Blotanical Awards ... Good News! .... Awards
Super News!
While I've been scouting interesting settings in my home town, Chicago,
it has just come to my attention that
Bay Area Tendrils Garden Travel has been nominated
for a number of awards on Blotanical - the go-to web site
and gathering place for countless garden geeks, landscape designers, plant lovers,
and garden travelers, too,
be they partaking of a virtual feast of gardens in their own backyards,
or slipping on their walking shoes to trek through great gardens further afield.

Thank you, Stuart Robinson, the Australian gardening mate who thought up the idea for Blotanical. Stuart keeps its wheels turning... even as the number of blogging green, brown, and variegated thumbs grows greater with each passing day.
Here are the categories where you'll find Bay Area Tendrils nominated:
Best Blog Design
Best Garden Art
Best California Blog
and a unique niche: Blog You'd Most Like An Invite From to Guest Post
Thanks, all! I must sign off now.....
