It's a Major Award

I don't think the Garden Writers give leg lamps for awards, but it would be cool if they did.

Yesterday I received word that one of my blog posts had earned a Silver Award in the Garden Writers Association’s annual media awards. The post is self-described as “A rambling discourse written over several days about dried beans, home gardens, and the creative impulse.”

The post was entered in a relatively new category for electronic writing. The great thing about the GWA awards is that the association announces all the silvers in spring (the number of silvers in each category varies) and the big winner in each category is not announced until the GWA’s conference, which this year is in beautiful Raleigh, N.C., in September. In other words: Road Trip!

  1. Congratulations, Mary. It’s every blogger’s dream to be recognized and awarded for a rambling discourse. Yours, of course, happens to be good.

  2. Thanks, everyone, for the good wishes! Coleen (with one l), welcome to the blog. It looks like we are neighbors in SE Mn, so I’ll add your blog to my blogroll. Colleen, (with two lls), I tried to buy your book yesterday, but it had not arrived yet. Any idea when it will be in stores?

  3. I read about your award and came over the read the post in question. It’s lovely! I’m out in CA and am adding you to my Midwestern/Northern blogroll.
