Sunday, January 10, 2010 Puttering in Helen’s Haven™

As punishment to last week’s complaint of cold weather in the 40s, I was given even worse weather this week where it stayed in the 20s and 30s.  It was a cold week in Helen’s Haven™.

Gardening With Confidence™ was recognized as Ecosystem Gardening’s 2009 Garden of the Year.

Gardening With Confidence™ was mentioned in Susan Reimer’s Garden Variety’s Blog again this month. Thank you Baltimore Sun!

And Lisa Gustavson with GetInTheGarden listed her favorite wilidlife bloggers in Follow the Leaders.

Thanks for mentioning Gardening With Confidence™; it’s an honor to be mentioned along with so many great, passionate wildlife bloggers.
