You can forget that even in low light, rainy conditions, daffodil yellow is blinding to the camera. Just maybe if the sun comes out tomorrow, the first daffodil of 2010 will officially be open, nearly three weeks later than the spring of 2009. I blame it on the snow pack.
The wood features of the cozy cabin are near ready for staining. The question will be light or darker. I need to chose the tile for the floor and should probably pull out one of the kitchen cabinet doors to help decide. Should the ceilings be lighter than the large rafters or all the wood stained the same?
I have vacuumed twice and wet mopped by hand twice and the loft floor still has a white film left from the drywall texture residue. It may need to be scrub mopped again before I bleach it to remove some mildew stains and scuff marks. Where is a fairy godmother when you need one?
It is all light and white inside right now. That will change dramatically with a golden clay colored tile floor (to match my dirt) and walls painted in some yellow/orange/red unknown blend color that will of course, flow. Flow is important.
The meadow style garden will one day flow through the sunny utility valley. This space even makes sense for one of those designs that mimics a river with mass plantings. The hardest part would be the slow process of acquiring the needed mass and my genetic predisposition to "Oh that's pretty. I want one of those."
See. The Chionodoxa are coming up. Another patch of them was in the area rototilled by the skunk in the dead of winter. I should rake that out soon.
Tomorrow I will go look for tile after submitting my application for a passport card. There is a short cut between Flint, Michigan and Buffalo, New York through Canada. I hear it is a nice drive. It should be spring there by July.
