Begonias doing well, especially the pink-flowered one with bronzy leaves which is by the front door. Red geraniums blooming -- they're so cheerful-looking. TIger lilies in bud -- at least the few which haven't been beheaded by the deer. Pineapple sage looks good. Purple heliotrope blooming. Cardinal flower plant well leafed out. Will start blooming in a few weeks. Elecampane looks like it will start blooming soon, maybe when it gets a foot or two higher. Mint collection doing well. Emerald-and-gold mint has filled its pot, spearmint is in various places by the back door, applemint near the path to the front door. Some bee balm in the herb garden -- that usually blooms around the Fourth of July.
Started reading "Bad Fanfic! No Biscuit!" (http://www.englishchick.com/badfic/). The examples made me shudder -- the ones I could read. Some I read the warnings on and decided that I couldn't deal with right then -- or possibly ever. The ones I did read were horrific in their pure wrongness. The stories were deliberately done that way, to show what not to do. I don't know if the people who would benefit from these lessons would actually read through the website, but I would fervently hope that some do.
