Perseids tonight! lefty day, fall gardens

Daily Newsletter for Friday, August 11, 2017

Sing a song of Summer,
The world is nearly still,
The mill-pond has gone to sleep,
And so has the mill
.
Shall we go a-sailing?
Or shall we take a ride,
Or dream the afternoon away
Here, side by side?

–Cosmo Monkhouse (1840–1901)
