I salute you and thank you

My blog is now listed in the finals of  Blotanical 2009 garden blog awards. I have made it into the top five in the best South American Blog  and the Best Landscaping Blog. Voting has begun and will end  around Tuesday next week September 29th 2009. I would like to thank you all who have voted for me and those who will vote for me. It has been difficult for me in the nomination process,  to choose the blogs I think that are deserving an award. There are many many good blogs and I am happy to say many of my favorites have made it into the finals. I have made my selection (it was tough) of my favorites and have to make a few more while there is still time.
