so what does a beautiful blue spike of salvia have to do with an eames lounge chair? nothing at all except that we had the opportunity to see both of them this afternoon. in the midst of a re-envisioning of the interior of our house just now, we went to look at a used 1987 eames lounge chair at the home of a charming woman in west bloomington, mn, who also raises seven different kinds of native milkweed from seed each year, and who drew my attention to this gorgeous blue salvia in her front yard just as a bee landed on one of the petals. of course, we bought the chair.
