This is the bright now: Sargenti is a clean and sober mother of daughter McKenna, born in June, and a student in adult education classes.

Does the Adirondack chair look better on the porch or in the yard? Would gold trim on the flower box complement or overwhelm the green stripe already there? All this fussing for playhouses.
