Site Updates

Trouble with RSS feed fixed?

April 4, 2006
A couple of people have reported problems accessing my RSS feed. I tried subscribing to this site via Bloglines and it seems to be working now. (Although I might have broken the subscriptions you’ve already set up.)

If you have tried to subscribe to Zanthan Gardens, can you let me know whether or not it worked for you?

  1. From Margaret Moffat:

    Here in the wet north-west of England bearded irises struggle. They often rot away. The beautiful photos of ‘Strictly Ballroom’ and my favourite, ‘Champagne Elegance’ encourage me to try again with them. I greatly enjoy reading about your garden.

    Margaret. As my garden begins to wither under the Texas sun, I dream of your beautiful English garden with its high hedges, huge beds of flowers (I’m especially fond of the foxgloves) and the raspberries. If you do plant irises, you should put them in a raised bed and try to keep the top of the rhizome above the dirt so they won’t rot. We saw so many irises at Arley Hall last year that I’m sure you’ll be able to grow them too. — mss

  2. From Kathy (New York):

    I have been a longtime subscriber to your blog via Bloglines and haven’t had any trouble. There was a period of a couple of weeks where my own feed wasn’t being picked up and the little red exclamation point was really beginning to bother me. After successfully subscribing to my feed with other feed readers, I finally emailed them and asked them to take a look. They reset it–whatever that means–and the bonus is that my favicon now displays, when it never used to.

    I have subscribed through bloglines, too, for a long time and never have had a problem.
