I took some pictures in the yard.

Poetry in Microfunding:
There are two open epics at present.
"Rainshadow Road" belongs the Daughters of the Apocalypse series. It introduces Maggot to the Clearwater Caravan.
"A Celebration and a Consolation" belongs to Polychrome Heroics. Keira comforts her mother after the breakup.
The weather has remained intermittently wet here. Seen at the birdfeeders this week: a small flock of house finches, a few mourning doves, and a squirrel. Currently blooming: violas, spiderwort, purple coneflower, yellow coneflower, morning glories, nasturtium, cup plant, black-eyed Susan, Queen Anne's lace, petunia, zinnias, marigolds, naked ladies, purple penstemon. Blackberries are ripe.
If you'd like to sponsor a particular square, especially if you have an idea for what character, series, or situation it would fit -- talk to me and we'll work something out. I've had a few requests for this and the results have been awesome so far. This is a good opportunity for those of you with favorites that don't always mesh well with the themes of my monthly projects. I may still post some of the fills for free, because I'm using this to attract new readers; but if it brings in money, that means I can do more of it. That's part of why I'm crossing some of the bingo prompts with other projects, such as the Poetry Fishbowl.
Underlined prompts have been filled.
