New verses in "Marks of Devotion"

Thanks to a donation from [personal profile] kengr, there are 7 new verses in "Marks of Devotion."  Kande discovers that the underworld is even weirder than she thought.

This means there will be more money left over from the poll, which is heavily favoring the finish of "Marks of Devotion."  I'll post another poll to distribute the overflow.

Followup Poll

"Marks of Devotion" is the runaway favorite in the general fund poll, and it just got another $20 donation. So there will be $36 left over. I'm running a quick poll to distribute the leftover funds, open until tonight. Everyone is eligible to vote in this poll.

These are the remaining epics:

"Energy, Made Visible" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Shiv and needs $373 to be complete. Dr. G and Shiv discuss what could be done with different sets of creme pastels.

"Only If It Is Embraced" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Damask and needs $474 to be complete. Ham grumbles over the arrangements.


Friday Yardening

The air is hot and wet after the rain.  Sun is out now.

Round One, I refilled the birdfeeders.  Then I cleared a space in the purple-and-white garden and planted a purple sedum there.

EDIT 6-1-18: Round Two, I planted three different types of coreopsis around the barrel garden.  Thanks to the rain last night and this morning, the ground is now wet to the depth of my trowel, instead of just the first inch or two. \o/ 

EDIT 6-1-18: Round Three, I cleared a space and planted the white bleeding heart in the forest garden near the kitchen window.

EDIT 6-1-18: Round Four: I cleared space to plant a yellow yarrow and a pink yarrow in the septic garden.
