Sprouts! Green sprouts! Sprouts in the garden, and grass in the lawn! (A sober summery green in my lawn, but in the low regions where the water must be pooling, a more sprightly shade.

The gibbous moon is almost full and hangs in the still day-blue sky, among small, compact clouds, only its rotundity betraying it.

marycatelli: (Architect's Dream)
On trains in India during the 19th century, first-class and second-class had things "reserved for ladies." Third-class, and later fourth, had "women only." One tea planter, arriving in India, had it impressed on him by the British whom he met, that only dire financial exigency would allow him, being British, to take a second-class ticket; if he could possibly afford a first-class, he had to take it, and of course, third was impossible.

So there's this bird that flies around the world. . . .

Well, the habitable regions of it.  Owing to the geographical set up, it is not a world in the sense of a planet, but the bird does not fly around the entire universe.  Only the parts in the middle are habitable, and where the bird flies marks the very end of where humans (or human-like beings) can survive without constant magical protection.
