One of my favorite times of day
I have two times of day that I enjoy more than any other times.
The first is early in the morning when all is quiet, except for the rooster now and then, the sunlight trying to peek in between our tall pine trees as the sun comes up from the east.
The other time is the late afternoon, when the sun is illuminating the south side of house.
The south side is the side where our entrance is.
It is all so the side where the road winds it's way up from the highway, allowing cars and trucks to bounce and creak as they traverse the cobblestones which we had embedded into the dirt 15 years ago.
It seems that maybe in a year or two we will need to have someone reset the stones, each year it is become less and less "smooth" as we had when they first got inserted one by one into the fertile soil we have.
The other reason I love the afternoon sun is that we can sit under the tile overhang, enjoy the setting sun and bask in the remaining warmth the rays have to offer. But the real reason is the view I get as the rays break through the tall pine needles casting an welcoming hand inviting someone to drive up to our home.
The photo doesn't do justice to the scene.
