Golden moments

I’m away all week – off to England

To visit my mum.

Oldhouse.jpg

Time to enjoy family, old houses

And my mum’s garden —

Hibiscus.jpg

And, of course, my favourite walk

Up on the Sussex Downs.

(I wont’ be around to visit you this week.)

Autumn scenes

It’s early autumn here …

And the fields are full of wildflowers still —

And a dog or two.

(A wolf was spotted here a couple of weeks ago too, but it’s long gone.)

There’s nothing more wonderful

Than running free in autumn colours.

When life is a beach

There is nothing as sizzling

As a beautiful Mediterranean sunset.

Take a huge sun —

Splash on some colour and a dog —

And enjoy the tequila sunset.

Autumn critters

I love the soft, misty feel of autumn —

Especially when a deer family decides to rest in the fields as I take my photo!

The temperatures are still quite mild

And Simmie loves nothing more than swimming in the lake.

This is his face when I ask him to come out. (That’s right – he doesn’t want to!)

As for Ruby,

She is content just catching leaves.

How to photobomb successfully

Get your camera and two dogs

And walk down to the lake.

Admire the sunset with boats.

Turn away for a few seconds,

Allowing your furry friends to get into the photo.

Then click to get a sweet photobomb.

The golden path

The equinox has been and gone,

Which means it’s getting dark so early on in the evenings.

We have to chase the light —

Or perhaps the light is chasing us.

(This is Simmie, who turned four this weekend.)

But when the sun comes out,

The woods are filled with gold.

September swan song

Whether in the early morning,

With fog and stripes of light;

Swan stripes.jpg

Or dressed in purple gauze

At first light;

Swanlake.jpg

And even winging away at sunset

On the tips of feathers —

September’s swan song is beautiful.

August’s universe

August offers up a universe of lovely bouquets:

A dazzling pink galaxy of flowers;

Hotpink.jpg

Yellow suns floating in the wind;

Yellowsun.jpg

Or a floral star in the sky;

Yellowstar.jpg

And, finally, an orange planet

Of gorgeous, sunlit petals.

Floating in mist

The first cool morning:

Autumn mist is golden

As it caresses trees

Mist.jpg

And floats over the lone dog walker.

(All photos snapped with my mobile phone.)

All that glitters is not gold

Although we often judge people, countries, cities

On outward appearances, there is far more to us

Than meets the eye.

Gold.jpg

Despite current political rhetoric and media

That would have us believe we are each other’s enemies,

Night.jpg

I truly believe that there is far more that unites us as humans.

We just need to make sure we remember that.

So, here’s to no more hate and a lot more love!

(New York looks good from the New Jersey side at sunset!)
