Good news includes all the things which make us happy or otherwise feel good. It can be personal or public. We never know when something wonderful will happen, and when it does, most people want to share it with someone. It's disappointing when nobody is there to appreciate it. Happily, blogging allows us to share our joys and pat each other on the back.

What good news have you had recently? Are you anticipating any more? Have you found a cute picture or a video that makes you smile? Is there anything your online friends could do to make your life a little happier?

Today is sunny, breezy, and warm.  We got quite a bit of rain last night and more on the way.

Round One, I planted 6 red dianthus and 4 assorted zinnias in the prairie garden.  I also noticed a few flowers coming back from last year -- there are pink dianthus already blooming and I just spotted a baby marigold.  :D

I still need to get back out and feed birds, though. 

EDIT 5-22-19: Round Two, I fed the birds.  I have seen a goldfinch, a house finch, sparrows, and doves today.

I raked mulch toward the center of the forest garden and sowed grass seed around the east edge.  Then I planted columbines and forget-me-nots inside the forest garden.

EDIT 5-22-19: Round Three, I planted an oregano in the strip garden.  Then I planted 4 black hollyhock roots and multicolor hollyhock seeds around the telephone pole near the driveway.

Thanks to a donation from [personal profile] technoshaman, there are now 76 new verses in "A Cave Swarming with Strange Forms of Life."  Kenzie and Pretty Ears talk about hypervigilance and healing.

[personal profile] book_worm5 is calling for cosponsors in the half-price sale in Shiv.

Since Shiv poems are generally long, I don't have enough to sponsor one myself, but I'd be happy to pool with any of you who are also interested in reading more about him. The easiest to raise for would probably be "If You Don't Have Experience Sewing" at 69.50, or "Intelligence Having Fun" at $108, but if we do break $100 we can also get longer poems at quarter-price. I'm interested in most of them, so I'm willing to be swayed by what contributors most want to get.
