Due to the failure of my Ott light bulb this evening (the flickering of which would have brought on a seizure if I had seizures), the photo of today's card has been replaced with this photo of my favorite new lamp, which quite frankly was useless in helping with the Ott light issue but makes my library look quite festive in an Arts and Craftsy way.
Do you know the dragonflies at Yellowstone National Park are red? Iridescent dark red, including the wings. I'd never seen such coloring before but there they were in August of 2003 near Old Faithful. The dragonflies on this lamp are a hybrid of the Yellowstone variety and every other variety I've seen in my life. And that red will carry nicely into the dining room beside the library.
Anyway, I'm going to find a new 13-watt Ott bulb tomorrow and hopefully my card using self-adhesive canvas (a gift from reader kegbo!) will look better with the full-spectrum light 'cause it looked like hee-haw with an incandescent bulb and with a flash.
