JULY/AUGUST 2018
"In July such a rickyard is very hot; heat radiates from every straw. The
ground itself is dry and hard, each crevice choked with particles of
white chaff; so that even the couch can hardly grow except close under
the low hedge where the pink flower of the pimpernel opens to the sky.."
