GOOD NIGHT

Just came in from watching the first stars come out to play. The sky is still a faint blue, and you
can here some kids playing just down the street. School's still a month or so away here so they
don't have to meet the bus in the morning.

It's cooler than it's been the last couple of nights. You can still just make out the colors of the
flowers closest to the house.The air is damp from watering. It has that "green" scent no air
freshener company has ever been able to duplicate. The white climbing rose next to the porch
still sends a little perfume my way. The bees and butterflies are all tucked in with the sunbeams
for the night. The way is clear for the moths and skeeters to play in the starshine. Sweet dreams
all.

We who live in the Pacific Northwest should NOT presume to mention "skeeters."  Take it from one who has experienced some REAL skeeters...  Lisa  :-]

One of my two favorite times of the day. There's something so peaceful and nostagic about that time. You described it well. :-) ---Robbie
