My German friend Linde has always been delighted at my use of the word “lovely“.
“It’s so English!” she would say.
Is it? Perhaps.
Sadly, after 18 years of life in another country, speaking another language, I no longer use this adjective for expressing pleasure as often as I should like.
Yet I obviously THINK it; last week I had a lovely surprise: a nomination for the “One Lovely Blog Award”… and my first thought was “How lovely!”
I love this new world of words and pictures I have discovered in the last few months, and the support we all give each other is energizing and inspiring.
A very big THANK YOU to Strawberry Indigo at
for nominating me!
Strawberry Indigo is a wonderful writer and writes about so many different things; I particularly like her social commentary page, and her lovely posts on life in general, and plants of course … and the “fresh quotes” are great too!
The rules for this award are simple:
- Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award and his or her blog link.
- Pass the award to other newly discovered blogs.
- Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.
I am passing on this award to three blogs that I have only recently discovered:
A Strawberry Patch
Wonderful photos and posts on nature and gardening, as well as some lovely poetry.
Anna writes about gardening and plants, with the added extras of the occasional seasonal poem and lovely photos.
Diane combines beautiful art photography with atmospheric and uplifting quotes. Simply wonderful. (Or should I say “lovely“!)
Have a look at all these sites, and enjoy some top-class pictures and prose!
