You know who doesn't care about the rain? Lupine. Lupine is the big dumb hippie at the festival, high on mescaline, STOKED that it's raining again. We're having a party!
My penstemon is also doing well. I'd read that they don't usually bloom the first year after being transplanted but, lo and behold, the start I put in two months ago is blooming! I think it's because I bought this plant from the Master Gardener sale.
Heather, this has nothing to do with light fixtures, you're thinking. I know!
Rain was forecast so I had written off yard work for the weekend. I decided I should clean the house, which meant I ran around doing anything I could to avoid vacuuming. I recently ran across a fixture I bought at Ikea last summer in the basement. I have no idea where I was planning on putting it. Why not put it in the bedroom? Not that the existing fixture wasn't awesome:
The glass part that should hide the bulb was missing, so I had a bare bulb hanging from a very dirty ceiling fan that wasn't properly anchored so it heaved and chugged if you tried to use it.
That's just a little bit better, right? WHY DIDN'T I DO THIS A MILLION YEARS AGO?
