I have made bingo down the B and G columns of my 7-1-19 card for the Winterfest in July Bingo. This is a rare case where all my fills made lines!

B3 (silver and gold) -- "A Needful Thing" (standalone)
B4 (baking/cooking) -- "Where the Fruit Is" (Polychrome Heroics: Shiv)
B5 (blankets) -- "Dignity, Respect, and Absolute Care" (standalone)

G1 (The Winter Soldier) -- "What It Means to Me" (LIFC)
G2 (International Day of Persons with Disabilities - December 3) -- "Pride Against Prejudice" (Polychrome Heroics)
G3 (acts of kindness) -- "Honor the Complications" (Polychrome Heroics: Riposte)
G4 (family portraits) -- "Suitable Accommodations" (Monster House)
G5 (iceman) -- "The Ever-Changing Anthem" (Polychrome Heroics)

Thursday Yardening

Today is mild and sunny.

I refilled the thistle sock.

I am amused to see that a purple-and-white viola has seeded itself onto the patio.  :D

EDIT 8/1/19 -- Round 2, I watered plants.  I sprayed weed killer on poison ivy.  I sprayed bug killer on tent caterpillars.

The wildflower garden is doing nicely.  It has partridge pea, blackberry lily, red yarrow, black-eyed susan, and coreopsis all in bloom.  I think there are asters surviving that should bloom in late summer or early fall.  :D
