Diane at Alberta Postcards was kind enough to give me an Excellent Blog Award. Mind Sieve came up with the idea to give this award to other blogs that you like, and if you’re awarded you have to pass it on, etc. Diane blogs about nature, gardening, writing, and poetry, among other things….plus you’ll really enjoy her photos (for ex., check out this post about the color blue.) Thanks Diane!
I have been derelict in my blogging responsibilities lately. I keep up with the blogs I read almost exclusively through aggregator sites like Bloglines, Blotanical, and Nature Blog Network. They give me a snapshot of the headlines, articles, and photos on many blogs without having to click through to all the blogs at different times. Because of this and time constraints I’ve all but given up commenting on blogs. But, I do have a list of blogs where I “lurk” or visit via a feed or other aggregator. These are the ones I give the Excellent Blog Award to.
In alphabetical order:
Firefly at Sweet Pea Chronicle. An inspiring writer and fellow New England gardener, Firefly blogs from Maine. I always learn something when I visit her site and I love the way she writes about nature.
Green Thumb at India Garden. Green Thumb blogs from the other side of the world. Her pictures of her garden in northern India is fabulous. When I visit her site and look at her photos, I have to swallow my envy!
Kris at Blithewold. Kris has one of the best jobs in the world. As interpretive horticulturist at Blithewold Mansion, Gardens, and Arboretum right here in Bristol, Little Rhody, Kris blogs about the beauties of nature that she experiences every day.
Layanee at Ledges and Gardens. Another Rhode Islander, Layanee is only about 20 minutes away from me in Foster. She has great knowledge about plants and the plant business, great photos to share, and….Tucker!!!
Michelle at Living Stress Free Naturally. Michelle has very thoughtful and detailed posts about holistic stress management therapies and other health and wellness topics.
And for fellow Rhode Islanders, two blogs packed with Rhode Island-specific information: Sue at Providential Gardener and Mary at Natural News Network. Sue is on top of the Providence gardening scene, tending a bounty of information, including a great events calendar. Mary is doing a great job keeping Our Little State informed about all things green, including policy, nature-related events, environmental issues, and much much more. If you’re in Rhode Island and you don’t know about these two….go now!
