[personal profile] heartsinger has been hard at work updating the poetry pages. So far An Army of One, Clay of Life, A Conflagration of Dragons, Feathered Nests, Glimpses of Minoa (on the Serial Poetry page), and Monster House are current.  Fiorenza the Wisewoman is updated, now with corrected sizing and added information about seasons.  More are waiting in the queue for me to go over. \o/ Yay, progress!

Poetry in Microfunding:

"Marks of Devotion" belongs to Kande's Quest. Kande ventures into the underworld in search of her brother.

"Energy, Made Visible" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Shiv. Dr. G and Shiv discuss what could be done with different sets of creme pastels.

"Only If It Is Embraced" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Damask.  Ham grumbles over the arrangements.

The weather has been hot and mostly dry. Seen at the birdfeeders this week: sparrows, mourning doves, several cardinals, some brown-headed cowbirds, some robins, a pair of goldfinches, a pair of house finches, a brown thrasher, and an indigo bunting.  They are really enjoying the thistle seed.  In bloom: pink chives, columbine, marigolds, gazania, blue lobelia, white alyssum, zinnias, sage, beebalm, yarrow, torenia, salvia, cleome, petunia, million bells, snapdragons, lantana, tickseed coreopsis, dianthus, peppers, blackberries, Washington hawthorn, red twig dogwood, and sundry others.  Peonies and iris are almost done blooming.  Raspberries, crabapples, and cherries have green fruit.  Mulberries have green or slightly pink fruit.  I have some of the saplings left to plant, and about two and a half flats of potted plants.  And it's over 90F outside, which means I shouldn't really be out doing yardwork, so I have to do it in short sessions, making it take longer.
