An English In Kentucky

     An obsession with the weather is nothing new here. I'll call this a drying spell. A chance for the poxes of damp to take a good hold, blossom and bloom and laugh at anything with a lung or a nose, cause Tomato to explode, wood to rot, compost to mushroom.

     White Man's Foot, or English Plantain, or Ribwort Plantain, sometimes called Buckhorn Plantain, and it's even been called a weed has that sootiness of August that blackens the toes. Not long until winter and if the Junipers, the Eastern Cedar, speak true from the quantity of their berries, it's going to be cold.
