Poetry in Microfunding:
"A Hope and a Promise" belongs to Polychrome Heroics.  Aidan and Mrs. Ozenne talk more about Saraphina as she interacts with another toddler.  "Essential for Human Survival" is now complete.  Cassandra and Groundhog enjoy crafts and cuddles.  "The Inner Transition" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Berettaflies.  Valor's Widow finds out what Stylet has in his backpack.  

Weather has been warm and we got a little rain.  Currently blooming: dandelions, carnations, marigolds, petunias, lantana, million bells, snapdragons, zinnias, firecracker plant, white and red clover, rose campion, morning glories, spiderwort, echinacea, blackberry lilies, yellow coneflowers, Queen Anne's lace, frost asters, and some yellow thing in the wildflower garden.  Corn is tasseling.  I picked the first cayenne peppers and the first blackberries.  One jalapeno plant has survived and is now putting out tiny peppers.

Do you remember mentioning "Read about the sworn virgins of Albania" to us?
Well, it turns out that there seems to be a similar custom in Afghanistan. Take a look at this:

I came across it by accident last night, watched it, and then thought you might like to see it too.
