When to Visit?
April is Springtime and can be showery, May is my favourite month, the trees are that fresh green, poppies are in the fields, June is lovely, it's great for those who don't like the summer heat, wildflowers are in the mountains, and sunflowers in the fields. July and August are generally very hot, beach life is in full swing. September is cooling down again, October can has lovely Autumn days.
