The garden just before the shadows of the evening

I must admit that I don’t sit out in the garden often enough during the day, and that’s because I’m often working or running about, and just don’t have the time. But the evenings, especially warm summer evenings, are my perfect time for garden sitting. I love how the white flowers shine and reduce everything to a black and white world, and I love how the light of the setting sun bounces around the garden and reflects off the water and the few mirrored surfaces. Morgan loves it too. She’s into prime hunting mode and getting very excited. Don’t worry, she’s not a hunter…just likes to think she is. πŸ˜€

    It’s wonderful seeing a garden at different times of the day. Fragrances change also. I have been going out late late at night with my flashlight and there is a whole new world out there that is not active in the day/early evening light.

      That’s so true Rosemary. πŸ˜€ When I’m in England I love to stroll the garden in the evening because we get hedgehogs, foxes and bats! πŸ˜€

    gorgeous …loving the new BIG photos .. perhaps a larger font would work too .. not a huge size but maybe a bump up

    • Reply Veronica June 8, 2015 at 5:25 am

      Thanks Daryl, me too! I haven’t found a way within this theme to make the fonts a bit larger, but C and I are working on it. That would be my ideal as well. πŸ˜€

    oh i love sitting out in our back yard in the evening as well. I love the way the light softens the colors in the flowers. I have been happy watching our bird feeders and the large variety of birds that are nesting in our bird houses and trees.
