This is the small courtyard at the front of the house where Mitch has his evening dinner. It is a private, tropical looking space and I like to sit on a bench and watch the evening settle in as Mitch chews on his bones.
Most of this week it has been showery, overcast days, with the sun just making intermittent appearances. The rain has created a lush, green environment and today the sun came back out.
Looking over the back fence I noticed the setting sun creating a misty, aerial perspective. I had to rush in and grab the camera.
It caught The tips of the azalea on the corner of the neighbour’s garden.
And turned the bottle brush into tiny torches.
The grand, old tree across the road slowly sinks into the shadows.
This will be an apartment dwelling to thousands of insects and other creatures and I picture them all settling down for the night, or maybe just waking up to spend the night foraging.
We have been here 2 weeks now and only another 3 days before we go back home. How quickly the time has passed.
