We have tipped into the second half of summer and are moving deeper into August. There is a happy tiredness to the plants, as though they too are worn out by their own exuberance and taking some necessary rest, a little softer and more frayed at their own edges. Everything is crisp; with lawns turned to savannahs, telling the story of a summer that is bound to take its place in the record books, filed away next to 1976 and all its folklore. The evenings, like the flowers have - dare I whisper it- begun to draw in, just a little. And so too the mornings, which are now more forgiving of rest. The changes are minimal but we know which way it is going. It would be easy - but premature- to lament. We are still on the very gentle slope of the light curve, with everything that came before still to come and much of summers finery to enjoy- perhaps at just a gentler pace. For August is just that. A gentler version of July, the calendar version of the mid afternoon, where a quieter existence is mandatory, and a pulling back still very much advised; the arrow in the bow of September.
I am hoping to spending the next two weeks with everything switched off - myself included- but there is lots of yoga available below to keep you going. I hope you can enjoy them, wherever you find yourself.
