The Great Outdoors – A finalist

The Blog Awards Finalist

Last night saw the long awaited finalists list for the Blog Awards Ireland 2013 released. We are delighted to have made it as a finalist in the Great Outdoors category which is sponsored by Agriland.

I wanted an image which summed up the great outdoors rather than just the finalists logo, and for me at this time of year it is the fabulous autumn colours. For that reason a simple but gorgeous leaf off the grape vine was the first choice.

The other finalists are all lovely bloggers and I have met or spoken to them all via social media. So here they are.

Greenside Up Dee is very well known to us through social media, the green awards and her excellent seed range which we supply. A definite contender as a finalist in another three categories.

Jardin Design I have yet to meet Lorna, but judging from her beautiful blog she knows her stuff about garden design and has some beautiful images.

Peter Donegan Landscaping The king of gardening blogs having been at it for over 5 years, he knows his onions. Peter is also well known as he designed a garden for Bloom and is involved in the fabulous Sodshow.

Zwartables Ireland I have yet to meet Suzanna, however I feel I know her Zwartables sheep very well from the gorgeous pictures updates on facebook and twitter. The blankets even made London Design Festival.

Come the 12th October one of the above lovely people or The Secret Garden will be awarded the title of Best Outdoor Blog. Who ever wins it is a fantastic achievement given over 3500 blogs entered the awards.

Looks like it will be a great night and congratulations have to go out to Lorna, Amanda, Beatrice, the judges and the many other people who have been involved.
