Clover

We're enjoying lovely weather right now. It's good for working in the yard in the morning, then good again for hanging out on the deck in the afternoon. Not that we work all that hard. I did get the mulcher out and ground up some of the hazelnut trimmings. There's a lot more to do, but I think it's worth it for the compost.

One of hundreds of clover flowers I pass on my walk with Callie every day.

The Wimbledon tennis tournament starts on Monday. I will be watching. And the Tour de France bicycle race starts in two weeks on the fifth of July. They're starting in England this year. Go figure. And then there's that World Cup thing going on. Although I'm not paying all that much attention to that. Still, France hasn't been eliminated. Yet.

  4. A French friend of mine asked if it's true that the World Cup is not being followed too much in the U.S. :) True, but I think it's a bit bigger now that (thanks to cable TV) there are so many sports channels, so room has been made for it. Also, with the U.S. team doing well, the whole thing is getting much more coverage.

  6. The Tour de France, like the World Cup (of which we shall not speak) and loads of other competitions, is a commercial operation. They've been inviting bids for foreign starting stages for years - it was in London in 2007 or thereabouts - and Yorkshire must have put in a better bid than the competitors (Italy, I think..?) There was a piece on BBC TV last night about the preparations and the impact on rural life in the Dales - and the massive landscape artworks farmers are getting involved with to catch the TV viewers' eye.
