Orange beauty

There’s nothing better

Than strolling along the beach

Orange sun 1

And drinking in the heady beauty

Of a fierce orange sunset,

Sun setting 2

While the pink balloon of the disappearing sun

Turns waves into silk.

Disappearing

On sunlit wing

I love the way the sunlight

Can turn a gull’s wings

Into luminous ballet tutus.

It’s how I imagine the wings of angels look.

I’m away filming with work this week, so will not be able to visit or comment on your blogs.

Summer love

One evening in the early summer

There was a special light in the air.

Midges danced around Ruby like small diamonds;

Ruby

Brother and sister enjoyed

Some quiet moments of beauty while Simson charged in for a dip;

And a special glow painted the landscape

With summer light.

Leafy stars

One of my favourite houses in West Sussex, England,

Is St. Mary’s: a timbered house from around 1470.

House front

The house is still lived in today,

(And open to the public on certain afternoons)

And boasts many beautiful gardens.

Here is a peek at the back!

House from back

I love this summer reflection

In the leaded window of the house.

Reflection

Next door, is a secret garden

Where children play music

Child on flute

And leafy stars abound.

Summer rain

It’s been one of the wettest summers on record

Here in Sweden.

Peony

The flowers aren’t complaining.

Wild rose

In fact, they seem to unfurl

To drink in the rain

While unopened buds

Are happy just to be.

My parents need some help this week, so I’m away in England again. I might not be able to visit you or reply to your comments. But please know they are much appreciated.

Chasing planes

My daughter and I were enjoying a beautiful sunset together a few days ago —

And she was practising using my ‘big’ camera

When we suddenly saw a floating line of geese.

Birds

They seemed to be chasing an airplane.

Chasing

The geese flew away over the trees

And the plane flew right on up to infinity.

Photos by my talented daughter; editing by me = Teamwork!

Photobombing

Simson loves

To photobomb my shots.

Simsons at sunset

And you know what?

I think the results

Are just perfect.

Summer burst

Summer sun –

Bursting into

Golden flowers.

A rainy kind of beauty

It’s been a rainy summer —

Which means pretty pink petals

Blowing in the wind;

Hyancinth

Roses glowing

With rain jewels;

Rainy rose

And vivid splashes

Of sunny petals.

Pansy copy

And after the rain,

Blossoms unfurl

In delicate rays of sun.

Sunset boulevard

Better than TV:

A stunning sunset show

Performed by Nature.
