Hello there What the BLOG!? member! I wanted to give you a quick update on What the BLOG!?

We are now into our 4th round of the Ass Hat Awards! This week's theme is Celebrity Ass Hats... check it out to get details and sign up if you want to play.

Remember, participation in the Ass Hat Awards is not required to be a member of What the BLOG!?, but it sure is a lot of fun to play!

So... if you are at all interested in participating in the Ass Hat Awards... you MUST sign up for our NotifyList to get Ass Hat Awards update reminders! This makes things convenient for you AND for us. You'll find the NotifyList sign-up on the top right of our mainpage. Don't fret... this is not spam. We are fellow bloggers and not trying to sell you anything. These are just emails that give you a reminder everytime the Ass Hat Awards & What the BLOG!? makes an update to the page.

Otherwise how will you know when we have a NEW contest!?
(Besides checking back here every two seconds, which is mildly inconvenient.)

Okay, okay. We're done bugging you now. :)

OMG your garden is beautiful! You've done a wondeful job and should be very proud of your garden paradise. :)

BTW don't you hate it when someone leaves you a comment and it has nothing to do with your post ie the comment before me? Grrr I hate that.

Oh yes ... please don't forget to visit other Green thumb members, that's what this is all about. :)

I have to agree w/talj the garden looks very good.

Glad I stopped by for Green Thumb Sunday.

What a gorgeous garden. I can just imagine relaxing there.
It is a chilly weekend here and my gardening has been inside, potting up canna root and other plant roots.
Happy gardening.

Take care.

Genie said...

Wow -- that's quite a garden! Great photo, and thanks for posting it. I love that there's a person in your photo, too -- the interaction between people and nature is very important, of course!

What a delightful garden to relax in. The photo captures just that. Lovely! Visiting for Green Thumb Sunday.

Hello again, Ruth. I've not had time to blog yet, but I'm slowly catching up with all my blogger friends and what you have all been up to over the past ten days. I loved the look around Lynn and Steve's many interesting areas, great pots, love the meandering path and those fab tulips about to open. The Ass Hat story had me laughing out loud...I'm not anti-men, but to me it seemed like the kind of thing a man would do! The features in the school garden are so the river with the bridge and the special seat for sitting on when you need a friend. The fasciation in your fritillarias and rudbeckias had me fascinated....and I'd love one of those solar dragonflies...must keep an eye out at the Garden Centres. Best of all is the photo of Mick. Love oozes from your blog, Ruth.

He will always be with you there, I truly believe that.

Sending you my love.

I think that is one of the most beautiful private gardens I've ever seen. Looking at it gives me something aspire to.
Take care

Your garden is one of the most fabulous gardens I've seen. It's nice to see your garden in 2004 with your husband looking so content.
I look forward to seeing your 2007 garden.

Dear Ruth,

What a pleasure to visit your blog.
It looks like going into paradise.
We have a liking in common what refer plants. How good to have a outdoor place full of plants where our eyes feel happy observing the different colours first thing in the morning and look up the blue of the sky. It's a happyness to live yhis way isn't it.

Tender hug for you both


I am to put a post for you...
