As June was peculiarly the month of music and
flowers, July is the harvest month of the early fruits ;
and though the man of feeling would prefer the last
month, the present certainly offers the most attractions
to the epicure. Strawberries are in their ripest abun-
dance, and fill the air with fragrance even more delicious
than their fruit. While these are becoming scarce, the
raspberry bushes that embroider the walls and fences,
hang out their ripe red clusters of berries, where the
wild rose and the elder flower scent the air with their
healthful fragrance.

Another sweet perfume, but that I know well,
'Tis the Elder-Flower's lucious and honey-rich smell.

A much more agreeable, yet rather heavy and in-
toxicating fragrance, is that of the elder-flower, which
is abundant towards the middle of June.

The hedges about the villages of Picardy were white with
elderflower and drenched with scent. It was haymaking
time and French women and children were tossing the
hay on wooden pitchforks during hot days which came
between heavy rains. Our men were marching through
that beauty> and were conscious of it, I think» and glad
of life.
