August 1 marks the ancient Celtic festival of Lammas, a celebration of the beginning of the harvest. In many parts of the northern hemisphere, this is true for tree fruits as well as field crops: the peaches are at or slightly past their peak, and the early apples are ripening. Beau at Fox Haven Journal has gathered a bounteous harvest of treeish links for our own Festival of the Trees — the 26th edition. Go feast on an exceptionally well-organized and well-written procession of treats.

About Dave Bonta

I'm the author of several books of poetry, including Ice Mountain: An Elegy, Breakdown: Banjo Poems, and Odes to Tools, but my real work is at my long-running literary blog Via Negativa, where I'm currently creating erasure poems from every entry of the Diary of Samuel Pepys. I'm also the editor and publisher of Moving Poems, a blog showcasing the best poetry videos on the web.
