sea-side garden

After all the poking around about coastal flowers -- the characters have arrived at the lighthouse.

And within minutes, I hear one of the sailor-wizards explaining their garden to the youngsters.  Not the hardy, saline tolerant ones about the base, but the ones in the low walled garden.  Some are hardier than others, so they can gauge what's happening to protections.  When the most tender ones start to fail, they start to work.    With any luck, they keep things safe and the other flowers alive; often enough, nowadays, they can even save the tender flowers.

Still going to have to do more research on coastal habitats and flowers.  (Also, this is the point at which it becomes clear that a character is unreasonably sulking.)

  • not quite normal NaNoWriMo

    So I have concluded my NaNoWri adventure. Both stories are complete for a total of 35,154 words. One small whoot.

  • NaNoWriMo news

    The first novella's first draft is done. At 21,400 words. Hmm. I see a small problem if the second one turns out the same, even not taking the time…

  • NaNoWriMo

    Going sluggishly. Did write something every day, so there is hope in sight.
