The Garden Community for Garden Lovers

100 ,000 up.


Just noticed that nearly 100,000 photos been submitted on GOY ..congratulations to all an amazing total really enjoyed them – well not seen all obviously – some truly stunning photos .

Maths never my strong point but new members need not despair if you are able to click 5 likes a minute every minute of every day you should be able to get through them all in 2 weeks ..really should get out more ..

Would be hard to be exclusive as some great photos ..some of my favourites would be -

Gardens – Spritzhenry , Flowercrazy , Davids Chocolate

Nature – Flowercrazy , Tastyg – those hummingbirds wow

Most improved photographer – Clarice you never thought you d get the hang of it now look …

Water features – Dawn , NoseyPotters creations .

Humour – Irish , Toto and many more .. a smile priceless , thank you

Favourite member who probably doesnt know he is one – Milkys husband Ray.

Sure many others could be added and other categories included ..suggestions ?

Oh yes Sandra dont always thank such members as often as should due to so much here and work commitments - hopefully this blog will go some way to address that ..

Yes Greenthumb should probably qualify under most dedicated category those temps amazing ..brrr and Mikec who lifts his plants and stores them in his cellar ..

I agree Sandra. One notable omission from your list is yourself who has delighted all of us with your great pics and blogs. Thanks you so much.

I too love the photos some of them are really stunning all originals, while others show ingenuity. Also good way to see what others are growing. I have got plants just because I saw the pic on here.

Thanks Sandra yes OBs blogs are great I d give him a special award for high speed blogs and photos more in a month than I ve managed in 18 months lol How on earth did he do them so well so quickly ?

Special mention of course to Jacque and all her sterling ork on putting photos in categories ..

Thanks Toto but could hardly include myself when attempting to recognise others ..fairly significant milestone isnt it ? mind boggling amount.

I agree Amy! I also nominate OB (DAN!) cos I just love his blogs, Indy for his sense of the ridiculous, Digger, just cos! Spritzhenry, Terratoonie & Crazydi for all the advice, help & encouragement & Fluff for her bravery!
Best newcomer for me has to be Romneya! I've probably missed loads out, but if I missed you, I'll put you in my Oscars acceptance speech!!

But I agree wholeheartedly Ob's and your own blogs are stupendous how you get those birds to sit still for you I'll never know.
