Happy fourth of July to everyone! Even if you don't celebrate it as a holiday, I hope it was a very fine day of the month.

I joined a slew of Americans, Canadians, and Brits for a picnic in Hyde Park this evening in celebration, thanks to the organizationally-gifted easterbunny. It was a lovely evening, the worst of the day's heat ebbed by the bout of afternoon thunderstorms, a long lingering sunset overseeing our champagne, sparklers, and Sainsbury's quite respectable fried chicken. My contribution to the Americana was a wild rice salad. Clearly many of us were affected by the heat, as more people brought fresh fruit than anything else. Old friends, new ones, and picnic blankets on the long-grown grass above the Serpentine.
