Thank You Jane Marie

It's such a wonderful feeling to be acknowledged by a peer for your efforts. Thank you Jane Marie at Thyme For Herbs for bestowing A Maritime Gardener with the Arte y Pico award. I am truly honored. Jane Marie is a fellow daylily lover (and kindred spirit:)).
There are 5 rules for this award:
1. You have to pick 5 blogs that you consider deserving of this award for their creativity,design, interesting material,and which contribute to the blogging community, no matter what language.
2. Each award has to have the name of the author and also a link to his/her blog to be visited by everyone.
3. Each award winner has to show the award and put the name and link to the blog that has given him/her the award itself.
4. The award winner and the one who has given the prize has to show the Art y Pico blog so that everyone will know the origin of this award.
5. To show these rules.

I have visited many creative and artistic blogs, and it's very difficult to narrow down the choice. Some may have already been chosen for this award in the past. I would like to thank the 5 bloggers that I've chosen for their wonderful contributions, and invite them to chose 5 recipients of their own if they so chose.

The 5 blogs that I would like to share with you include:

Nancy at Soliloquy for her reflective poetry, exquisite photography, and her maritime flare.

Zoe at Garden Hopping for her eloquent writing and inspiring photography. I always learn something from my visits to Zoe's blog.

Jean at Pill Bug's Point Of View for her beautiful paintings and photos. Jean is a true maritimer at heart.

Janece at No Ordinary Moment for her beautiful photography and thoughtful positive reflections on life.

Sandy at Gardenpath for her wonderful photography and fabulous garden macro shots.

Thank you all for sharing your wonderful talents.

That says it all really. Many congratulations to you on well deserved recognition!

Bit gobsmacked that you have selected me to receive it too though. Thank you so much for the lovely compliment.

Oh Chey. I just checked your blog and found my name. What an honour indeed! Thank you for reading and supporting by work. Yours was one of the first blogs that got me interested in doing this so it is extra nice to be acknowledged by you. Thank you. Merci!

Chey, you are very deserving of this award. I love following along with the daylilies of course, but also the other content is fun to read.
I am also appreciative of the title of your blog. I was reading along on the top 200 posts at Blotanicals and my name jumped out at me. That was a nice surprise.
It was fun to read the comments amd posts of your chosen bloggers. I now have found some new ones to read. I guess that's what giving awards is all about :)
