August is a month of great beauty in my garden.

Here are some images taken right before dusk, a time when the birds nest in for the evening, when butterflies stop fluttering and our honeybees have returned to their hives

I sometimes think it is during these quieter hours when I return to the garden not to work, but to pause and soak in the beauty abundant all around me that I enjoy myself the most.

The fairies are in their chambers refreshed from a long afternoon nap after their busy day spent tending the flora all around them.

Come twilight they will sing and dance among the flowers with the wildlings, not to work but to play.

Every garden is someone’s paradise, a source of beauty , harvest and contemplation.
