Darkness Falls Early on the Land


Stars of the Night
I noticed the early passing of the day on Sunday. 

The darkness arrived early during the evening. Because of the clouds, the sunset was not visible and it was dark by about 7:30 PM. 

Summer has truly departed.

The long evenings enjoying the additional light has given way to the autumn and shorter days. The end of DST, or Daylight Saving Time, is still over a month away, November 5, but the daylight is becoming shorter and shorter. 

I need to pack more activity into the short daylight which remains between when I arrive home and darkness falls.

I guess that is why we have two fire tables and one fire pit--so we can enjoy the evenings longer as the night falls.
