New Blog Layout

Hi all...

I'm playing with new layouts, since Blogger's offered some new ones! This new style offers us more room and a broader area to play in, along with a HUGE number of customizable backgrounds (if you're on Blogger, see for more info!

This will require a redesign of the header, of course, so it fits the wider format, but I hope you like where we're heading!

There will be more changes--I keep tweaking, and I see there are a few glitches, like the placement of our Flickr slideshow! But let me know what you think, OK?


  1. Where do you find the time? I checked the link out. Very interesting! I like that the format can be wider. Not sure about the image background. It's so pretty, I'm wondering if it would be too much of a visual conflict?

  2. I don't know, Pam, but I appreciate the feedback! I'll play around with it some more over the weekend and see what works best for us. The first one I had up looked like parchment paper, which was kind of neat...but overall the blog looked too beige. I understand you can tweak the color, so when I have time to explore more, I'll try that out...there are a LOT of nature and texture backgrounds...

  3. I agree with Pam about the background colour - a bit lemony...

  4. And I've changed it to be simplified and a nice almost-neutral spring green, without a graphic! Hope you like!

  5. Kate, the new design is lovely! I like the more open, airy feeling -- most appropriate for a nature blog! I like the background colors, too!


We'd love to hear from you, your questions, comments, observations! Please feel free to comment, feedback is important to us.
