There had been a little rain, and the day was ending, and I was washing dishes.
It was yesterday.
There is a window directly over the kitchen sink, planned that way, and looking out that window with wet hands and suds or not, this is what you see, assuming the window is open because the glass is opaque.
The glass is opaque because my child bride doesn’t want to look at this while washing dishes, something she does infrequently (it’s my job), even though I like this scene, especially at dusk. If I’m lucky (and I often am), there will be a Golden Evening.
A Golden Evening occurs when a particular set of light and other factors comes together at the same few moments to create a special atmosphere that is quite lovely.
I got one yesterday. While washing dishes. Orange and green walls accentuate the phenomenon. The photo does it no justice. My camera is low-end.
No matter. It’s an excuse to show the Garden Patio, which I have shown only once, I think, during its construction last year. Of course, it was not “furnished” then.
Looking through this window a decade back showed only grass and that water tank, plus the orange property wall. We’ve since constructed the green wall to separate and hide this area and the tile roof to keep gardening gear dry.
The paint was fresh years ago. Now it has a patina.
Like me. Once fresh, now sporting a patina.
