    Wow! This is gorgeous. That’s my favorite time of day as well. Your blues are too lovely to describle.

    Ditto to Nancy– too beautiful to describe. I saw the sky this color pulling all-nighters in high school about an hour & a half before sunrise, and for the lack of words & the vulgar vocabulary of adolescence named it “f***ing-beautiful blue.” Can’t say it was eloquent or creative. There just were no words. I used to love that time of day then, at least if I was nearing the end of my assignment & knew how I was going to finish it from that point. I prefer the gloaming infinitely more than those wee hours of the morning now, yes, especially when I see the bats coming out to hunt the bugs, just visible in what is left of the light in the blue sky. I’m a big fan of bats, too. Magical pick!

    Your lovely blue pick reminds me of a song I love: Twilight Time, sung by Nat King Cole. I too love that time of day, especially during seasons when the mosquitos are thick! That’s why I love BATS! Love to watch them flit and fly in the dusk, gobbling up those mosquitos! People who study them are very concerned about White Nose Disease that is wiping out whole populations of these valuable critters!
    But I agree with all above – your pick is magical.

    I agree that your pick is gorgeous, and I also enjoy watching bats flit around. Dragonflies also eat mosquitoes. Blue is my favorite color, so this really popped out to me. Hopefully a POD!

    Congrats on your wonderful POD of the quiet time. The bats are ok as long as they aren’t in your house chasing you and your family and diving at you.

    Beautiful items in this POD! I also like this time of day when it’s quiet, stars are just coming out, and the little bats start darting around our yard. Congratulations!
