I am also chuffed and slightly amazed as Mrs Be of 'Carrot and Kids' has given me an award for my blog it is unexpected especially as I didn't realise such things existed. What is great is to receive it from Mrs Be as her blog is so inspiring. I struggle to grow things with two kids and she produces lots of veg with the, err, assistance of five kids and runs a school gardening club - now that is what I call a mummy gardener how does she find time to blog?

The award is the 'arte y pico'

There are some rules that accompany the award:

1. Choose 5 blogs you consider deserving of this award for their creativity, design, interesting material, and contribution to the blogging community, regardless of the language.

2. Each award should have the name of the author and a link to his/her blog to be visited by everyone.
3. Each award winner should show the award and put the name and link to the blog that presented him/her with the award.
4. The award winner and the one who has given the award should show the Arte y Pico blog so everyone will know the origin of this award. Translated, it means "the peak of art."
5. Show these rules.

So onto the difficult bit, those who I wish to award with the arte y pico. I think that some may/must have been awarded before;

I love matrons very robust get on with it and give it a try style to life, gardening and bloging you can find it
down on the allotment.
Celia Hart is an artist and garden blogger with a love of heritage plants at purple podded peas her linocuts look fantastic and she has inspired me to give printing a go when I get some time ha ha (I last did some in school!) I also hope to visit Celia in person as part of Cambridge open studios.
I recently stumbled upon pencil and leaf which is just the most beautiful blog, if only I could really draw. I know that I will visit and visit this blog.
Then there is earthwoman I think she chooses to grow the things I like, but does it much better than I do.

Finally, I am going to keep back one of the awards for a little while because there are lots of fantastic blogs that I have only just found so I have some reading to do, if I am to do the award justice.

Thank you for that award and for pointing out some new and interesting looking blogs. I'm looking forward to looking through pencil and leaf, that looks like a real delight.
