The Adam Pasco Award

Most Blogs have a photograph in their sidebar: mostly, though not exclusively, of the author.

Readers of Gardeners World Magazine will notice that the (very knowledgeable) editor, Adam Pasco features a lot. Photographs of Adam dibbing, Adam composting, Adam tweaking his greenhouse, Adam mowing etc etc.

In his honour we have established the Adam Pasco Award For Most Interesting Self-Portrait on a gardening website or Blog.

The Judges are not necessarily looking for beauty but for originality.

I rather like The Gnome's because it makes him look just a little bit, er, loco ... in a good way. And there's plants in it.

Rick Anderson has an interesting blog dealing with the technical side of design and revealing a slight (and not unhealthy) obsession with stone, water and fireplaces.
Well worth a look. Can't work out which category to put him in so am voting for his Photograph.
Bearded and with a truck (I think, it is very small)

Frankie at Veg Plot has a cracking sidebar photograph (unless you actually wanted to pick her out of an identity parade)

Boo hoo - Tone beat me to it. I particularly like the inventive use of a gardening product to introduce Frankie to her readers. It makes me smile every time I look at her blog.

Not really a self-portrait, but I love these cows.
