It was a glorious winter day
With snow, sun and sparkles on the trees.
That made me smile.
A long walk with friends
— That’s what made Simmie smile.
After two hours of running around
And enjoying the scenery —
We were all tired and happy.
(That’s my Ruby on the right as you look at the photo and Simmie on the back left
With Jessie, Ruby’s puppy, standing in front of him.)

It’s tulip season again — and it’s always
Lovely to bring spring inside when it’s still winter outside.
Ruby wanted to get in on the action
And provided a warm, fuzzy background for the tulips.
Now it was time to photograph Ruby,
But the tulips had other ideas and decided
To photobomb her!😉
(Or maybe it was just me having fun with different focus points.)
Then Simmie decided it was unfair
That he wasn’t in the pictures,
So he muscled in on the action,

At the moment, it’s grey and not particularly pretty out.
I do like grey skies, however,
Especially when they are laden with snow!
There is something magical about not seeing the sky
And being able to enjoy the dancing snowflakes (and a puppy) instead.
Of course, it’s even better if the sun breaks through the clouds
Just before disappearing behind the hill.

During the Christmas break, we looked after Jessie, one of Ruby’s puppies from 2014.
She and Simmie spent a long time
Chasing each other through frozen, silver grasses.
After a cold and invigorating swim,
The play continued.
(Can you see the water drops flying through the air?)
To an outsider, it might have looked
As if they were fighting —
But really it was more like love and frolicking
Between two really good friends.

No matter how you look at it —
Or without a dog:
Winter is beautiful.

It was a cold Christmas morning
And the reeds caught fire in the rising sun.
As the sky spread its golden glow,
Simmie broke through the ice for a refreshing swim.

Ruby gave birth to five healthy puppies last week!
It’s too soon for us to visit, so I’ve gone back in my archives
To find photos of her last litter of pups – from July last year.
I hope you don’t mind.
After all, who can resist those sweet furry faces
Or big soulful eyes?
And – what’s even better – is that puppies
Grow up to be beautiful dogs – like Ruby.

The golden light of October
Is as sweet as honey.
LIfe is hectic around here again
And I’m away with work, so won’t be able to comment on your blogs.
For more sweet moments, please visit: Our World.
To photobomb my shots.
And you know what?
I think the results
Are just perfect.
For more amazing results, please visit: Our World.
It’s amazing how much a sky – and a beach –
Can change in the space of a day or two:
From cloudy drama
To the joyfulness
Of dogs frolicking
In a glorious sunset.
