Monday Update 6-25-18

These are some posts from the later part of last week in case you missed them:

Hard Things

The half-price sale in Polychrome Heroics went stupendously well. \o/ Thank you all for your amazing generosity. If you look at the sale page, you'll see there are only 4 poems left. O.O One of my donors bought part of their batch early, and part will come later -- plus pending payments on held items -- so it's not quite all the way done yet. However, I have a huge backlog of sponsored poems to post. I haven't linked them individually here; just use the sale page and click on the underlined titles. Keep an eye on this blog as I'll probably be adding things all week.

Poetry in Microfunding:

"Energy, Made Visible" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Shiv and has 56 new verses. Dr. G and Shiv complete the round of therapy questions.

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

The weather has been warm and wet here. We got plenty of rain.  The yard is lush and green. Seen at the birdfeeders this week: sparrows, mourning doves, several cardinals, and plenty of of house finches. In bloom: marigolds, gazania, blue lobelia, white alyssum, zinnias, yarrow, torenia, salvia, cleome, petunia, million bells, snapdragons, lantana, coreopsis, dianthus, peppers, lamb's ear, basil, daylilies, begonia, golden raintree, and sundry others.  My Here Lies Butch daylilies are blooming.  They aren't the bold purple-and-green ruffles from the catalog, more like cream with a maroon throat, but very striking.  Crabapples, apples, and blackberries have green fruit. Mulberries and raspberries are ripe. Not many raspberries this year, as it was too dry when they were setting fruit.
