I was actually nominated ?!!



The winners of the 2008 Blotanical Awards have just been declared a few days ago. When I visited the site to find out who the winners were so I could buzz over to congratulate them, I was stunned to see a familiar blog name on the list .


The Urban Gardener has actually featured in the Best Asian Blog category ! It squeezed in at fourth place but ... I didnt even know that it had been nominated!

I'm so embarassed. My mother always claimed that I walk with my head in the clouds and with no idea of what's happening around me, but really...


So, to all of you who took the time and trouble to actually vote for The Urban Gardener, thank you so much, and may your blooms increase! I'm sorry if I appeared ungrateful because I didn't appreciate your efforts earlier, but I just didn't know. Please ignore my blushes and accept my thanks .

  1. Congratulations for for listing in the Blotanical Award. Let me repeat that you have a class blog.

    The periwinkle photograph is great. The orchid picture is good too.

  2. Thank you! The nomination was a real surprise! I didnt know about it mainly because I was tied up with my son's exams (Indian education! Parents get more stressed out than the students!)so I would just have time to peek at my mail and log off again. Maybe good things come when you dont go looking for them!

  9. Your blog is delightful and upbeat, Sunita! I didn't vote...not much for the competition thing. You do have my vote as one of my favorites! (if that's worth anything!)

  10. Thanks, Kim. That's worth much more than you'll ever know.
    Its worth all the early-morning and late-night hours of pecking away at the keyboard.
    Its worth hearing all those disgruntled "Mama, cant you do that later?".
    Its worth all those hours in the hot sun trying to get a good photo, at a time when all sane creatures are hiding in the shade.
    Its worth .... well, more than you'll ever know :D
