A look back at Banana Republic in L-America inspired a look over at it in T-America. *wist*

We had a detailed discussion about warnings in the headers above my writing, with many thoughtful comments.

The next Poetry Fishbowl will be on Tuesday, May 7 with a theme of "Officer Pink: Aftermath of the Raid."

Poetry in Microfunding:

There are two open epics.

"Learning the Vocation" belongs to Path of the Paladins. Shahana and company play games in the common room.

"A Cave Swarming with Strange Forms of Life" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Iron Horses. Kenzie tells Pretty Ears what is bothering him.

Weather here has been mild with occasional rain. Seen at the birdfeeders this week: a flock of mourning doves, a flock of grackles, a small flock of sparrows, two pairs of house finches, three bluejays, a pair of cardinals, a Bewick's wren, a brown-headed cowbird, a gray catbird, a brown thrasher, a robin, and a rabbit. Currently blooming: violas, purple grape hyacinths, violets, tulips, redbud tree, apple tree, crabapple trees, lilacs, large-flowered bellwort.


Monday Yardening

Today is warm, mostly sunny, and calm.  

We bought a pot and flowers for Mom for Mother's Day.  :D  I have assembled that pot.  

I still have leftover flowers (petunias and coleus) to pot up for myself, and fill dirt to put in a hollow of the yard.

EDIT 5/6/19: Round Two, I filled the dirt hollow and put grass seed over it.

There are lilies of the valley blooming along the north side of the house!  Where I had planted some long ago, but I don't remember doing it recently and they didn't last there.  Also some of these are several feet from the house, not all tucked closely against it -- farther away than I think I would have planted.  But hey: flowers!  :D  Clove currants are blooming in the streetside yard, too.
