I'm very honoured to be able to post that my blog has been recognised by Jean Potuchek over at Jean's Garden, for a place in her Garden Blog of the month: January 2013, alongside The Scottish Country Garden and Landscape Notes.
My own blog is still in it's newborn phase and as such I want to express my thanks to Jean for her recognition and kind comments.
Jean's own blog is full of information backed up with some of the most amazing images and is definitely worth a visit - after which you will be hooked I guarantee.
Here's what jean had to say about The Tenacious Gardener
The Tenacious Gardener
is the newest of these blogs, only a few weeks old. As the title
indicates, this is a blog about the experience of gardening in
challenging conditions, specifically on the North Sea coast of the
Scottish Highlands. Linda, the author of this blog, tells us that she
already had some gardening experience before she and her family moved to
the Highlands, but found that gardening “in an exposed area slap bang
next to the North Sea Coast has demanded that I forget about many of the
blousy plants I enjoyed in England and acquaint myself with hardier,
more durable species.” The experiences recounted in her very engaging
blog posts include growing both flowers and vegetables and raising
animals (including killer chickens). I especially enjoy her accounts of
learning to garden using local natural resources like seaweed (see I need seaweed and Garlic & buckets of tea).
Jean found and chose my blog from Blotanical, a concise interactive directory of gardening blogs from around the world. It's also free to join!
