The Versatile Blogger Award

Few days ago my new online friend, pinay e-motion, has left me a comment on my post here says:

Hi Inge,

Hi, I nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award. I think your post is great. You have impressed me not only in your ability to discuss different interesting topics in your blogs, but have also captivated me in your ability to capture different great images through your genius manipulation of the lens. I hope you’ll consider accepting it and the acceptance rule: Versatile Blogger Award.

Have a nice day!

Oh wow! She’s really surprising me since we’ve just met online less than a month until now. We had a little chat when we met first time and apparently she could speak Indonesian, my mother language, though she’s from Philippine! How nice is that?! So we ended up ‘speaking’ (or I should say writing) in Indonesian and her writing is very good!

Now she’s nominated me for The Versatile Blogger Award (VBA) with other 14 bloggers here. What an honour! Thank you very much for the nomination, pinay e-motion!

I dedicated this post for all my followers as well as I’ve reached a hundred followers until now. Many thanks to all of you!

I hope that my nominee-bloggers would like to pass this award to other bloggers and follow the VBA rules as follows:

  1. You must give credit to the person that has nominated you and create a link to their blog in your post.

  2. You must create a list of 15 blogs that you enjoy most and link to those as well. Then you must go and tell them you have nominated them. That means if you do not have 15, you cannot do this step. If you do not complete this step, then you cannot claim this award.

  3. Finally, you must create a list of seven things about yourself.

Crocus Flowers are Welcoming Spring


Freesia. Yes, this flower has wowed many friends of mine when I posted its picture on Facebook two days ago. Some of them asked me what that flower is called and whether they are a family of tulip. Unfortunately I couldn’t answer any of those question because I really didn’t know its name and family. I made a promise to find it out later at the supermarket since lots of plants seeds been selling due to the spring is coming. So I went to ASDA supermarket and finally found its seeds there and from now on I know what the flower is called! It is Freesia Crocus!

Soon after I came home I browsed on internet to find it out more about this flower.

White Freesia flowers. I called it Three Sweet Girls.

According to an article on eHow: What is the Meaning of Freesia Flower, this flower is native to Africa and named after Friedrich Heinrich Theodor Freese, a German physician.

This flower is a symbol of multiple sentiments such as friendship, innocence, thoughtfulness, perseverance and being high-spirited. Also this flower is one of the most fragrant flowers and so used in perfumes, bath oils, soaps, lotions, scented oil, etc.
