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

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.

"When You Strike and Overcome Him" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Officer Pink and has five new verses.  Ansel's supervisor Bert shows up.

The weather has been variable here, sometimes mild and other times warmer or cooler. It rained and we saw a splendid double rainbow. Seen at the birdfeeders this week: sparrows, several cardinals, house finches, and a few doves. In bloom: marigolds, gazania, zinnias, torenia, salvia, cleome, petunia, million bells, snapdragons, lantana, dianthus, peppers, begonia, morning glory, cup plant, echinacea, gladioli, bellflowers, and sundry others. Crabapples, apples, and pears have green fruit.
