When the sun gets low in the western sky, the light cuts across the backyard and glows through the foliage.
The tropical leaves of bananas, cannas, gingers and cyperus are a bright reflection of the sunlight's last rays.
Even the common Purple Queen becomes a translucent beauty in this magic light.
The bog area which is usually pretty non-descript becomes a bright beauty.
The last shadows play against the back fence and then the day is done.
(Just finished weeding and mulching this area along the back fence and wanted someone to see it before the weeds grew back.)
