With A Little Help From My Friends


To my surprise, Bliss is one of the finalists in the first Mouse & Trowel Garden Bloggers Awards ever. The category my blog is in, is Best International Garden Blog.

As I had not expected to be nominated at all, it was Gotta Garden and Annie in Austin ( a finalist herself) who gave me the heads up today. Thanks ladies, what would I do without you?

I would like to thank everyone that nominated Bliss for Best International Garden Blog. Thank you all, that was very kind of you and I appreciate it a lot!

And now, this is where I need a little help from my garden bloggers friends : vote for Bliss


Compared to gardeners, I think it is generally agreed that others understand very little about anything of consequence. Henry Mitchell

Liebe Yolanda, komisch, heute kann ich wieder bei Dir Kommentare schreiben. Ging bei mir wohl heute teilweise auch nicht, hat mir Jutta geschrieben.
Schön, dass Du Dein Gewächshaus hast, und schon so früh allerlei Gemüse und Obst hast. In Deinem Garten sieht es schon so richtig professionell aus. Ich mag Deinen Garten sehr, Du zeigst immer wieder Fotos, die Lust auf mehr machen. Liebe Grüße Birgit

Congratulations dear Yolanda! I have always found your blog a class apart and the effort you put in to visit other blogs, including mine, is really worth appreciating. You might have been surprised by the nomination but I find it quite expected.
Best of luck for the final result!

Van harte gefeliciteerd Yolanda, nominaties voor je rusjes ken je reeds goed en nu de tuin samen met de katjes; ik ben dan wel geen tuin blogger, maar ik stem zeker op je schitterende blog, tenminste als een niet blogger mag stemmen ;-)
