Trying out a new look

I'm trying to find a look that suits both me, and the content of this blog.

I've tried to choose a look that's clean and simple. A fussy frilly look is just not me. I don't dislike frilly looks, but they've never really worked for me. Those pink spots that I had until now didn't sit right with me, and I think they slowed up the page loading.

I think this look is more comfortable for me, at least for now.

If you want to overanalyse it, you might say that green and brown represent the muted colours of gumtrees, which in turn represent both (family) trees and Australia. The purple headings are just because I like purple.

I'd like some feedback, if you don't mind. Does the new look work for you? I'm not aiming to set anyone's world on fire, just to have something that's comfortable to read and doesn't jar given the content of the blog.

  2. I agree - great look - very clean and streamlined. And I love love love the white background and large black text - it is easy on old eyes like mine!

  5. I too love the white background, the eyes are not what they use to be. Loaded very quickly which is another plus
