Poem: "Transcend Apparent Limits"

This poem came out of the August 15, 2017 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired by a prompt from [personal profile] curiosity. It also fills the "trust" square in my 7-31-17 card for the Cottoncandy Bingo fest. This is the free epic for the October 3, 2017 Poetry Fishbowl meeting its $200 goal, selected in an audience poll. It belongs to the Cuoio & Chiara thread of the Polychrome Heroics series.

Thursday Yardening

Today is cooler, cloudy, and damp.  We got some rain last night; there are puddles in the road.

I started work on the wildflower garden.  Today I planted 10 Muscari 'Ocean Magic' bulbs.  These are like the classic blue grape hycacinths except the flowers are an exquisite pale blue. I also put out 10 Hyacinthoides hispanica in mixed colors, aka wood hyacinths or Spanish bluebells.  I still have plenty more left to plant.
