We’re having a lovely winter this spring,
But the dogs don’t mind.
With the return of the light,
The colour is coming back —
And sometimes in a bright flash of pink.
Only posting once this week due to work.
A fiery dragon
Swept across the sky —
A purple haze.
For more drama, please visit: Skywatch.
The snow hangs heavy on the trees.
But oh, that lovely March light
Bursts into song to let us know
That if we hang on just a little bit longer
Then spring will be here.
For more foggy light, please go to: Our World.
Fog – a majestic backdrop
For a red dog (or two);
Fog – veiling landscape
Fog – settling on the ground
Like a silken scarf.

When winter gives you freezing cold temperatures
And lots of snow,
The best thing is to embrace it
And smile —
And meet it with wonder and joy.
For more smiles, please go to: Our World.
The path leads through
Snowy beauty —
All the way
To pink popcorn cloud skies.

It’s real winter at last!
The sun is so bright it hurts my eyes.
The plants and trees
Are covered in glittering ice crystals.
And it’s quite cold too —
So cold that even the icicles have icicles on them!
Ruby doesn’t mind the
Crystals on her face.
(Neither does Simmie but he’s too busy running around for me to snap a shot of him.)
Ruby waits patiently
For me to warm up my frozen fingers
Before we carry on with our beautiful walk.
For more icy or sunny scenes, please visit: Our World.
In between the snowfalls,
A hiatus of freezing fog:
Golden veils fall over the landscape —
Bringing peace, silence and beauty.

In honour of the Chinese New Year – it’s Year of the Dog –
I’m featuring some of my favourite furry friends.
Those of you who have followed me for a while will recognize my very best fuzzy friend, Oscar.
When he died,
Two more furry friends, Ruby and Simmie, came into my life.
(It’s not often I get them both in the same picture.)
I love the way dogs embrace life –
And make the most of what they have:
Whether it’s a snowstorm
Or a large stick.
We can learn a lot from dogs.
For more furry friends or otherwise, please visit: Our World.
Early morning dawn:
I take out my mobile phone as I sit in a car and capture
The romance of the sky over Stockholm.
(I like the way the car window frames the cityscape.)
On the way home from work,
Lilac and pink clouds
Bid the sun farewell at sunset.
