This is a hard time to be a true American. As I write this, a very large military appropriations bill was passed by Congress.

CLAY JENKINSON: The Jefferson Watch — On Jefferson And Leadership

Just a note about Jefferson and leadership. First, he was reluctant. Thanks to the influence of classical culture, all of the Founding Fathers had to pretend that they would rather be home tending their garden than hold political power, but Jefferson seems actually to have meant that.

I’ve done this … Continue reading PAULA MEHMEL: Shoot the Rapids —Finding A Balance

Peak daylily bloom here at Red Oak House has passed, and I can’t help but feel a bit wistful about this. The focus of this past July has been daylilies of all kinds, and not just in my garden.
