July

  • Hot July brings cooling showers, / Apricots and gilly flowers.

    • Sara Coleridge,
    • "The Months," Pretty Lessons in Verse for Good Children ()
  • July was the month when summer, like bread in the oven, might change color, but it would rise no higher. It was at its height.

  • July is hollyhocks and hammocks, fireworks and vacations, hot and steamy weather, cool and refreshing swims, beach picnics, and vegetables all out of the garden — first sweet corn on the cob dripping with butter, first tomatoes dead ripe and sunwarm, string beans, squash, crisp cucumbers. July can also be hard and shiny, brassy and sharp. Some days are like copper pennies in the sunlight.

  • In July everybody you telephone is somewhere else — either on the beach or on vacation, and half the time you're somewhere else too.

  • Lovely July ... with the evocative murmur of honey bees on the wing and the smell of sun tan cream.
