This is a short blog. It’s all about pictures, not about words. It’s about the moment, on the turn from Spring to Summer, as we rush towards the summer solstice, when we suddenly realise that it is light later and later, evenings longer… that the sun is setting further and further into the west before it goes down below the horizon. I have always loved the long summer evenings; as the light fragments and stretches into a long dusk. There is an extraordinary moment in the garden just as the sun goes down… the gloaming.
This weekend, Charlie was in London and I was in Dorset; I’m back in London now, and he’s gone to France to help his friend Bridget set up house for a couple of days. So the evenings feel a little solitary, but all the more beautiful for it. Charlie’s gardening is looking amazing – both here on the roof, and down west.
So I thought we’d just sit back, and enjoy some photographs of the gardens by dusk.
Have a really great week ahead. There are exciting things happening at Ben P towers at the moment, but that can all wait for another day!
