July is one of my favourite months of the year. I feel inspired by everything I see as I walk around town. Suddenly front gardens appear to be bursting into bloom, and even the neglected areas appear to be lush and thriving. The scent of Elderflower and roses fill the air, BBQ coals are burning, a radio is playing in the distance, children are happily playing in the neighbours gardens and in the evenings rain droplets fall heavy onto hot earth, leaving behind that unmistakable aroma of summer rain. The perfect time to hideaway and read some inspirational blog posts.
