Thanks to a donation from [personal profile] dialecticdreamer, there are 15 new verses in "A Hope and a Promise."   Mrs. Ozenne and Aidan talk about school and play options.  Saraphina talks about her terrible past.  (Toddler phrasing, but graphic description of witnessed violence.)

Today is cloudy, cool, and breezy.  Earlier I took pictures.

I planted two lemon thyme plants in the Goddess Garden, and watered potted plants.

Yucca is almost done blooming.  I was out in the evening and surprised to discover that they are more fragrant at night.  Since they are pollinated by moths, this makes sense, but I had not noticed it before.
Yucca is winding down.

Some of its flowers are setting seed.  This also surprised me, because I didn't think yucca moths came this far north and also I've never seen their little holes (made by exiting caterpillars) on the pods.  But perhaps their range is expanding, or some other moths may have done the duty.

Most of the morning glories have been eaten.
