Now this is a really serious message to all of my fellow bloggers out there .... please, please, please, no more awards. You can mention my blog, you can put me in your side column links, you can follow me, but I'm really serious, no more awards..... no, not for anything ... not for best blog, meme, youyou, usus or hehe, or should it be hee hee...??
I want you all to know that I do this blog because I LOVE gardens, I love visiting gardens and, because I am lucky enough to have a camera when I am out and about, an ability to point the lens at things that I like and take pictures.
The rest is history. Once I've put my eye behind the camera, downloaded the results on to my computer and then got on to "Blogger" and published, it's all down to technology. I'm really pleased that so many of you like the results. I'm deeply flattered that you want to pass awards on to me, but I actually feel that I'd rather read what you all write about so well.... rather than seeing you worry about passing on awards.
I'm sure that like most of you, I started blogging because I wanted to try something new, and then it sort of grew.... just like plants in the garden ... and then it grew again... need I say more?
I made lots of mistakes; I tried not to repeat those mistakes; I had a great passion for gardens and found that people wanted to read what I had to say and look at my photographs; but now I'd like all of you to enjoy those pictures and odd bits of text in between and leave comments...
