We are having tremendous thunderstorms, this morning. I am sipping my coffee–not at all looking forward to going in to work in this mess–and wondering what schools do about mornings like this. Are kids allowed to stand outside in electrical storms, waiting for the bus? I have searched my own memory, and honestly can’t remember.
Thanks for the input on the room colors. I have settled on painting the bedroom *some* shade of green. Apple 3 acquires an unpleasant dingy tobacco-stained air at night, I decided, so I may go with Pale Apple 2 or I may have a look at Pale Apple 3, should such a color exist. The master bathroom is weeks or months away from being painted, so I have some time to chew on what to do there.
Let’s look at some garden pictures I took yesterday, when it was sunny.
The thai basil is doing very well–Sparks is all charged up to make pho this summer–and the snapdragons I planted around it are doing better than snapdragons planted anywhere else in my garden. Must be a nice, sunny spot.
Volunteer dianthus has come up in my flower bed. It must have grown from last year’s seed, I guess, which is surprising because the dianthus that was in that spot last year was so heavily nibbled by the rabbits, I wouldn’t have thought it had a chance to go to seed.
And I am very, very excited to see how well the hollyhocks are growing, this year. I am crossing my fingers that they might bloom, which would be superfantastic. Nothing is prettier, or more surreal, than blooming hollyhocks.
