nighttime garden

Another beautiful day, althou not a heat wave. we tried to add many scented flowers to our garden and at the end of a warm June day the scent is very lovely – honeysuckle, roses – almost over, different lavender, thyme and sweetpea – althou my favorite is the night scented stock.

Because it may rain tomorrow, even during the night – went out in the dusk to cut some lavender before the rain dampens the flowers and little scared hearing something run past me in the dark snorting. we have badgers, foxes and deers that sometimes run thru our garden – imagine this is what i heard.

inside our cat has made himself comfortable besides the lavender, he is a little calmer now and likes to find a favorite place and contemplate

today drove over the Downs to look at the oxbow river at Seaford and back past Litlington and Lulington, past the Long Man and the White Horse carved on the chalk and stopped a while in an apple orchard attached to the ruins of an old monastry looking onto the Long Man. it felt very peaceful

Ghostly Galleon - m.joy


The Highwayman

The wind was a torrent of darkness among the gusty trees
The moon was a ghostly galleon tossed upon cloudy seas
The road was a ribbon of moonlight over the purple moor

And the highwayman came riding—
         Riding—riding—
The highwayman came riding, up to the old inn-door.
