For the month of July there are cities in the Bargain Basement London, Paris, New York, Madrid and Moscow and in different styles.
Our title comes from the poem A Tree Song
by Rudyard Kipling
(in the book Puck of Pook's Hill
«Of all the trees that grow so fair,
Old England to adorn,
Greater are none beneath the Sun,
Than Oak and Ash and Thorn.
Sing Oak and Ash and Thorn, good Sirs
(All of a Midsummer morn)!
Surely we sing no little thing,
In Oak and Ash and Thorn!»
What a debt we owe our trees! They protect us from the worst of the sun and soak up some of our excess Carbon Dioxide. Let's plant more.
We hope you have been able to avoid the extreme midsummer (or midwinter) weather and we wish you well through the month of July.
