Cold Climate Gardening Nominated for Best Rural/Farming Blog

– Posted in: About this site, Blogging Art and Practice

A while back I mentioned that nominations were being accepted for the Mouse & Trowel awards. Frankly, I didn’t expect to get nominated, as I couldn’t spare the time to “promote” myself and the garden blogging arena has gotten quite a bit more crowded. Imagine my surprise to discover I had been nominated for the Best Rural/Farming Blog category. I’m in great company, as you can see by the vote widget in the sidebar.

Thank you to everyone who nominated this blog. I am honored and deeply grateful for your vote of confidence. There are many other categories besides the rural one. The Mouse & Trowel voting page has them all. If you vote for the Rural category by using the sidebar widget here, don’t vote again for that same category at the Mouse & Trowel page.

About the Author

Kathy Purdy is a colchicum evangelist, converting unsuspecting gardeners into colchicophiles. She would be delighted to speak to your group about colchicums or other gardening topics. Kathy’s been writing since 4th grade, gardening since high school, and blogging since 2002.

Now, the digging and dividing of perennials, the general autumn cleanup and the planting of spring bulbs are all an act of faith. One carries on before the altar of delayed gratification, until the ground freezes and you can’t do any more other than refill the bird feeder and gaze through the window, waiting for the snow. . . . Meanwhile, it helps to think of yourself as a pear tree or a tulip. You will blossom spectacularly in the spring, but only after the required period of chilling.

Congratulations, Kathy, and good luck to you! I’ve also been nominated for the best post of the year…I can’t believe it I’m in the finals! I’ll definitely vote for you, and for Pam @ Digging. There’s a couple other faves on the list as well.
