Pelargonium update

Now 3 out of the 6 pages now validates. The Twitter widget was removed to improve speed. The embed image replaced with image and link.

Also corrected a few page links. Testing is important. Error pages turns away visitors. The increase in traffic is well worth the time.

4 new roses will be added this year and I'm still waiting for the new geraniums.

Updated pelargonums collection

The new Pelargoniums pages are the first to combine my existing site with Photoshelter I no longer need folders for thumbnails and full size images.

There is only 4 pelargonums for now. The complete collection will be transferred to this section with time and new ones will be added. The homepage will remain the same. Once the transfer is complete, the Geranium and Pelargonum menu link will be redirected to the new pages.

I will continue to offer prints with Imagekind and Zazzle. The new Gallery includes licensed downloads.

According to Google Analytics these new pages are more bot friendly.
