Why is it that we look forward to summer all year, to the vacations we will take and the beautiful weather, but seldom take much time off save a week or two? Despite the call of summer frolicking there are still many places online that capture my attention.
Midatlantic Wildflower Field Guide – A photo set on Flickr of closely photographed wildflowers collected by Anita Gould, named and measured in some cases. She has also started a Midatlantic Trees, Shrubs, Vines, Gardens set that is equally as detailed.
Schmap – Schmaps are interactive maps and guide content that are dynamically integrated, allowing intuitive, real-time access to reviews and photo slide shows for places of interest. You can create your own or browse through schmaps that others have published.
Multi-column Liquid Layouts – 7 (free) CSS layouts by Matthew James Taylor that are iPhone compatible. Even though I’m not an iPhone owner I have to say that the device is certainly causing a lot more focus on mobile-friendly web sites. Yay, accessibility!
Transparent Gradients in Illustrator – How many times had I banged my head against this one before finally Googling a solution? I’ve lost count.
Made in England by Gentlemen – Cookie and Paul are hiking the Continental Divide as part of their summertime fun, and documenting their progress on a beautiful blog using a Nokia N82.
