The Changing Seasons – July 2019

The Changing Seasons – July 2019

The Changing Seasons post, inspired by the lovely Sarah at Secret Art Expedition and hosted by Su at Zimmerbitch.

For some of July, it was all about the memories of living in Bangkok. I don’t usually take much notice of the memories that Arse..ahem..Facebook churns out, but I have been looking at them and sharing them more since returning home.

A lot of my most beautiful and cherished memories are of spending time with my best friend, Chris.

Le Cafe des Stagiaries or CDS as we fondly called it

I spent a lovely evening out with my parents. We went for Thai food which was lovely, but they were having a Thai event on, and it was so loud we could hardly talk. After dinner, we walked along the road to a quieter bar, so we could talk over another bottle of wine.

I took a walk around Summerleys Nature Reserve near Northampton. I’d never been there before, so it was nice to go somewhere new with my camera.


One of my favourite subjects to photograph are flowers and you don’t have to go far to find some. These flowers are blooming in my parent’s back garden.

I took a trip to London to see the Van Gogh Exhibition at Tate Britain. I used to go to art galleries and exhibitions all the time in Bangkok, so I thought it was about time I started to explore what the UK has on offer.

The walk back from lunch to my office beats the Bangkok streets, it’s so green. It’s very peaceful and it’s full of wondrous nature.

Daily fix of nature is good for the soul

My brother, his girlfriend and I had an impromptu BBQ. It hadn’t been arranged, but we decided to make the most of the gorgeous weather that we had been having.

  1. All of your pictures are beautiful Gill. I also like the Damselfly a lot but the Okapi and the flowers are gorgeous too. Looks like you had a wonderful month of July. Keep well my friend.

      1. I’m fine despite feeling a little low on energy. I’m working on big projects, and it is exciting, but that leaves me with almost no time to reply to comments and visit my WP friends’ blogs. That saddens me a little. They are the ones that keep me going. Keep well Gill. xx

        1. I know, now I am working full time, going to the gym, freelance writing, I can never find time to do everything! I hope you are OK, sending positivity and energy your way. Much love xxx

    1. Thank you Inese, it was a lovely July. I do live in a beautiful and something I never realised until I came home. I never took any notice of what beauty was around me when I lived here πŸ™‚
