My, what big eyes you have!
Tweak: to adjust; fine tune.
I don't think this little skipper needs to fine tune anything, do you? He's just there to get your attention, since I don't have anything to illustrate my subject matter. (Read to the end though, and you'll find links to pictures.)
Tweaking is what I've been doing to my blog since I became serious about posting to it sometime last summer. Until that time, "Ginny's garden" was a convenient way to share some pictures with a few family members and friends. My original goal was to use the blog as an online diary and plant record, primarily to record what was blooming when and to give myself some perspective on how things were changing over time.
But then I found Blotanical and other garden blogs and was inspired. I changed my header and my layout. I added gadgets to my sidebar. I took many more pictures - so many more that my husband complained that I was wearing out the camera. (I bought my own camera in August - though I still like to use our shared SLR sometimes.)
And recently I added additional pages. You'll see the tabs just under the header:
- Garden Diary: This page is a record of what I've been doing in the garden and what the weather has been like. It's in reverse chronological order with the newest entries first. Maybe not too interesting for readers, but useful for me.
- Blog Hopping: This pages contains links to all the blogs linked together for blog hop. Check this out and join in.
- What grows in my garden: Here are pictures with identification of many of the plants in my garden. Most of the pictures were taken at the peak season, so the plants are shown at their best. Unfortunately, I was pretty far into this page before I thought of how nice it would be to have the plants in alphabetical order. Or perhaps in seasonal order. But they're neither - they're just random. Maybe I'll redo this one over the winter.
- Resources: You'll find links to web resources on this page. Many of them are resources especially helpful for gardeners in the Carolinas, but there are some general ones as well. I'll be adding to this page as I find more resources. If you have resource recommendations, please pass them on!
