Enter the Dog Days of Summer
The Dog Days of Summer refers to that brutal period between July 3 and August 11 when the Summer is the hottest and most sultry. This period was named for a strong showing of Orion’s dog Sirius in the evening and morning sky.
Sirius rises late in the dark, liquid sky
On summer nights, star of stars,
Orion’s Dog they call it, brightest
Of all, but an evil portent, bringing heat
And fevers to suffering humanity.

We talk a lot about color around here. We admire rich hues in our homes and clothing, derive energy daily from our ‘faucethead yellow‘ and know that the wrong color can make or break a project. More than anything, though, we know color tells a story. So, imagine our delight when we discovered that one of our favorite tumblrs has been telling color stories throughout its entire existence. Kudos, That Kind Of Woman. Those archives are impeccable. Very well done.
