And the Award Goes to ..........

well, a lot of people actually. I feel honoured to have been given this award by both Wildlife Gardener (Our Little Corner of Paradise) and Shirl from Shirl's Gardenwatch, both gardenbloggers from Scotland. And of course I'm happy to pass this award on to some of my fellow garden bloggers.

What's this Bloggers for Positive Global Change Award thingy all about?

The award is the brain child of Climate Of Our Future to commemorate blogger's efforts around the world to share their knowledge, thoughts and inspirations in making this a better, healthier, more sustainable world.

Meme Rules

It’s easy to participate in this meme. At minimum, you can proudly display the BPGC badge (it’s available in two varieties: Transparent GIF and JPEG with white background) on your blog and bask in the glow of our collective good will. If you are sharing the kudos, however, please make sure you pass this list of rules to the blogs you are tagging.

The participation rules are simple:

When you get tagged, write a post with links to up to 5 blogs that you think are trying to change the world in a positive way.
In your post, make sure you link back to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme.
Leave a comment or message for the bloggers you’re tagging, so they know they’re now part of the meme.
Optional : Proudly display the “Bloggers For Positive Global Change” award badge with a link to the post that you write up.

Let's get cracking:

1) Kylee, from Our Little Acre

2) Lady Luz, from Costa de la Luz

3) Silke und Wolfgang from Wildwuchs unter Aufsicht and Baeren im Garten

4) Jodi from the Bloomingwriter

5) Marleen from Huisje, Boompjes, Beestjes

As soon as you visit their wonderful blogs it will become crystal clear why each and every one of them deserve this special award. They all make this world a better place, for both people and kittycats (not forgetting the odd d*ggy or two)!

We Dutch always give flowers on special occasions and this certainly is special, so here you are my dears!

And if your blog didn't get an award today, cheer up because here's a lovely basket full of blissful comfort food especially for you.

Oh hang on, that's the wrong basket, it's this one of course. Enjoy!

Before I forget, stick around because more awards are going to be handed out on Bliss soon!

'New' is the most enticing adjective, the most likely to appeal to our baser yearnings. ' Old', I have pointed out, is likely to mean well-tested and a worthwhile survivor.

Van harte gefeliciteerd met de Award Yolanda! En ik wil jou ook bedanken voor het doorgeven aan het HBB-blog. Ik voel mij zeer vereerd.... :-)
Toch kom ik de Award terugbrengen, want ik doe liever niet meer mee aan tags, memes of stokjes, ook al gaat het om een goede zaak. Sorry, hopelijk geen 'hard feelings'..

Thank You or rather I should say Dank u wel, Yolanda Elizabet, for the award. I'm touched--and now happily collecting up five worthy individuals to share the joy with. Finding five is easy--picking only five is the challenge. :-)

Kylee said...

Thank you, Yolanda Elizabet! What a great compliment you've paid me. Now to pass it on...

Congratulations all won won the award!
I'll take the first basket please, not that I don't like fruit!

Yolanda Elizabet said...

Hi all and welcome to Bliss!

Monika: thank you!

Marleen: bedankt en nee, je kan de award niet terug geven. Eens gegeven, blijft gegeven. :-) Je hebt hem verdiend hoor. Enne, in de regels staat dat je ook gewoon je award dankbaar in ontvangst kan nemen en het daarbij laten. Heerlijk he, zo vrijheid-blijheid systeem. Dus voel je niet bezwaard, ok?

Jodi: you're speaking Dutch now I see. Leuk! ;-) You're right of course, finding 5 is easy but picking only 5. Oh, the agony! ;-)

Kylee: you're worth a compliment or two. ;-)

Libby: I knew it! I knew you would go for basket number 1. What can I say? You have impeccable taste! ;-)

Congratulations on your award ... you've also picked wonderful bloggers for the award!

Would it be okay if I took home the basket with Dolly in it? She fits so perfectly there. Oh and I'd also like the gooseberries and strawberries too!

Hi Yolanda and congratulations. They're a bit late in arriving as I'd messed up my cookies setting and couldn't access anything for a couple of days.

Many thanks for passing on the badge and I have spread the word to three websites.

Everything looks scrumptious in yur garden, as usual, and I love to see the furry creatures rolling around. What characters they all are....just adorable.
