The most wonderful thing happened last night (as a result of something bad). We had a serious fly-hatching in the kitchen, and the only way I could see to get the flies out was to open the windows.Not so easy in an ancient house. The screens and storm windows are pretty much rusted to their frames, but John used a hammer to dislodge one screen from its frame and the result was like removing a bad filter from a camera. All the outdoor colors seemed enhanced (with no screen to mute them) and suddenly it was as if I was seeing lightning bugs and all my plants in 3-D--because I was!  I moved an arrangement that had been on the kitchen table (salsify blossom) over to the window to make this qualify as a windowsill arrangement, but, really, the view needed no embellishment.
