A pick-up truck drives slowly along a country road early one hazy morning. Long, hot, sweltering days... these are the dog days of August here in the lowcountry.

  1. The haze gives a dreamy, softening effect to the photo. On the other hand, it reminds me of Bonny and Clyde.

  13. It's rather cloudy and mild here in London today.
    Last Saturday, I actually saw the first sign of autumn, eg, conkers!
    Guess the dog days are over. ;o)
    Hooray, time to get your spinning wheel out to make some yak's yarn?
