The Golden Hour

If last night's sunset was stunning, tonight's actually managed to surpass it.

Between 5pm and 6pm was indeed a golden hour; the light was incredible and gilded everything in the most wonderful way. Even my awful face. Probably.

Still lots of pennyroyal growing out on the grasslands; new growth is coming through. This morning the buzzards were circling low overhead looking for thermals, white underwing patches easily visible. The myxomatosis outbreak is over; no more bunny carrion for them.

Now the night is with us, I'm just back from a run, 5km in 27.07 and I'm boiling hot.
