I’m away all week – off to England
To visit my mum.
Time to enjoy family, old houses
And my mum’s garden —
And, of course, my favourite walk
Up on the Sussex Downs.
(I wont’ be around to visit you this week.)
For more beautiful views, please visit: Our World.
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.

And pop over to: Skywatch too.
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.
For more dazzling moments, please go to: Skywatch.
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.
For more autumn shots, please go to: Our World.
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 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.
For more gold, please visit: Our World.
Whether in the early morning,
With fog and stripes of light;
Or dressed in purple gauze
At first light;
And even winging away at sunset
On the tips of feathers —
September’s swan song is beautiful.
For more amazing skies, please go to: Skywatch.
August offers up a universe of lovely bouquets:
A dazzling pink galaxy of flowers;
Yellow suns floating in the wind;
Or a floral star in the sky;
And, finally, an orange planet
Of gorgeous, sunlit petals.
For more cosmic shots, please visit: Our World.
The first cool morning:
Autumn mist is golden
As it caresses trees
And floats over the lone dog walker.
(All photos snapped with my mobile phone.)
For more mist-erious shots, please visit: Skywatch.
Although we often judge people, countries, cities
On outward appearances, there is far more to us
Than meets the eye.
Despite current political rhetoric and media
That would have us believe we are each other’s enemies,
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!)
