Working on the website!

  I have been relearning basic website design as fast as I can!  It is complicated!  I could not figure out why my DreamWeaver program kept uploading files to the wrong folders on the server.  The server is the place that publishes your website, so to speak.  And it has to have all of the necessary files.
  So every time you make changes, you have to upload them to the server.
  And every time I did this, they would wind up in the wrong place.
  Today I relearned why and fixed it.
  Plus, I updated the shipping page, the Species page, the Gift Shop page, and most important for now, the Lavender Wands page.
  I have not yet added PayPal buttons so you can make purchases of lavender wands directly from the website.  But that is next!  It involves inserting code into very specific places.  Makes me nervous!  Because I am not proficient in html code.
 Meanwhile, here is the update page:  LavenderWands.html

Fuchsia boliviana Seedlings!

600 seedlings are doing great!  As soon as they are big enough and if the weather is safe to ship them in, a new PayPal button will be added to the revamped website.  So excited!

New Website Is Up And Running!

I was finally able to relearn enough about Dreamweaver CS5.5 to get the website back up and updated. It wasn't easy because my books are about the CS3 version and my version CS5.5 is already 6 years behind the current version!

I still need to work for a living, so time is still very tight.  So at first, I will be adding my lavender wands and ceramics.  As soon as new fuchsias and other plants are available, I will be adding them as well depending on the weather.  For most parts of the country, it is already going to be to hot to risk shipping small starts.  But if all goes well, I will be able to ship during that sweet spot in the fall when it is no longer too hot and not yet too cold.  This will give the starts more of chance to grow as well.

The seedlings of F. boliviana are doing very well and I will post photos of them again soon!
Here is a link to the website
What do you think of my new banner?
