Sorry, link is inactiveWorldwide Gardening Topsite ~ Usually ranked in top 20
As of July 2002 Worldwide Topsites announced the closure of their Gardening Portal. Unfortunately it appears it did not have enough traffic or sponsors to keep it open. Topsites ranks websites based on the number of visitors to and from each site and its standings are updated automatically every half hour.

2001-2002 Golden Web Award2001-2002 Golden Web Award
From the International Association of Webmasters and Designers (IAWMD)

The Golden Web Awards is supposedly presented by an association of professionals to those websites whose creativity and integrity on the web achieved levels of excellence deserving their recognition. If you would like an impressive-looking awards graphic for your website too, apply for it and you will most likely be a winner. I haven't heard of any website failing to meet their "standards of excellence." In other words, the thrill I got as a fledgling web page designer receiving the Golden Web Award quickly faded when I found out that it is regarded as worthless in the field. I keep it here with the real awards I am honored to have received to pass on what I learned. Check things out, like I did, before you spend any money on their awards banquet or buy a framed award certificate. You could impress your friends and family with this one; but, don't expect to be treated seriously as a web designer if you put it on your resume.

Pictures of John's Rose Garden by Susan FordMy Favorite Garden ~ By Susan Ford
This is not actually an award it's a complement paid to my father by Susan Ford about the real John's Rose Garden before its Internet version was even created. She has a whole web page dedicated to pictures of Dad's garden. She picked his as her "favorite garden" from several she toured in Northern California in April of 1997. Thank you Susan, I wish Dad could thank you in person.
