What do you think? After several trials of switching back to my old design, I decided to make the change permanent.

Does the tree trunk banner look blurry to you?
3rd wave blog has a fun post on bike art that I enjoyed doing.

I really like the look of your new blog much better. No the tree trunk is not blurry. I especially like that the photos are larger. You put a lot of work into this. Hope it gets officially recognized!

I like the look, orchid, and I didn't see any blurring on the banner. I also really like the color you chose as a background; it gives a good contrast for your pictures and is restful on the eyes.

Thx for the feedback so far!

I have no clue why the pics look bigger with this design template 'cause I didn't change the pic sizes at all.

Oh Orchid just saw rhis and checked your blog...Several things, that trree is gorgeous and would definitely make a "tree hugger" out of me. Your photos are all so clear and what bright colors, just beautiful.
Now I tried to subscribe but it kept saying: please enter a valid email. I was entering a valid email so not sure whats up with that. The only thing with your opening picture is I wanted to see even more of that fantastic scenery, lol!

To subscribe to any wordpress blog, one does have to type in their email address and then click on the Subscribe button.

A message is then logged in the blog owner/blogmaster that someone is subscribing to their wordpress blog.

Every time I post a new article and it gets published, every subscriber automatically gets an email alert and alink to new article..if they are interested.

Hope you keep on writing for your blog. When one has time, it's lots of fun. Right now, just going a little nuts. I'm working on a 4th blog which will be released publicly late next month.

I love the new look, Orchid.

Where is that tree? Every time I look at it, I imagine it is in Stanley Park in Vancouver...

That is such an awesome park. I've only been to that park twice, but would love to spend more time there.

I like the new look for its width and hence, seems to highlight photos alot more.

Tree was actually in a demonstration garden at local university. On the grounds there's a wonderful large garden with old growth soaring trees here and there.

Stanley Park has its own majestic tree stands.
