Wandering around the old streets of Thornton, a village near Bradford, where my perpetual muses, the literary Brontë Sisters were born at the beginning of 19th century, I stumbled upon a little heaven on earth which is Sapgate Community Gardens. It is a gorgeous nature spot with beautiful elevated views where the locals plant whatever they fancy for everyone's enjoyment. The gardens are a precious gem every village should have, especially in today's climate where an urgent need has arisen for humankind to reclaim its connection and appreciation of nature in order to preserve itself.

I have been walking Haworth and Stanbury Moors in Brontë Country for many years now, but I have never had or seized a chance to be there on a beautiful summer sunset evening until last week. Oh my, the magic of it makes me want to witness the beauty as many times as possible in the future. On this particular occasion the sunset may have not been as spectacular as it can possible be, but nevertheless, the experience of being on those bleak hills as the sun was slowly slipping below the horizon bathing the landscape in warm, soft glow mingled with blue fading light was simply sublime.
