As the Sun Sets

A perfect summer’s day was followed by a perfect summer’s evening. How could I resist sitting on my patio with a glass of wine watching the sun go down behind ‘my oak tree’?

I sat enjoying the warm air and the sounds of nature…

I wondered if my friend the hedgehog would show his face, but he proved a little shy this evening. The frog that surprised me a couple of weeks ago, when I found him sitting on the top of the watering can was also absent. I was however visited by a bat buzzing around the garden on a quest for an evening snack. After he left, a large moth flew into the house and thankfully flew straight back out again. I shut the door quickly so he could not make a return visit.

A perfect way to spend an evening :-)

    So right Cherie, the opportunities to do that which you described are few and far between, so many summers have the longest days filled with chilly evenings cloud and worse, these wonderful moments have to taken when given.

      We sat out in my Mum’s garden this evening. It is the first time for many years that we have been able to do that…

      We should seize the moment and enjoy :-)

    Too bad Mr. C was not there to enjoy it with you.
    I can picture you on the patio.
