Blotanical 2009 Awards – Thank You!

My mouth was open wide when i saw my blog nominated in the 2009 blotanical awards in the category of best container gardening blog. I mean its just over a month over blotanical and with the limited space i have for growing, i was just amazed to have my blog nominated.

I would like to extend my thanks to blotanical and other fellow bloggers who visit my blog and pay such nice and encouraging comments and send messages. i mean its all because of you guys that i have reached here, no doubt in that. Best of luck to all my fellow bloggers in this year's awards.

And last but not least, i feel so proud to be the only blogger from Pakistan( love to have some one join me, birdie!!!, mars!!!!, mania!!!, zahra!!! are you fellas reading this?).

So head over to blotanical 2009 voting page and vote as much as you can. here is the link to vote.

Update: Got 5th position, Hurray!!!!

Congratulations, Khabbab. You deserve it.

I agree with Mary Delle - we all love your blog!

I was astonished, too -- not that you were nominated but that I was nominated for Georgia Blogger.

I think it appropriate that you are a nominee. Your pictures of tropical plants are wonderful. We grow some of the same plants, like the candlesticks (Cassia alata) blooming now.

The only thing I think odd about the awards is that some blogs that have not had a post in a year are in the contest. Somehow 'best blogger' and 'hasn't blogged in a year' are not compatible. Maybe it will inspire them to return to the blog.

Wow I am exciting after reading about it and just hope you win you win. A minute ago I joined this site only for a purpose of voting for your blog.

Best of luck.

I also love reading The Balcony Garden blog so it happened to be a tough decision for me. But being a Pakistani my vote goes for you.

A big mistake. this above Anonymous message(Wow I am exciting after reading....) is by me. Mania. I don't know how it happened.

Hi Muhammad - here's a good luck wish from the competition. I've just voted myself and it was really tough - there were usually two or even three blogs which I wanted to vote for in each category. So, a note to "Anonymous" above - I do understand and I'll forgive you - this time :)

Hi Muhammad, I'm sending congratulations and best of luck to you, as well! I've been horrible about visiting your blog...but then again, I haven't been good about visiting anyone's for a little while. When winter comes I'll be snuggled up with a blanket, on my laptop, browsing through all of the beautiful garden blogs...including yours;-)
