And from the fig tree learn a parable: When the branch thereof is now tender, and the leaves come forth, you know that summer is nigh. (Matt 24:32, Douay-Rheims Bible)
This image dates from mid-September – the first month of spring in the southern hemisphere. And now, as the old song says, Sumer is icumen in.
There are a number of versions of the song on YouTube – including one said to be by the Hilliard Consort, which one user says is “the best version I’ve heard on YouTube so far and doubt it will be surpassed.”
