I took my venetian-style blind down and cleaned it in the bathtub this morning. I was surprised by the strength of the warm memories it stirred up...when I was in college and came home on break, on a couple of occasions I cleaned some of the blinds in my parents' house. Without letting anyone know. Then I waited days, weeks, even months once, until my mom spotted it. Ah, that was so fun! I'm grateful for those memories...but I'm also grateful I only have ONE of my own to clean!

 


     I'm also happy about how good my big pot is looking already:



Not bad for early June!


 


     Pleased that I got to do some catch-up with reading on FictionPress and LJ. Nice to have my list looking short again!

     And I came up with a name for my replacement betta. An odd one, yep. He shall be called 'Blacker.'

That does bring back memories of you cleaning our blinds and how slow we were on
spotting it. Thanks you again for doing it for us.

Your flowers are looking great. I will be seeing them soon.
I hope your betta likes his name. SD

You're welcome!

Hopefully I can get the rest planted today; it looks like a pretty rainy one. The morning glories are finally starting to vine, but they certainly won't be blooming by July 4.

Thanks! The blue flowers are lobelia, which I found easy to learn and remember thanks to Lobelia Sackville-Baggins in the Lord of the Rings. =)

Heh, maybe it suited her better when she was a cute 3-year-old hobbit-child. ;)

o_0 Wow, you're a lot more patient than I am! I would have been able to keep my mouth shut for all of five minutes before saying, "A-hem, notice anything different about the blinds?"

Good job on the flowers! They're beautiful :)

*grins* It helped that once I got back to college my mind was on classes and I didn't think about the blinds too often.

Thanks! The longer it stays coolish, the happier the lobelia will be.
