Two very bloggy awards!

How lucky is that?

Van Gogh’s Ear Award
The first award is from Chris from Chris Photo Nature (Thank you, Chris!). Chris’s blog is very interesting. He is based out of Iceland and always has a nice series of photos. 

In keeping with the Van Gogh artist/painter theme, I’m passing this award on to two artist/painters:

Painted Thoughts blog
The Fenlandwalker – Birding and Countryside Blog

Kreative Blogger Award
The second award is from Laure of Painted Thoughts blog and is called the Kreative Blogger award (Thank you, Laure!). Laure is a fantastic artist. I read her blog every day for artistic inspiration.  

I’m passing this award on to:

Heather of the Hills
Roy’s World
The Early Birder
Pittswood Birds

Chris said...

Hi Kelly,
You deserved these awards. Your blog is fascinating and we can learn a lot about the wolrd around you just by reading your posts. So congrats and keep on!

Warren Baker said...

Well done on the awards Kelly! Thanks for passing one onto me - very flattered!

In answer to your patch question, you left on my comments.

A 'Patch' can be of any size, in any place. It can be local or far away. The aim is to visit your patch as much as possible, so it's better nearer, than further. Also it wants to be of a size that can be covered in a few hours, and has some varied habitat. It can be very rewarding if you collect all your sightings over a piriod of time!

Congrats on the Van Gogh’s Ear Award Kelly. As everyone says it is well deserved for your very interesting & informative blog.

I'm gobsmacked & astounded to be given an artistic award - THANK YOU for passing this on.

Kelly said...

Kallen...thank you very much!! :-)

Laure...thanks...and I've learned a lot from your site too. You're a very inspiring artist.

Roy...thank you!

Bren...Thank you! I did stop by. Loved the yellow daffs and all the gardening info!

Roy...Thank you....passing an award back to you, since you passed my first award to me!

Chris...thank you for giving me the award! I always love your posts.

Warren...thanks and congrats! and thanks for describing the meaning of "patch." I think it's a great term. I need to get a larger patch...right now, the rookery is my most regular patch, but it's more of a patchkin. :-)

FAB...thanks...yep, you and Warren have the creative beauty in the details, plus I've been visiting your sites from the very beginning. You two always see more birds in one outing than I see in an entire month...

Heather said...

Congrats to you Kelly, and thank you for nominating me. That is very kind of you. I will display the badge with pride.

Kelly said...

...thanks Heather. You do a lot of creative stuff on your blog. It's always fun!
