Hi Cherry,
Thanks for using the Help Desk.
You wrote: love the new set up under "NEW BLOGGERS PICKS " it is much easier to read and the flags are great .. sure hope all of the PICKS LIST are going to look like this really soon. thanks again for a great place I have been having a blast . Cherry

Cheers Cherry. I tried this new look just to guage the reactions from members. Yours is the only comment so far so I shall wait and see how others respond to it before moving it across to all the other Picks. Glad you're having a blast.


  1. Cherry, yes you are right, it is easier to read the picks and I think it looks better too:)
    I had a nice stroll in your delightful garden with help of your slide show. I saw your pink abutilon it is very pretty. You have really a wonderful,cottage garden with lots of different plants which makes it so interesting. We have a similar gardening style and I recognised many of your plants.

  2. I agree with you Cherry, it is easier to read. I like the flags it really helps to see where everyone is in the world, especially as it affects the gardens and plants so much. I appreciate it when locations and a bit about the garden/gardener is easy to find at the top of the blog.

    I enjoy reading your blog, thank you.

    Best wishes Sylvia (England)

  3. Cherry I see what you mean now about the pick list : )
    YES ! it is great and I will comment to Stuart that the format is much easier to read.
    I love the fact that you don't mind two other little furry souls who just eat and sleep AND keep snakes at bay ! LOL .. people who abandon animals are beyond my comprehension .. I just can't believe they use animals as disposable entertainment.
    You are a good soul Cherry .. these little ones will appreciate you forever for that ! : )

  4. Cherry - I don't find it easier to read and I've suggested something that hopefully will keep both of us happy. Here's what I've said over @ Blotanical:


    Perhaps I use the lists in a different way to others - I like to scan down it quickly to find articles I like the look of. I can cope with the red star but I find the addition of the flags on the new blogs list is putting things out of alignment just a bit too much. How about putting the flags after the Blog name and article title instead - if that's possible? That way you keep both me and Cherry happy?

  5. Hi there, I like the new set up apart from yesterday when there seemed to be adverts every few blog entries, which I found very distracting.

    The text and flags certainly stand out more.

    I have emailed Stuart as you requested


Thank you so much for stopping by and taking the time to leave a comment. It is so much fun to read everyone's thoughts on my ramblings .. I love to go blog hopping so look for me to be visiting you soon.
hugs, Cherry
