July she will fly

Sometimes you learn things that really surprise you, things you read about and a little sparkle of excitement jumps inside you.
Today I learned that in Paris back in the 1850s there was such a thing as treetop restaurants and bars. The original 'grand Robinson' was a restaurant built in an old chestnut tree. People who could not get to the seaside would come for a getaway. It was all the rage! The pictures are just amazing.

There are far more amazing details on the website - messynessychic

There is also some really interesting information about the moulin rouge and it's famous (or infamous) elephant.

And now for a song, one I keep coming back to. It sounds like summer rain, you know the kind that is warm and heavy and all at once.
