My inspiration walk

Image
At the end of the road where I live is a fenced area of grass. It isn't very big but it houses a family of immense oak trees and a scattering of bushes and rowan trees.

Most mornings you will find me there, walking my dog, perhaps talking to other dog-walkers, or just on my own with my pooch.

There are roads on two sides of it, houses on the other, and I can hear the traffic and the airplanes from the nearby airfield. This is no countryside haven but it's one of the places where I go to think. It is my inspiration walk.

This month, the copywriting continues and, after the month and a half of murder mystery-ing, I can return to my novel. 
The birds are singing, the air is sweet, and life is good. What are you doing this May?
