What a nice night for an evening.
~ Steven Wright
There's a peaceful feeling about a late summer afternoon, as it gently ushers us into the evening. The sunlight transforms from intense, to golden and from flirty to coy. All of the images below were taken at the dinner hour or beyond. Walk with me and enjoy them, will you?
Wild roses bloomed at Frank's place for the first time that I've ever noticed. I think they were a pleasant surprise to him, also.
This is one of the usual roses we see in bloom, each summer. For some reason, I like how it looks so bright and extended in the foreground as if it's about to catch that ball in the background.
Filtered sunlight illuminates the wild phlox in the field.
It's a shame that you can't smell them. Their scent is intoxicating early in the season.
As the sun begins its descent in the sky, the outlined leaves seem to absorb its warmth with back lit beauty.
The birds bring the final meal of the day to their young.
The moon climbs the sky to watch over the earth.
And all is well with the world.

It's pretty obvious that the Posts of the Week are no longer weekly at this point - nor do they appear on what used to be my Wednesday schedule. I do believe I will get back to that habit once I'm settled in my new place but that's going to take a while. I've not even put my old place on the market yet.
We take possession of our new home on Wednesday. Until I'm there for good, I'll be doing some back and forth traveling between each place. For now, Frank and I will be up there for a couple of weeks. My computer is staying back in the old place so my blog visits will be less than regular for a while. I will try to schedule some posts before I go. I'll probably have Frank's laptop to use occasionally - that's if our internet connection is set up there as planned.
So if you don't hear from me for a bit (aside from my scheduled posts), you'll know why.
And now, without further delay, here are the Posts of the Week. The icon below is yours for the taking if if your blog post is named as a POTW.
