All This And Raspberries Too?

Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:
And yet, I say unto you, that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

These are some of the flowers that are scattered across my client's cottage grounds.

Once years ago, someone kept the gardens but now the flowers and plants grow in wild profusion all over the place.

Even though they look unkempt, they still hold a certain charm!

Some of them find their way into my client's dwellings and are placed into several little vases for the lady of the house to enjoy.

And as for the raspberries they have found THEIR way into the fruit salad that one of her secret admirers makes for her every weekend!

Mr. Sun Says Good Night On A Tuesday Evening

For some reason my client wanted me to take some pictures of the sunset this Tuesday.

"It is a while since you took any", she explained.

"Of course I will! I don't mind at all!"

And I am GLAD I did!

Before turning my camera's eye to the lake which was already on fire with the dazzling rays of the sun, I looked up the shady lane and noticed a few splashes of sunlight on the wood pile and on a few small trees.

The grass by the lake seemed to be on fire too with all the sun's brightness, so as I took one picture, I thought to myself that THIS scene deserved ANOTHER shot from a different angle.

I could not help but notice the huge trees on the lawn getting a large piece of the action, so the camera snapped again!

The shore was not as golden as usual but I thought maybe I better take a picture of that also, and as I did, I noticed one lone boat on the lake taking in the last of the sun's glory and that rascal of a sun was hiding in a tree and trying to peek in on the young couple who were enjoying their selves in the cool of the evening.

A lonely duck was taking a cool bath before he would be climbing into bed for the night, for after all it HAD been a very hot day!

Well, as the sun was finally telling us all Goodnight; the lane, the trees, the boaters, the duck and I, he quietly whispered into my ear, "Don't forget to visit the full moon tomorrow! I hear that it is going to be one spectacular sight!"

"Alas", I thought to myself, "Tomorrow is my day off! I won't be here!"

"Well Goodnight Mr. Sun", I said out loud. "We will have to leave that ONE SPECTACULAR sight for Betty to take care of!"

And I know she can be trusted to do just that!
