I very honestly don’t believe I’ll ever win a shiny thing for this blog. That’s not some tale of woe played to a backdrop of violin soundings. More, it’s always been there, there abouts since I started writing it way back in 2007.
The thing is this landscaping blog really isn’t a blog, for blogging sake. It’s more what I do that is related to the business that is Peter Donegan the horticulturist, great outdoors lover etc and/ or Donegan Landscaping and the gardens I make. And I think it’s better for all concerned I stick to what I am best at.
In short, if I am busy outside, or there’s been snow for an elongated period of time, I may not or indeed I may have some time to put some notes and images up here.
Nonetheless, it is very much an honour to be noted up there with the very best of them. And it did make me smile. I like smiling. And thanks you for reading. And for being very lovely.
