sorry about this I had initially had quite a bit of time when this all started and have just had a very busy couple of weeks. but it seems as though you are moving along quite smoothly... the design is looking good.
i found this site that i thought really reflected a lot of things that we are incorporating in our design. Mainly just the gardening section, some of the other sections are good too but there isn't a lot of continuity between topics.
Things it does posess:
- several areas of navigation,
- photo on every page,
- good amount of content,
appearance for main page:
appearance for departmental pages:
let me know what you think...
