I'd like to pass on the Excellence Award and have the same dilemma as Sue in Milan - many of the blogs I read have already got them. I don't think the following ones have, so I'm nominating them for giving me so much pleasure when I visit:
Colin and Carol
at Mediterranean Gardening. They are further north than us and I find their blog informative and entertaining.
is in Sweden and has recently started blogging in English. I like the fact that he shares my enthusiasm for Robert Pirsig's "Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance".
in Texas is a plucky young woman learning about gardening and what to do with her life and needs all the encouragement she can get.
in Honduras has kept me entertained since I started blogging. She has something to say about many things connected with her adopted country since leaving the USA.
Bill at the Throbbing Thumb
in southern Australia. I have learned a few things about Australian plants we have in common which obviously thrive in a Mediterranean climate.
in UK - such lovely English countryside images and so lyrical and poetic a blog that I feel nostalgic.
in Portugal - can be translated into English. I just love visiting to see what's blooming over the border.
And finally, Zut Alors
in California for her sheer exuberance.
