GO! Smell the flowers founders update!

Posted on May 20th, 2008 by Jim

Flower founder and creative genius Mike French has kindly updated the GO! Smell the flowers Founders video as the following 18 founders have confirmed they’re in the garden for the long haul and are featured in this clip:

With founders comes a variety of content from all over the world and we enjoy opening the garden to others! Our founders blogs are listed on the right hand column of this page so be sure to check each others blogs out.

The next stage is for us to bring on more regular readers and during this summer we’ll be introducing profile pages, a closer tie-up with Flora 2000 and their 500,000 strong database of customers that should make the garden buzz!

*Any other readers at GO! Smell the flowers, feel free to let us know if you’d like us to feature your blog over the summer in special posts – something we’d like to start doing again*

Any other features you’d like to see here? Just let us know and a BIG thanks to all the founders and regulars here at GO! Smell the flowers! Cheers!

  2. rashers says:

    Great. I wanna make a video. I’m starstruck!! :)

  3. Good video but why no pics of the founders?

    Nice one Mike – how long does something like this take to put together from scratch?!

    You could start hiring yourself out for this!

    • mike says:

      O days and days and days Arvind – I didn’t sleep – but it’s worth it for Flowers.

      Um okay

      truth

      about 4 hours work.

      :-)

  5. I love it!! But, I hope that both videos remain available to view. The first one is more informative and my husband wants to see it, but hasn’t had a chance. He saw the beginning and was hooked. I like the lego people at the end. Okay so, at 42 I still like Lego and receive the large Star Wars ones for gifts. My husband says, that when I have one to complete that it is the quietest he ever sees me besides sleeping. Oh, that is why I love the beginning of the first video with the Star Trek opening. I have a Star Trek quote of the day on my blog. I sound like a nerd!! Or is it a geek? I get them confused now that the meanings have changed…I’m so confused!!!

    I would like http://clinicallyclueless.blogspot.com to be featured in a post.

  6. Who said “mug shot”?
    ::looks around suspiciously::
    I dunno anything ’bout no mug shot … uh uh …

    Hey MIKE! Awesomeness … true awesomeness. You Rock!

  7. Wow! I really love the Muppets…I miss them, the old group. Okay, this dates me. I love Beaker and Dr. Bunsun Honeydew. Oh, how I miss it, but would it be the same. As usual, I like your video. It is always for some reason entertaining. I still like the first one better. I was surprised that the time flew by so quickly when I watched it because I was really skeptical.

    Wow! I’d love to have my Something Just To Start blog featured!! Yes, please.

          • Fertile Fish says:

            Like all the responses Fertile Fish mark 2, but a number of “my comments” are actually by an imposter, including those above.

            DA DA DA DERRRRRRRR!

          • Fertile Fish says:

            Scared of what the Big Man will do to you Fertile Fish no. 1?

            Shut up, I’m being a sharper Fertile Fish than you. You’ve gone lukewarm. Out with you Sterile Fish.

            Original Fish Bloke here,

            You are right mark 2, snigger snigger snigger, I am ashamed of my half hearted compliment to The Big Pompous Boss IC, and will not do it again.

            I was pi$$ed as a rat at the time.

          • Fertile Fish the One and Only says:

            Correct on all counts, except that you are no more Fertile Fish The Original. I am. That’s how much getting pissed costs!

            You can now get pi$$ed as a frog and try for the Sterile Fish title.

            Snigger snigger snigger arf arf

          • Gareth in China says:

            Boys, boys, boys……… You are boys right? No perhaps not, it’s the girls who squabble like this.

            But it’s really quite flattering that the girls are squabbling over me, but I’m sorry my dears, you see I’m a married man now.

            No pulling hair!

          • Fertile Fish says:

            No need to pull hair oh pompous one, I’m the real FF and ever more shall be.

            Mark 1.

          • Bridget Jones says:

            Oh Nemo! There’s no need to have an argument with yourself. Have you not been getting enough attention whilst I’ve been away? Ha!

            Glad to see the sense of reality still pervades the garden though! It’s almost as if I’ve never been away! Ha!

            ;) :)

          • Bridget Jones says:

            And where is Elton? Tell him his Aunty Bridget is here! Ha! ;)

          • Jim & Em says:

            Its not Aunty Bridget…

            Its the fertile fish imposter.

          • Don't give me attitude, I've got my own! says:

            Fertile Fish. Don’t you have a single original bone at all in your body?

            Your subservient attitude “I am ashamed of my half hearted compliment to The Big Pompous Boss IC, and will not do it again.” is more befitting of the washed out fish you have become. Down on your knees, there’s my boy. Martha get me whip!

          • Oh this is getting saucy. Who gets it then?

        • Jim n Em says:

          The blog is self moderated FF, as you well know that actually means anyone can say what they like, so its far from dictatorial.

          But will the real Fish stand up? The puerile diatribe nestling below all this perhaps suggests we should moderate! ;)

          • Jim n Em says:

            Oh yes, and sorry about the dreaded spam filter earlier, perhaps multiple contributors using the same name triggers it? 8)

          • Jim n Em says:

            Actually, that should read 2 comments up, “nestling above this…… :.

          • Jim & Em says:

            ***IMPOSTER ALERT – All Jim & Emm comments not in blue are not jim & Em…

            Fertile Fish the imposter.

            YAWN.

          • Fertile Fish says:

            Yawn effing YAWN!

            Like I said on the chinese post, you going to “out” the FF imposter’s IP address as well??

            Fair’s fair now.

          • Fertile Fish says:

            So Admin,

            If you are not prepared to “out” the FF imposter’s IP address (the imposter who started this charade) as you did with mine, then the only conclusion I can draw is that being an imposter and hijacking someone else’s name is fair game.

          • Don't give me attitude, I've got my own! says:

            Fish, stop being a sissy telling to admin! You gotta admit I’m doing a better job than you at being Fertile Fish!

            Snigger snigger snigger

          • Don't give me attitude, I've got my own! says:

            Oh bugger I forgot to change my name!

          • Fertile Fish says:

            Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah

            Yours sincerely,

            Don’t give me attitude, I’ve got my own!

            (Couldn’t be arsed changing my name)
