Firelight will not let you read fine stories but it’s warm and you won’t see the dust on the floor

I am obsessed with lights I tell ya! Mr. Vixen constantly runs around the house turning them off behind me, while I circle around in front of him turning them back on. Now that it is summer time, we spend more and more time outside. We have a set of hanging lights within the screen porch, but I like the breeze I feel when I sit out at the patio table by the pond in Collin’s Memorial Garden. (Which is looking quite lovely now that things are growing in, so I think I shall share a picture with you of it in a moment). Back to lights.  All long time ago I found (and I cannot remember where, when or how) a set of lights that you could put on your umbrella. Ours died a long, long time ago and I have been missing them terribly. So you can imagine my joy when I found these over at Sadly for me, my yard looks nothing as nice as this picture. Happily for me, the people over at CSN are going to send me a set of umbrella to try out on my umbrella. I doubt they will make my yard look this nice, but I am sure it will be a great improvement when I am out communing at the fountain. After I receive them, I will tell you all about them!

Oh yea, and here is a pic of Collin’s (aka Watermelon) Memorial Garden with all the plants growing so well (I can’t find the original from when we first built/planted it because I am brain dead):


Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending


I saw a subliminal advertising executive, but only for a second.


  1. I really love outdoor lights but the sad thing is that here in the Northwest when the weather is warm enough to be outside it stays light till almost 10:00 and you really don’t get the full effect of the lovely lights!!

  2. We love out outdoor lights, but the mosquitoes are what drive us indoors when the sun sets!

  3. when i am home, i seldom spend my time outside 🙂 except when the birds call me and I will look for them. i do love opening the windows though to welcome the cool breeze. hope you have a wonderful weekend, Vixen.

    First of all the CSN people are pretty cool. I want to see your umbrella!
    Secondly, I love the memorial garden.

  5. We are into lights also. The umbrella lights look really good.And of course I love Collin’s Garden. I will have to do a garden post.

  6. We use gas powered heaters when we are sitting outside on the patio at night, the hanging lights make you feel so cozy. Ahh relaxing, I’ve just found your Blog, glad I did.
