2009 Blotanical Awards

Woo hoo My blog has been nominated along with 4 others for best Georgia garden blog over at Blotanical. I have to say as excited as I am to be nominated I don't feel that I deserve it. My gardens this year were a bust.. With all the rain we had I didn't really even get to plant, tend or maintain my gardens as a matter of fact I went out this morning after seeing the nominations and all I see is a mess !


Blue Mistflower ~ Conoclinium coelestinum



The Blue Mist has taken over and yes that is very tall grass running through it..




Firespike ~ Odontonema strictum
I had to baby this Firespike through the rain just to get a few blooms


Turks Turban and here is one of my Turks Turban laying on the ground when it is suppose to be 15 ft in the air .. which you can see last years here ~

So now you can see why I don't feel worthy but I do feel honored to be even thought about. I would like to say thank you to everyone that nominated me and to each and everyone of you that follow along as a play at being a garden blogger with a whole lot of other stuff like babies being thrown in ... lol

I would also like to say Congratulations to the others and ask ya'll to go by and say hi .

  1. Thank you for all the encouragement, Cherry. I just signed up for Blotanical about a month ago, because it seemed the thing to do.

    I counted about 24 Georgia blogs on Blotanical. So far I've found no other blogs over in this direction (AL/FL line), but I haven't looked at all of them yet.

    Your blog has lots of fun things besides flowers. All those babies are just adorable. You covered peanuts well; I'll have to do soybeans.

  5. Congrats to you Cherry.
    I have the Blue Mist flower alllll over too. It is salt tolerant so it makes it through the high tides when others don't make it.

  8. I think each of us sees way more flaws in our gardens than we do. Your garden looks good to me in these photos.

  14. Cherry, did you buy and plant those Blue Mist flowers or did they accidently appear one day? I have something that looks like that and they have spread quickly, and I have not idea where they came from. I didn't buy or plant them. The man that everybody hires to do their flower bed maintence and pruning, mulching, etc. calls the Wild Ageratium because that's what they look like. I left them because they added color in my flower beds. I'm going to compare the leaves of yours to mine. If they match, at least I'll know what they are. Whatever mine are they have spread rapidly. My husband thinks they are weeds.
