20 July, 2009 gallery additions

This week there are a lot of photos from our local Master Gardener's Idea Garden. The rest have been sitting in the queue for a while and are finally making it in to the gallery. Unfortunately, the queue is emptying, so I'd better go shoot some new pics before I run out!

I'm continuing to work on a database restructuring which will make things much cooler. Hopefully we'll see the benefits within a month or so! At that point I'll start going through the gallery page by page and verifying/updating all plant names and photos.

I also have an idea for a page redesign that I think will make the gallery much more useful, visually appealing, and easier to navigate. I may do that before the database restructure — we'll see. If I buy a new hard drive for my laptop I can run hort.net anywhere I go and design/test changes without impacting the new site, so that will speed up the processes too.

I'm loving this cool weather and it's really extending my planting time in the garden. I hope you are all enjoying it too!
