The Arte y Pico Award

What larks - I've been very kindly awarded the Arte y Pico award by two people. It's probably cheating, but I'll combine the thanks in a single post. Apologies for not doing so sooner, work has been horribly interfering with gardening for the past few weeks, unfortunately.

Thank you to both VP and to Emma Townshend for their nominations - it's daft, but I love my blog, so it's lovely that other people sometimes drop by to see what's going on.

Like the Oscars, there are some basic ground rules to receiving the award. Unlike the Oscars, I do not have to ponce about in a borrowed dress and loaned jewellery - just as well, because despite VP's kind comments, elegant most certainly is not a word that springs to mind. Anyway, the rules are:

1. Choose 5 blogs you consider deserving of this award for their creativity, design, interesting material, and contribution to the blogging community, regardless of the language.

2. Each award should have the name of the author and a link to his/her blog to be visited by everyone

3. Each award winner should show the award and put the name and link to the blog that presented him/her with the award.

4. The award winner and the one who has given the award should show the Arte y Pico blog so everyone will know the origin of this award.

5. Show these rules

For those of you who enjoy the feeling of prickly wool next to the skin, the Arte y Pico website has some delightful wool bikinis (just go down the page a bit). Ideal for a day on the beach at Rhyll.
So, it is with great pleasure that I pass on the award to the following bloggers, whose creations I enjoy:
  • Cote jardin - interesting, lovely photos, and also helps me improve my French.

  • James A-S for Blogging at Blackpitts - no doubt he's had many nominations, but here's one more;

  • Olives and Artichokes - plants and food, as well as sunshine - what more could you ask for?

  • The green-fingered photographer - wonderful photos, to which I aspire.

  • Pencil and Leaf - brought to my attention very recently by a post by the Garden Monkey; I am in awe of the artistry.

No obligations to carry the meme on.

Thank you for the Arte y Pico Award. I'm glad you like my blog - as you say, it's nice to know that others enjoy what you're doing. I hope you won't mind, though, if I don't continue it. I have links to some of my favourite blogs on my blog and now I'll add yours to that list. Thanks too for introducing me to your blog.
