What is the proper way of expressing the idea of the evening of a summer day in British English? Is it just "summer evening", or "summer day evening", "summertime evening" etc? Thanks in advance for any help.

    Can you edit your question to add some context? An example sentence would be useful. Also, try using Google Ngram to check on usage of expressions: this Ngram shows that only "summer evening" is used. – Chappo Jul 6 '16 at 7:13
  • @Chappo - "summer evening" is just a title of one of my photos on flickr, I ask to check if this form is correct. – w.b Jul 6 '16 at 7:23

I'd say summer evening and a ngram book search backs that up ... ngram

  • But this is largely general reference, something OP should have done themselves. If you really wish to do the work for them, site integrity is better served by 'answering' in a 'comment', as Chappo already had done. However, I've not downvoted, as summer's evening is a good suggested variant. – Edwin Ashworth Jul 6 '16 at 7:24

    You are probably right, I've tried to delete this answer but can't as it's accepted so I've flagged it instead. And I didn't see Chappo's comment until later. – k1eran Jul 6 '16 at 7:38
