The Year of SunsetsPosted: June 17, 2010 Filed under: garden, home, life, nature, pond, Spring, weather | Tags: Cleveland Botanical Garden, flowers, lillies, sunset, toads 8 Comments
(Walking down the garden path. Cleveland Botanical Garden.)
I think 2010 is going to be the year of sunsets for me. Almost every evening the sun puts on a good show of light and colors. “Almost” because sometimes the clouds that work with the sun in bringing us the remarkable sunsets are too thick and/or it is flat out raining. This is also the year of big rains.
Yesterday the clouds scattered and we got to see some blue sky. It was one of my favorite kind of days for taking pictures.
You can tell I really don’t have anything to write about today. I’m rambling on about the weather.
We’re into the orange season of the year now (when the daylillies and other orange flowers bloom). Daylillies are almost like weeds around here, growing in ditches along the back country roads. It’s beautiful.
A friend suggested that we name the toad living in the toad house in the flower bed. We have agreed that Mr. Belvedere is a good name for him. I went out to see how he felt about it but he wasn’t home.
He must have been out and about enjoying the day too. Or maybe he was scouting out a good location to watch the sunset.
I thoroughly enjoyed your ramblings about the weather, Robin. I appreciate the small, seemingly insignificant things in life now, more than ever before. They are huge to me! Gorgeous photos. 🙂
Thank you, Joanne.
I’m not sure if it’s a matter of age or life experience but I’ve come to appreciate the small stuff too. 🙂
Gorgeous color and light. I think my favorite are the gloves suspended from teh clothes line.
Thank you, Marcie. 🙂
I like the gloves too. They are finished with their work for the day and just hanging out.
As long as sunsets and rain keep giving you awesome pictures, I say hooray for sunsets and rain! Also, Mr. Belvedere is a cute name for a toad – mostly because I can imagine a small toad with a name tag bigger than he is that says Mr. Belvedere and it makes me smile 🙂
Makes me smile too, Meredith. 🙂

Thank you, Kel. It was a divine evening. 🙂
