WordCount Blogathon Housekeeping - I Go Green!

 Where did all the rain go?

That's what you may be saying after viewing my blog this morning.  I've done a bit of long-overdue freshening up of my blog, in preparation for the 2013 WordCount Blogathon, which starts tomorrow.

It's not too late to register but you must act today.  There are over 180 of us participating. Here's the experience of one alumnus. (You can still participate if you don't register today but you are not eligible for any of the prizes.)

But back to my housekeeping.  I've had the "rain on the window" template (symbolizing the terrible summer of 2011, with record rainfall, two tropical storms and one massive flood) for too long. Out with the rain and in with the green!

As so much of my blogging involves gardening/flower photography, I decided to go with Blogger's Dandelion template (it's not called that, but that is what it is.)


Let me know what you think.
