My husband Curt and I have been known to let one thing lead to another.
One such episode started with the delivery of a Breck’s spring bulb catalog. I wanted daffodils so badly; then I would really feel like a homeowner, a grown-up. However, we didn’t have any space in our landscaping beds to plant bulbs, so I set the catalog aside. It kept calling me, though, and finally I spoke with Curt about taking out some grass and making a new landscaping bed.
He was agreeable and I happily ordered nearly two hundred bulbs.
But Curt and I started thinking, “Hmm, if we’re going to make things pretty, shouldn’t we go ahead and put in a lamp post, like we’ve talked about?” Indeed.
So we ordered a gorgeous lamp post and started looking for an electrician.
