Sheesh! They're changing every day??!?!?!?!? How do we get to enjoy them?

Can we maybe take a vote (or did y'all do that already) on how often the banner should change? Or am I the only one it drives crazy?


I can understand if you don't want to keep them up for a solid week, but daily is just too much for my feeble brain to keep up with, especially on days when I'm not spending all day in front of the PC.

As ever, feel free to ignore my whine, but I'm tired/hot/sweaty/worn out, and the beautiful new banner was just one too many straws on this poor camel. Hilarious! (it's BEAUTIFUL - it really is. It's just not the one I was expecting to see)

So it *is* just me Hilarious! I dont' think it would bother me as much if it shifted in the middle of the night. But the banner I saw three hours ago is not the banner I'm seeing now, and it just threw me for a loop.

Okay, I'm really missing something here. How do we know who made the banner?

It's that heat and humidity that got you Mary. Group hug

Lynn, there is a post at the bottom of each page that says 'Today's site banner is by threegardeners and is called...'

There is a banner forum where you can see all previous banners, and you can tell the banner-makers if you liked the one they posted Whistling

I found the banner forum. I forgot it was there. Smiling

And never knew that link was at the bottom of the pages. *Blush*
I really need to make it a habit to check the bottom of the page. Big Grin

I don't think I would mind them as much if they were in the middle of the night, honestly. And Lynn's right - the heat/humidity has done a serious number on me. That's what I get for building two raised beds in one weekend (and mostly in one day). Hilarious!

And the banner forum is great, but becomes one more thing for me to keep track of in my already overloaded brain. Rolling on the floor laughing


I was just caught by surprise, and needed to whine a bit. Y'all can feel free to throw tomatoes at me (not that I'd notice, cause I'm heading to bed as soon as I click "Finished."

Sweet dreams, y'all!

I wouldn't dare waste my tomatoes, Mary.
I do sympathize but I'm one who spends most of my computer time (a lot) on ATP, so the banner changes are just another fun surprise when they happen.

I appreciate the understanding -- ATP is *always* open on my PC, but this was one of those rare days when I was away from it more than I was in front of it (did I mention that I built two raised beds today?). I had realized they were changing quickly, but didn't realize it was daily until I saw the new banner tonight.

And I think the middle of the night idea won't work becuase stuff happens here on GMT, and it's the middle of the night GMT. So I'll take my worn-out self to bed, and in the morning, I'll be blown away by the beauty of the purple and white blooms in the banner. Green Grin!
