Mouse & Trowel Awards Nominee!

I found out a few days ago that I had been nominated for the Mouse & Trowel Awards!  I have never heard of these before but I've only been blogging for about 10 months.  There are many different sections and I'm in the 'best indoor gardening blog' portion.  If you enjoy this blog, please take a look and vote for me.  Also look through the other categories and vote for your favourites there.  Voting is open until 11:59 on May 17th and the winners will be announced on May 18th.

On another note, Vancouver is incredible!  Walking through the streets is like being in a garden.  There are palm trees, bananas, rhododendrons, camellias, monkey puzzle trees, and vegetable gardens everywhere.  It's simply amazing.  I'll take some photos when I get more settled in.  I honestly only recognize about half of the plants I see.  This is really odd for me.  I used to know just about everything.  I've got a lot of learning to do!


  1. Congrats on the nomination! You deserve it. I cannot wait to read more about what you have to say about what plants you're discovering.

  2. Again, congrats! I haven't been following your adventure, I have to say--work started blocking blogger and wordpress! I'm at my wits' end. What to do without blogs? Sigh.

  3. @Kennth, that's terrible. You'll have to hack the system or something. That or run to starbucks if possible! Life has no meaning without blogs... :(

  4. Check out Queen's Park in New Westminster when you get the chance. They have beautiful gardens! Monkey Tree's are cool!

  5. Thanks for mentioning Queen's Park. I thought you meant Queen Elizabeth park! I was a little confused but then I looked it up. This one's a bit farther but I'll definitely check it out.


Thanks for contributing!
