A Day's Work

On a bit of a whim today, I styled a new template. I had long contemplated doing an alternate winter design and realized today that I'd best get at it before winter left us. In point of fact, it does seem to be over in the southern and northwestern states, but we still have a way to go here in the capital of Canada.


In case it's not totally clear on your screen, the background tile consists of snowy grasses. There may be some tweaking to do here and there, and I haven't really looked at it closely in Internet Explorer yet, so it's quite possible that some major mods might be necessary. What I have done for the first time is use an image map to make the imaged title clickable.

Wow.. I like it. You are one very talented webmaster. And now that you mention it.. I see the grass peaking through the snow. :-)

Very nice. Snowy grasses, or grasses encased in ice are so pretty!

I like it! And even though on IE, it might look a bit ephemeral, I still like it!

I may just have to hire you to help me with redoing my blog!

I like it. Easy on the eyes, easy to read, and preserves that touch of whimsy we've come to expect for Raindrops.

Looks great! But I actually thought it was rather Spring-ish. The backdrop looks like rain coming down to wash off a dirty windshield. :-)

It looks good in Firefox. It displays your photos better.
