” Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass on a summer day listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is hardly a waste of time.”  —John Lubbock 

August is here and it’s time to watch the clouds float across the sky. We’ll be taking a break here on the blog for the next few weeks. Fun fact: I’ve never really taken off such a block of time since I started Poppytalk over 16 years ago, but this year I’m taking my cue from John Lubbock and will perhaps lie on the grass listening to the murmur of water. In the meantime a few links for you:
Have you listened to our summer playlist?
Stay hydrated with these beautiful coconut water popsicles.
Having trouble keeping up with the surplus of herbs in your garden?
This summer I’m all about salads and this one is getting made!

See you back here in September! Happy August!
