Have finished Tiassa. This is not, repeat not, the signal to read The Phoenix Guards, Five Hundred Years After, or The Viscount of Adrilankha. Well, maybe The Viscounta because I was punchdrunk when I read it last and remember nothing of what happened.

The neighbour two doors north of me called me over this morning as I was looking at the straggly newly-planted lavender on my front uhh what would be lawn if it had grass. Seems the neighbour two doors south of me had come by that morning, looked at the lavender, looked up the street to see if anyone was watching, looked down the street ditto, leaned over, reached out her hand, hesitated, flipped hand in 'not worth it' gesture, and walked away. North neighbour was in her front garden but is short, slender, dark-haired, and dark-skinned, and does indeed blend with the scenery, as I can attest from experience. North neighbour also has flourishing lavender plants that she's happy to give cuttings from to those that ask. Looks like I may be asking sooner than I thought.
