Very excited to be notified that STG has been selected as a top ten finalist in the Gardening category for the second annual Better Homes and Gardens Blogger Awards! Finalists were chosen by Better Homes and Gardens from over 3,000 reader entries!

Thank you for all the voting you did last week.  Though STG didn’t win, it was a fantastic surprise to be nominated!  The two winning blogs were The Horticult (editor’s choice), coming out of my old stomping ground, Southern California, and Digging (reader’s choice), which hails from sunny Texas.  Congrats to Chantal & Ryan and Pam! I look forward to seeing more of their gardens in the season ahead!
