A month of green ~

~~ "Hot July brings cooling showers,Apricots and gillyflowers."-
Sara Coleridge, Pretty Lessons in Verse ~~

The ground was dry and parched, cracks appeared in the potager, the rhubarb wilted, the water butt was empty, but that was in April. This month July we have seen a lot of rain in Bretagne!

I walked through the Jardin Public this week in Fougeres and it was very green indeed.

The colour Green

And in fact it was still raining when I took the photo but only light mizzle, what has your July/Juillet been like?

French words

Mist is brume

Heat haze is brume de chaleur

Chaleur (heat) comes from the Latin Calor,

Storms and heavy rain here - incroyable!

(In answer to your question on my blog - Yes, I did set up a Twitter account, just the one as LanternAuthor, because I saw there were others already with my name, and I thought I'd better have something in hand if necessary. But I've had so much else going on, as well as trying to settle to write a new book, that I never got started. I have a feeling it would provide yet more online distraction...!)
