I have already turned the calendar page to August. We had few really summer days in July although weather was quite changeable. Many bloggers are already talking about coming up change of season and I am still waiting for my summer holidays break… But definitely you can sense the change in the air and days are getting shorter. The wildflowers are still in great abundance and some will flower well into autumn. Was not going to say this word yet, but there you go!
When visiting Brighton on the hottest day of the year I also went for a wander in the grounds of the Royal Pavilion. It used to be a royal residence and a seaside retreat for George, Prince of Wales who later became King George IV. Apparently, he was known for his extravagant lifestyle. The exotic architecture in style of the Indo-Gothic and beautiful gardens provided a shelter and retreat from a busy summer beach.
Today was a perfect day for not only stopping and smelling the roses but also for lying down and watching the sky.
