Website changes ahead

– Posted in: About this site

I have just upgraded WordPress again. This time it combined link categories and post categories, so quite a few things need to be tinkered with. I will also be changing my theme shortly. Actually, I am going to change the theme first and then tinker, otherwise I’ll be tinkering twice. Sigh. The bottom line is, the front page should be fine, once I change the theme, but the rest of the site might be strange until I tinker with it. Here goes!

About the Author

Kathy Purdy is a colchicum evangelist, converting unsuspecting gardeners into colchicophiles. She would be delighted to speak to your group about colchicums or other gardening topics. Kathy’s been writing since 4th grade, gardening since high school, and blogging since 2002.

Now, the digging and dividing of perennials, the general autumn cleanup and the planting of spring bulbs are all an act of faith. One carries on before the altar of delayed gratification, until the ground freezes and you can’t do any more other than refill the bird feeder and gaze through the window, waiting for the snow. . . . Meanwhile, it helps to think of yourself as a pear tree or a tulip. You will blossom spectacularly in the spring, but only after the required period of chilling.

Kathy, whatever you did, it looks fine now~

Okay, I fixed the Library Thing widget, but everything still leans to the left in IE. I guess I’m calling it good enough unless I stumble across a solution.

Annie, for some reason the Library Thing widget in the footer is not going directly under the flickr widget, but is trying to squeeze alongside it, making the page v-e-ry wide. Until I figure out how to fix it, just use the horizontal scroll bar at the bottom of your screen to center the page in your browser window.

Hi Kathy,
I’m also seeing your snowdrops amazingly locked within ice & snow. The type in the comment box is easy to read.
The only thing that seems a little odd is that the left margin is very close to the text, with the letters right up against the monitor’s edge., while the right side shows several inches of white. I’m using IE to view this page.

And the tree trunks and the seed head…….keep it up!

Mary Ann February 28, 2007, 9:56 pm

Oh. Wow, just saw the branches with the snow. Another WINNER!

Mary Ann February 28, 2007, 9:55 pm

Wow! I got the snowdrops in the snow and it is absolutely gorgeous! I love it. Keep up your excellent work and tinkering.

My company left today so I will be able to pay attention now.

I do like the image of the tree limbs with snow. Hope you are having fun. I wish I enjoyed doing stuff like this.

Kathy… it looks like you are making good progress. The header image I got this evening is very nice.

Kathy Purdy February 27, 2007, 9:35 pm

Craig–there are 5 header images supposedly displayed at random, plus one assigned to “About” and one assigned to “Archives”. All the photos were taken by a member of my family, but I don’t believe any of the current ones were taken by me. I did need to crop them, as you might imagine. More later, I still have cleaning up to do!

Goferit Kathy – 🙂 Thinkin’ of ya – been there, doin’ that. I’m still enjoying all these plugins and css file switches.

I’m looking forward to your changes, especially if it means a chance to see more of your photographs, like the branches with snow (above) or the Galanthus arising I spied on another page. I don’t know what the final version (is there such a thing?) will be but right now I am awash in your pale green So that’s what you’ve been up to!
