I am very pleased to say that I’ve been given a Versatile Blogger Award by the splendid Nivedita AKA Curiosity and the Cat (www.curiousfeline.wordpress.com) Thank you!
I understand that if I accept the Versatile Blogger Award, I need to:
“Nominate 10-15 other bloggers
Inform them of this amazing award bestowed upon them
Share 7 random facts about myself
Thank the blogger who awarded me (complete with the link)”
Here’s some random nonsense:
1. I’m a pescetarian
2. I’ve lost over 3 stones with Weightwatchers
3. I want to write a book but I’m too scared to try
4. I am slightly obsessed with owls
5. I’m an expert procrastinator
6. I’m very happily married (7 years tomorrow – Happy Anniversary BH!)
7. I enjoy Kung-fu movies and Japanese horror
Here goes, my nominations are, in random order: (www. …….. .wordpress.com)
Lydia Street (lydiastreetdotcom) – beautiful garden and home posts from Christe and Dianna
Born to Organise (gardeningnirvana) – Alys writes a fun, postively inspiring gardening and life blog
Slim Nexus (thenexuscore) – aquarist, gardener, budding linguist and all round project obsessive (and helpful with fish questions!)
Silver Bells (silverbells2012) – Helen’s lovely garden blog with some really great photos and inspiration
Suburban Eye Feast (suburbaneyefeast) – fun, positive posts about beauty products, ‘how to’s, with a bit of life and family thrown in
Devon Morton’s Reef Tank Blog (devonmorton.com) – a dream tank from an experienced reef aquarist
Dust Tracks on the Web (dusttracks) – amazing, prolific and stunningly beautiful wildlife photography
Book Volunteer (oxfamwilmslow) – reminds me what great and weird books there are out there, with great reviews
Casual Natural Southern Feminist (casualnatural) – varied blog with fine opinion posts, love it
Romancing the Bee (romancingthebee) – recipes, plants, bees, what more do you need?!
Quratzafar (quratzafar) – excellent, atmospheric story writing
I hope I have got all your details down correctly but please let me know if not! I’m really enjoying blogging and reading your posts too so thanks!
It’s a lovely list, and I’m happy to be included. I’ve added a link to my “Blog Love” page here: http://gardeningnirvana.wordpress.com/blog-love/
How do you add hyperlinks? I’ve been trying to do that so I can reference people on my blog but so far no luck!
I think I am as advanced in my WordPress skills as you! I link too individual posts by copying the address from the browser and pasteing into a post… Sorry no skills here!
That somehow doesn’t work for me – but if people right click on the link they can still get to the relevenant web address, so that is something!
There is a link icon on the edit page. First, type the word or phrase you want to link.
Then highlight that
Then click the link icon
From there it will open a box. Cut and paste the link into the first box, then describe it in the second one and save. Hyperlink!
Thanks wise one, that is really useful!
Thank you, that it is brilliant to know!
You are most welcome.
I love reading your posts as well! 🙂 I am also very glad to be included on this list as well.
Yey for you!
Thank you very much for my nomination! I am enjoying reading your blog, too. Hopefully, your blog will give you the confidence to write that book 🙂
Thanks you are very kInd! Have a nice day!
Thanks for nominating me. I’m really flattered and delighted that you like my blog. Personally, I find it a bit hard going at times and there’s nothing more restorative than a bit of praise! I love your blog too, in particular because you’re so positive and optimistic and your plants are so lovely. It does me good when I see the slug devastation in my garden ( I try not to put down too many organic slug pellets because I love the toads in the garden and worry about their health) to be reminded of the beauty and the potential.
I’m going to be slow about nominating my awards because I’ve been thinking about the maths. If everyone accepts an award and nominates 10 others within a week it will only take a couple of months to make 100m awards …and there are only 25m word press bloggers!
You are indeed a thoughtful blogger and yes the number of nominations is interesting! It’s nice to know that you are there to comment or advise on gardening matters. I think your blog is great but you have set yourself quite a target for your posts. I hope you print and display your reviews in the shop!

Congratulations on a much-deserved award. Your blog—and your garden—are quite beautiful.
That is so nice of you, thank you. I find the garden, well parts of it, beautiful and it’s nice to know other people can see it too.
