In case the rains are coming, I decided to start painting the wall on the roof terrace yesterday. It's a bright pink, designed to look nice and cheerful all year (it should go nicely with the white chairs, blue parasol, blue watering can and hanging pot as well as the white faux limestone and green mosaic tiles we plan for the floor) and it looked very cheerful on the yellow-handled brush I used. sbisson got home from his meeting and joined in to do the cuttining around the edges neatly. A second coat today and we're all bright and florid. This is a pink that changes with the light from a hot red pink to a blue pink to a gosh, that's bright pink. And the paint looked so nice on the brush, I thought 'I'll have that as a userpic!'.
