Me Me Me
It's been a real chore to decide whom to tag.
Sue of A Corner Garden does not accept Awards and has already declined, but she needs recognition for her marvelous garden that jumped all the way across the street to the neighbor's vacant lot. Go see her blog if you're not already a follower; Sue's a dedicated blogger.
Teri of Teri's Painted Daisies is a blog that I recently found. We think of Painted Daisies as Pyrenthrum; Teri Paints Daisies, and other flowers. Her various days of the week topics will give you new ways of looking at the Garden.
Tom of Seventh Street Cottage keeps his blog as a daily diary of his garden for future personal reference; highly interesting to the rest of us, too. We've followed his rooted cuttings, his seedlings, his bargain plants, and now his injured leg which slowed him down a bit, but he's back out there gathering seeds as I type.
Janie, the Obsessive Compulsive Plant Collector introduced me to Texas wonders like Esperanza, Pride of Barbados, Duranta, Bulbine and countless other goodies that grow here as well as there. Janie is a Texas Master gardener and a very generous soul.
Flower Lady of Flower Lady's Musings grows many of the same flowers that I do, except that hers grow year around outside and I drag mine inside for winter, like Night Blooming Cereus. Hers is the only blog with music that I don't search for the off button when it starts.
I've known Ohio Mom a long time, online. Once Cooking in Cleveland, she is now Capricious in Cleveland, gardening on a rooftop. You cannot imagine how much can be grown on a rooftop until you visit her blog. BTW, O'Mom is the mother of another Garden Blogger.
Missy, the feminine half of Missy and Wayne's Backyard is one of my newer blog friends. We grow many of the same plants and we both like purple plants. Missy plays the jukebox in her head on her blog and when I see the words, I can usually 'hear' it, too.
The hardest part was deciding who was not going to be listed here. I made a list; there are enough for next time, should we decide to play this game again.
Oh, yeah, what you're supposed to do:
Tell us 7 things about yourself that we might not know.
Select 7 people to whom you'll pass this honor and link to them.
Post a comment on their blog to let them know they are chosen.
They in turn tell 7 things about themselve and select 7 blog friends.
Link back to the person (me) who selected you. (I believe that is the purpose of starting a Meme, backlinks.)
