Re: Thoughts about new Heronswood Web site


I find it slow to load, even with a cable connection.
It's too "cutesy" with the fake books, and the strong background colors
distract me from the plants.
I like having many cultivars on one page so I can make comparisons.

I hate, hate, hate that the website does not let me enlarge the font to a
size I can see to read. This last is my pet peeve. I want control of text
size so that I can either skim a whole page quickly for content, or enlarge
the text enough to read it comfortably.

It also bugs me to have a big red "Your Cart is empty" blaring at me. I know whether my cart is empty. Grrrr!

For those of you familiar with the old site I'm curious what you think
is good and bad about the new one that I can apply to my site and others.

I obviously already have my own opinions that I'll share later -- I'm
curious what some of you guys think.

Their site is at
