inspriation avenue - favorite month





Dearest Minions,

Inspiration Avenue have asked what is your favorite month. Mine is July, it has a lot of birthday's in it so I get to spoil a lot of good people, we get some sunny weather and everything is growing. July is a month that I look forward to, especially on damp miserable days like today.

This picture was taken a couple of years ago in the Great Churchyard in Bury St Edmunds, I often walk through the Churchyard, which is wonderful peaceful area in the centre of Town. One part of it is allowed to go wild while other areas are careful groomed (we have people in Bury who write into the local paper to say that grass should be 3 inches long....if only they would join amnesty international and do some real good. Although providing exasperated amusement is good for me.) I love the swaying cow parsley in the wild area, which becomes a white shadow in the dusk. I once saw a Kestrel  bring down a fat pigeon through these trees.

This is a great photo. Love the various levels of light and the greens. What a great place to get inspiration. July here were I am is hot and but I love the long days. So it is a month to do lots of things. Lots of birthdays too. It is hard to choose just one month, there are good things abotu each!

What a gorgeous canopy of green- uplifting and full of life (as is July)!

I love sunlight playing through the trees. This is a beautiful photo, and almost makes me want to switch my favorite month from June to July heehee! However, we get a tad less humidity in June, so I'll stick with that as my favorite!

I laughed about the people writing in about the length of the grass!

I love your photo and the story that goes with it.
It is so hot and humid in Arkansas in July, but I will think of your lovely tree and smile....

I have a tender spot for grave yards. And I wish I had one like yours in my neighborhood! It sounds lovely.

Just what I needed on a cold, miserable day. Lots of sunny sky and GREEN. And the thought of warmer days ahead. What a great IA challenge post.
