July

  • July garden

(Revised 26 Jan 2015)
This is the time to wonder around in the garden enjoying the summer flowers, or simply hang around under a favourite tree with a glass of cool drink, or a cut of hot coffee.
Its also the time of the year that is often hot and humid; time to go fishing and relaxing at the cottage.
