This never happens
It's hot here. And there's no breeze. Last night it was hard to sleep. But--something wonderful happened tonight. I got to sit outside on my patio with candles burning on the tables and lights twinkling in the arbour and the plum tree as the sky turned from blue to purple to black. This is very rare for Victoria. Usually the evenings are breezy even if the day has been warm. But tonight it's still. And it's absolutely lovely.
Here's what my arbour looked like this evening. And these are candles hanging in my tree.
Isn't it pretty? I've been sitting out there for a while enjoying a little glass of white wine and the coolness and the beauty. Too bad Harry's already gone to bed!
Ah well. Beauty doesn't need to be shared to be appreciated. Now that I've had some time in this loveliness I can retire to my airless bedroom. I hope you're surviving the summer heat if that's what you're experiencing. And don't forget to appreciate the beauty of a still evening.
