I am dead chuffed (does anyone outside of Britain understand what that means?) to have been given the Great Comments Award by Danette.
Danette created this award herself, so I guess I can claim to be the proud owner of an "original", and it inspired me to be creative myself.
So, this is the launch of Botanist's very own Blog of Outstanding Natural Beauty award.
The purpose of this award is to recognize blogs which do an exceptional job of extolling, presenting, or promoting beauty in some form or another.
This is not a tag, with lots of things for the taggee to do, so the rules are very simple.
For the giver
If you see a truly beautiful blog, feel free to bestow this award. You do not need to be tagged first. Just grab the image, say why you are awarding it, and let the recipient know.
For the recipient
You do not need to pass it on, or answer questions, or stand on one leg while drinking a glass of water and reciting the alphabet backwards. Just acknowledge the giver, display the award with pride, and bask in the appreciation.
And this first award goes to ... Danette!
While I was thinking about creating my own award and keeping it simple (inspired by Danette's example) her own blog inspired the subject itself.
I enjoy her frequent and illustrated excursions into the stunning wild country where she lives - the rugged trails, trees, wide views from high places. Her blog is a visual feast of nature in all its raw and untamed beauty. Please pop over and say "Hi!"
