I was kind of worn out from cooking all day yesterday, so didn't do too much today. I sat out on the patio and had a cup of coffee. A bird flew up to the hummingbird feeder and tried to stick his big beak in it, without luck. It was a bird I had never seen before--had some yellow in his wings. Maybe he will come back and try again.

I had an electrician come and put in an outdoor outlet in the patio so we can plug in our garden fountain when it gets here. I watched a youtube video that made it look like I could do it myself, but I don't like to mess with electricity. Anyway this guy came and got it in and didn't charge me much. And it works. And I'm not electrocuted. Win-win.

Mr Lincoln

Yea I will not mess with electric or gas. I made PSE&G come cap the gas line for the stove when we took it out, even though it was basically twisting in a plug into the threaded pipe end.

We have a big electrical project coming up, which I may do prior to the deck, or at least have them lay the ground work for the outdoor plugs.

BTW not sure if it interests you but at Costco today I found strings of the bigger bulbs I associate with carnivals, but these are LED's with a remote. I thought I'd mention it since you are doing this project. They previously only had incandescent ones, which probably look nicer but use a lot more power. I am hoping I like the quality of the light.

Definitely a smart move not to Youtube it.

I love Mr. Lincoln. Though I'm not usually berserk about hybrid teas. How's the health of the shrub? What I see looks fine. Probably twenty years ago I was reading about Mr. Lincoln as one of the hybrids that was "running out," and my experience sadly chimed with that....
