We're Finalists!

Extra! Extra! Town Mouse and Country Mouse are very happy to report that they're finalists in the prestigious Blotanical Awards for the following categories:
  • Best Drought Tolerant Blog
  • Best Native Blog
  • Best California Blog
Blotanical, kind of the Facebook of the gardening world -- except everyone is everyone else's friend -- will have voting for the next 4 days. I wrote about Blotanical in my The Wonderful World of Garden Blogs post, so I won't repeat myself. But I do want to encourage Blotanical members who read this blog to vote (for us!), and non-members to consider joining.

Competition is stiff; I'm always amazed how many really great blogs are out there, and I learn so much from other bloggers. We figure even if we don't win an award, being in fifth place is kind of like winning the Compost Medal. So we're thrilled we've made it this far. (But we won't mind winning either).

And now, read the next post, in which Country Mouse contemplates riparian habitats, and the local natives conundrum...
