What, you may ask, was I doing wearing my favorite sweater while coloring Christmas lights? Well, I ask you, what would YOU do if you happened by a blue Sharpie at a vulnerable moment? Sheesh.
And of course I now realize that I need roughly three times as many lights as I've got.
On the plus side, I got all my potted geraniums wrapped in nice warm lights and insulated with decorative fir boughs which is moderately pretty. The Geraniums and big, fancy fuchsias are still blooming, and yesterday I saw a hummingbird out sipping at the flowers. She got away before I could take her picture.
Some of these would be better if I had taken them in the evening when the lights would show up.
