappointing to hear about Andre Agassi’s hatred for the game he excelled at.  Read all about this in his new book Open.

3.  I love weiner dogs!

4.  I am a huge fan of Survivor!  It invented the genre of Reality TV, and it is the only reality tv show that I watch.

5.  I do have a bucket list.  Do you?

6.  I am a Scorpio and recently celebrated my birthday.   I have also just learned that my colorstrology color is Jester Red. *

7.  I once met David Bowie.  He was absolutely fascinating!

Now that you’ve gotten to know me better, the second task I must do is pass along this award to seven other blogs/bloggers.  So here goes--

1.  Sisters Julie Hoylen and Kate Smith do a fabulous job with Live in Full Color, a wonderful blog all about the world of color!

2.  Michelle Morelan at A Schematic Life is so talented as an artist and a designer.  I would just die for one of her beautiful paintings!  You’ll love what she shares with us each day!

3.  You’ll also love, love, love tagging along with Tamara and The Big Guy from The Greenhouse Diaries as they manage their very talented family and very large business, Darvonda Nurseries, as well as travel the world.

4.  Linda at :: Lime in the Coconut :: will enchant you with her words and colorful life in south Florida.  A great blog!

  1. Oh man, you are such a sweety! Thanks for that wonderful've given me inspiration to go BACK to the greenhouse tonight and post some pictures of the points. They are ready and we've started to ship. Talk about BUSY, BUSY, BUSY!

    Thanks again :)

  2. Thank you so much for the award, Pam :-) We really appreciate it!!

    BTW, your October plant of the month is gorgeous!!

    Kelly (& Victoria too :-)

  3. Congrats on your award! Well deserved!
    Twin sister...Cool!

    And David Bowie...Oh Man I have had a crush on him like...forever!

    Thank you so much for the award and your sweet words! You are the best!

  4. Congratulations Pam! Identical twin? Agassi did later choose tennis so..., I think the hatred was more toward being pushed into it under someone else's terms...., and thank you so very much for the award and your nice words! I'm going to make a button now for your blog and put in my Completely Coastal sidebar under Inspirational Links..., you should be seeing it by the end of next week -hope you'll like it!

  5. The garden on top that you liked so much, complies
    with all gardening mandatory aesthetic principles
    of composition...However, as a critic, I declare
    that this type of hedges with turf and topiaries requires LOTS of maintenance, high maintenance, that is. Costly, and polluting, since it requires
    the use of electricity, gas/oil/propane or diesel
    to mow/trim/prune.
    For these reasons when I look at a garden, I do
    appreciate the original geometrics of this garden
    but when I look at beauty, I can never obviate
    maintenance, a defect of mine.
    Your blogs is still one of the best I have
    discovered in the web. Congratulations.


I love comments! Let me know your thoughts.
