Gary's 100th Post and Village in Bloom result.

I am amazed to find that this is my 100th post on this blog as as it is I want to say thank you to all of you who have been reading it and giving me feedback, I love reading your comments. Those of you who read it and don't leave comments, please don't be shy and say hello.

There are also some people I want to say a special thank you too, first Sharron who puts up with me doing this and enjoys pointing out my speeling mistooks. Out there in the blogosphere there are some fellow bloggers who deserve a mention. Firsty Victoria at Victoria's Backyard who has been really supportive since I started, next I must thank Lucy at Pictures Just Pictures whose outstanding photographs have inspired me to work much harder on my own. I also want to thank Esther at Esthers boring garden blog for being anything but boring and for making me think and laugh, finally I want to thank VP at Vegplotting for the inspiration and feedback. I also want to say thank you to all the members of Blotanical for your support.

Now the big news the village won a Silver Gilt in the best small village section of Anglia in Bloom. Congratulations to everyone in the village reading this for all your efforts.


  1. Good morning and congratulations with your 100th post! I follow your blog and love it. Happy autumn to you Gary!

  2. Aw, thanks, Gary, it's been a pleasure following your blog. And congratulations on the Anglia in Bloom result - I know how much you've put into this, so you must be really pleased.

  3. Congratulations on your 100th post! I enjoy reading your blog, especially seeing the pictures. That's a great one today! And well done on the Anglia in Bloom award. Val

  4. Gary! I've just read this! And with such a wonderful flower attached! May I copy it and put it in my sidebar for a couple of weeks? (Showing off kind of thing?)


  5. Esther's just come round to tell me. I heard her running along the pavement and did wonder whether to pretend I was out. She generally comes on the cadge for coffee. (Says she can't find a decent source. Well, if I can buy nice coffee, why can't she go to the same shop?)

    Glad I didn't though because I would have missed reading this just yet. Summer has got us both rather left behind with everything bloggish.

    But thank you so much, Gary. And to be mentioned in the same breath as Esther and Victoria! (I may complain about Esther's eccentricities but I am in a bit of awe of her, none the less. So many words!) And Victoria - the Best of British (Garden) Bloggers!

    (I might have said 'Wow' there but it's an over-used word and Esther would be on about it for months if I'd dared to write it. Such a fuss about three letters!)

    Keep blogging, Gary. You've batted your century and now you're heading for a grand slam.


  6. Congratulations Gary.

    VP's a good mention too. Her industry is incredible. The amount of work and knowledge that goes into her blog is quite remarkable. A one woman on-line magazine!


Thank you for your comments.
