As the old expression really should have put it: cast ne'er a clout at least til août. It truly has been a cold and rainy old summer, so far, in England.
Anyway, that's août, up there, from (of course) Les Très Riches Heures du duc de Berry. And as lovely as any of them; although if you click on this enlargement, you might want to look at the swimmers in the river in the middle distance. The chap sitting on the bank seems to have no feet; and the two guys fully submerged seem to be, respectively, reasonably and prodigiously endowed in the trouser-eel department.
