A big thank-you to all my fellow Blotanists

I've only been here at Blotanical for a few months, but I do want to say a BIG thank-you to all of you who've helped me find my way around; made really nice comments on my posts; and sent me messages. But a specially big thank-you goes to Stuart, who spends so many hours sorting us all out; ironing out the problems on the site; and most importantly, for starting Blotanical, and creating a network that allows all us garden bloggers to communicate not just with one another, but with the world at large.

I'm really honoured to have been nominated in this year's awards, both in the Best Blog Name section and the Best UK Blog. I have to say that the name was easy to choose because I do indeed, GALLOP around the gardens I visit, and the blog just started somehow. I still make a lot of mistakes because my knowledge of computers really isn't up to scratch, and I can't tell you how many times I've started writing an entry and then lost it in the ether! Same seems to happen when I try and comment on other people's blogs, but I am learning. In fact, I'd love to put a link here to direct you all to the voting page, but I simply don't know how to.

Best of luck to all my fellow bloggers in this year's awards and I know I should be posting a plant photo today, but as I'm in the US, I still can't resist the evenings on the beach, watching the birds ... hence the photo with this post.

Just off to visit gardens now, so more later.

  6. Congratulations and well deserved, Charlotte. Blotanical is indeed a mighty fine place to meet other gardening enthusiasts, some might say obsessives, but in the nicest possible meaning. Good luck. I don't know how to do the link either if it makes you feel any better. :-)
