There will be a Poetry Fishbowl on Tuesday, August 1 with a theme of "Rites / Rights of Passage." I hope to see you then!

Poetry in Microfunding:
"A Hope and a Promise" is now complete.  Aidan and Saraphina explore the roof garden.  "The Inner Transition" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Berettaflies.  Valor's Widow finds out what Stylet has in his backpack.  "The Order of Their Stars" belongs to An Army of One.  Astin takes V shopping.

Weather has included some beautiful temperate days here.  Currently blooming: dandelions, marigolds, petunias, lantana, million bells, snapdragons, zinnias, firecracker plant, white and red clover, morning glories, spiderwort, echinacea, blackberry lilies, yellow coneflowers, Queen Anne's lace, frost asters, cup plant, black-eyed Susan, torenia, purple aster, naked ladies.  Corn ears are thickening and the corn seems to be done emitting pollen.  I have been weeding gardens, so they're more visible now.
