Poetry in Microfunding:

There are three open epics.   We're full until at least one of these concludes.

"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. In which a supervillain and a cop argue over donuts.

"Mask of the White Demon" is now complete.  Find out about the mask.

"When You Strike and Overcome Him" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Officer Pink and has four new verses.  Ansel talks with some of the other superheroes on the raid.

The weather has been variable here, sometimes mild and other times sweltering.  We got soaked once when we went out and it was raining.  Seen at the birdfeeders this week: sparrows, several cardinals, big flocks of of house finches, and a few doves.  In bloom: marigolds, gazania, blue lobelia, white alyssum, zinnias, torenia, salvia, cleome, petunia, million bells, snapdragons, lantana, coreopsis, dianthus, peppers, basil, begonia, morning glory, yellow wildflowers, blackberry lilies, cup plant, spiderwort, echinacea, naked lady lilies, and sundry others. Crabapples, apples, and pears have green fruit.
