The courtyard at dusk

The courtyard at dusk here at Ednovean Farm seems to hold a special magic as the sea birds fly in groups overhead back to the coast to roost for the night and the ever busy sparrows fall silent. The heat of the day hangs dreamily in the air held in the mellow stones of the building and with it an embracing peace.

Tonight the ancient stones of the old building took on a mellow golden glow with the dieing rays of the sun as they did last night and perhaps have done for hundreds of years and I love to spend a few minutes just sitting in the this quiet place perhaps with a guttering outdoor candle and tonight we spotted a new discreet companion for a few minutes before he whisked himself away to the safety of a tree
A ring dove above our heads as we sat with a late cup of coffee
