Life is full of things which are hard or tedious or otherwise unpleasant that need doing anyhow. They help make the world go 'round, they improve skills, and they boost your sense of self-respect. But doing them still kinda sucks. It's all the more difficult to do those things when nobody appreciates it. Happily, blogging allows us to share our accomplishments and pat each other on the back.

What are some of the hard things you've done recently? What are some hard things you haven't gotten to yet, but need to do?

This is a favorite type of prairie grass.  I have little bluestem and big bluestem, a few bunches, in my prairie garden.  What I did not know it that this is a larval host plant for skipper butterflies.  We have lots of skippers, especially in the prairie garden. If their caterpillars are grass eaters, I guess now I know why.  :D

Today I fed the birds.  There are now two little white eggs in the mourning dove nest by the kitchen window.  :D

The weather is chilly and clear.  It looks like the spring bulbs have survived the snow; daffodils, crocus, Dutch iris, snowdrops, and forsythia are still blooming.

Also my father ordered a TON more plants for me.  \o/

This poem came out of the February 2016 [community profile] crowdfunding Creative Jam. It was inspired by prompts from [personal profile] curiosity and [personal profile] shiori_makiba. It also fills the "get enough sleep" square in my 5-20-15 card for the Wellness Toolbox Bingo fest. This poem has been sponsored by Anthony & Shirley Barrette. It belongs to the Polychrome Heroics series.
