Earlier in the month- there are three hours left of September, if I type fast I can still say "earlier in the month" and have it mean what I mean it to say- I invited you in for a Peek Behind the Garden Gate and then without squiring you around much I left, a rare occurance, and went up to the Sierra Nevada mountains... so while I wait for the cats to come home tonight I will upload a few photos of other vistas in and from the gardens that I took after sunset this evening.
My flash went off and lit the fern fronds
but if I crop them out, you won't be able to see the handsome gate.
Down the main path toward the main house...all the plants on the left edge have been dug out and transplanted elsewhere this week....baby tears and blue star creeper are going to hug the path. The wall is so lovely it the eye simply wants to wind smoothly right down the wall and see out to the sea. I 'll take a morning sun photograph some time soon...
Sitting in an old stuffed chair outside the cottage front door....
Another bench studies this view...you are looking south west
The light on the water changes all day long but the evening changes startle with beauty and stir both longings and gratitudes.
Are the waters backdrop or are the features of the land, the trees and bushes, simply a frame for the waters?
The chimneys of the main house under a crescent moon....still no cats...but I must say good night.
