Best Garden Blog in Arizona?

Well, I'm amazed. Designing in the Desert has been nominated for the 2009 Blotanical Award of Best Garden Blog in Arizona. I'm honored and amazed. Thank you all so much, who voted so far. I've been working so much, I wasn't even aware of the awards or my nomination until another blogger sent me a congratulatory "tweet" this afternoon.

Which brings me to another point, the competition.... I don't have a chance.

Mo at Green Desert and Aiyana at Water When Dry both have excellent blogs. I enjoy reading them before any others and highly recommend them to you. They both have been much more faithful posters and great about sharing their lives and garden interests with us then I have been. ...And they both have better cameras, but I digress.

The other two, A Garden in the Desert and The Desperate Gardeners are both fairly strict garden blogs of the edible variety and where I like to visit when I'm in the mood for Az veggie garden info.

Never the less, I am fairly competitive. Since I don't have a chance at winning this thing straight up, I'm going to call on my enormous networking and Web 2.0 clan to create a landslide of votes and bury those two wonderful gals under tons of peat.
Four days left to buy votes.... Good luck Ladies! Bwa ha ha ha ha!


  1. congratulations and good luck... Cheers ~bangchik

  2. Good luck! Thanks for the compliment in your blog post. I haven't been a faithful poster this summer--too hot to do much in the garden, so not many posts. I voted for you--I won something last year and it's someone else's turn!

  3. Aiyana Wins! Congratulations! Water When Dry is a great blog!

  4. Found your blog by way of Blotanical, but not because you were a winner, which was back when I was just learning my way around Blotanical.
    Belated congratulations.

  5. I'm still learning my way around Blotanical.

    I haven't been as faithful posting this Summer and Fall. I volunteered to do some pro-bono projects and then I ended up being much busier then I though.

    I don't think people appreciate the irrigation posts as much as the plant info. So I am creating an irrigation and water conservation blog separately.

    Anyway, thanks for the comment and compliment. have a great weekend!
