Night lights

Evening settles in with a peacefulness.


Warm lights aglow.


I light a candle on the back porch and sit awhile.



The garden comes to life with little white twinkle lights strung in the tree branches.




Darkness falls.
I go inside and get the coffee ready for the morning.


Nodding off while reading my book, I turn the lights off.


Twilight drops her curtain down, and pins it with a star.

Great post Donna. I love it. I tried taking some night photos not to long ago....NOT....lol. Guess I need to drag out the camera manual to find out how to do it right. ~ Lynn

Lovely post and photos, Donna.
It left me with a very peaceful feeling.
My husband & I lit a candle on our patio and enjoyed a glass of wine out there last night. So relaxing.

Have a great day today,
Kim

Hi Donna
Reading your blog today made me feel so mellow and relaxed. You took beautiful photos. We had twinkle lights in the trees in our last home and I just loved the atmosphere they created at night. The trees here are too tall and I haven't been able to convince my dear husband to climb up a ladder and venture out on some long branches, so we don't have any.
Hugs, Rhondi
