Poetry in Microfunding:

There are now four open epics.   We're full until at least a couple of these conclude.

"Energy, Made Visible" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Shiv. Now Shiv flibbers over being unable to earn ALL the pretty colors at once.

"Only If It Is Embraced" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Damask. In which a supervillain and a cop argue over donuts.

"Mask of the White Demon" belongs to Kande's Quest. Kande finds a shaman to help her pursue the demons who kidnapped her brother.

"When You Strike and Overcome Him" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Officer Pink.  Here begins the raid on the Umsetzung Complex and the downfall of Carl Bernhardt.

The weather has been variable here, mostly mild, and we got quite a bit of rain yesterday. Seen at the birdfeeders this week: sparrows, several cardinals, flocks of of house finches, a few doves, and a squirrel. I also saw a hawk actually in the yard, roosting in the mulberry tree beside the garage!  :D In bloom: marigolds, gazania, blue lobelia, white alyssum, zinnias, torenia, salvia, cleome, petunia, million bells, snapdragons, lantana, coreopsis, dianthus, peppers, basil, daylilies, begonia, morning glory, yellow wildflowers, blackberry lilies, cup plant, spiderwort, echinacea, and sundry others. Crabapples, apples, and pears have green fruit. Blackberries are ripe, but there aren't many this year.
