The background, hopefully matches the original colour.
Surprisingly, it was difficult to upload the image into Blogger as it only allows for two sizes - large and small. The large version took up most of the monitor screen whereas the small version squashed itself shyly into the left-hand corner. It took crop after crop and stretch after stretch - not to mention a few shrinking sizes into 'Photoshop' before I could finally upload the size that is at the top of my blog. I looked into the back 'edit Html' code hoping to see if I could tweak the size but this appears to be hidden - so I had to proceed with a front picture view only.
