There’s nothing better
Than strolling along the beach
And drinking in the heady beauty
Of a fierce orange sunset,
While the pink balloon of the disappearing sun
Turns waves into silk.
All photos taken while on holiday in Baleal, Portugal, this summer.

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.

One evening in the early summer
There was a special light in the air.
Midges danced around Ruby like small diamonds;
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.

One of my favourite houses in West Sussex, England,
Is St. Mary’s: a timbered house from around 1470.
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!
I love this summer reflection
In the leaded window of the house.
Next door, is a secret garden
Where children play music
And leafy stars abound.

It’s been one of the wettest summers on record
Here in Sweden.
The flowers aren’t complaining.
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.

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.
They seemed to be chasing an airplane.
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!

I think the results
Are just perfect.

It’s been a rainy summer —
Which means pretty pink petals
Blowing in the wind;
With rain jewels;
And vivid splashes
Of sunny petals.
And after the rain,
In delicate rays of sun.

Better than TV:
