The [community profile] crowdfunding Creative Jam was this weekend with a theme of "Chaos and Order."

There is a half-price sale in Polychrome Heroics this week.

Poetry in Microfunding:

There are now three open epics. I expect to have more as I finish writing some of the bingo fills, so other than those, we're full for now.

"Energy, Made Visible" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Shiv. Now Shiv flibbers over being unable to earn ALL the pretty colors at once.

"Only If It Is Embraced" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Damask and has 44 new verses. In which a supervillain and a cop argue over donuts.

"Mask of the White Demon" belongs to Kande's Quest. Kande finds a shaman to help her pursue the demons who kidnapped her brother.

"A Certain Form of Humility" is now complete. Find out what happens to Johan and Althey after the odd energy surge.

The weather has been variable here, warm to hot, and we got a little rain.  Seen at the birdfeeders this week: sparrows, several cardinals, flocks of of house finches, and a squirrel. In bloom: marigolds, gazania, blue lobelia, white alyssum, zinnias, torenia, salvia, cleome, petunia, million bells, snapdragons, lantana, coreopsis, dianthus, peppers, basil, daylilies, begonia, morning glory, butterfly weed, yellow wildflowers, blackberry lilies, and sundry others. Crabapples, apples, and pears have green fruit. Mulberries are effectively done.  Blackberries are starting to ripen, but there aren't many this year.
