Ume Blossoms - free blogger XML template

There are loads of Ume Blossoms out in Japan right now and they are soooo cute. I, personally think that Ume (plum) blossoms are more aesthetic than cherry blossoms - their colour is more vibrant and they seem heavier. Of course I do love them both. Anyhow, here's a blog design with some ume blossoms (image from a public domain collection).

  5. hey i have a question about the layout
    after uploading it as my template, everything seemed fine.
    but i noticed that people cannot comment on my blog posts.
    no box would appear if they click the 'post a comment' button or the 'x comment' button
    is this template missing some codes?
    please help!

  6. Unicorns: yeah, sometimes this happens due to changing the template or the kind of comments selected. Read this page here for info on how to fix it. It's easy.
