Twilight walking

Across the farm and up to the green lane and Kiffer came too. It was late and the light was falling out of the day and stars were beginning to shine. The sky was a velvet blue and in the lane the branches of the thorn trees were like sharp bars.

We did not go far, though Kiffer wanted to go on to the top of the hill. This is the time of foxes and badgers and it was Kiffer's first time away from the house. Coming back down the hill she lingered in the lane and made deamon eyes in the dark behind Pixie.

Hooray! I am glad Kiffer gets to come walking, too.

Oh, Kiffer! You fit in so well. It's good that you can join the others for walks and I'm sure you will go to the high rocks very soon.
Please tell Her that I have mentioned
your blog in the "excellent blogs" list.
