Golden crunch

The gloomy grey weather continues …

Crunch.jpg

So, I’m looking back to October’s golden crunch

When leaves floated on fog

Fog.jpg

And grass crunched underfoot

As we enjoyed the view.

Orange you glad it’s November

Our November has been mild and misty

With burnished tones.

Mist.jpg

Sometimes the sky burns orange

As the geese honk their farewells.

And a stray leaf

Falls gently on orange fur.

Spooky skies

Early morning mist

Drapes the trees in pink scarves;

And when the sun breaks through,

It’s spook-tacular!

Fabulous fog

I tried to grab some fog …

And I don’t think I mist!

Trees.jpg

I love the way fog

Transforms everything:

Trees, dog, and boat.

Ruby’s favourite pastime

Is to jump up on tall rocks

And wait for treats (fog or no fog).

Autumnal notes

I love the beginning of autumn —

With its spooky spider web trees;

Webs.jpg

Dogs enjoying the view

And a swim.

And I love it when the golden fields

Are a backdrop to those birds

That look like musical notes.

Reflected emerald

The pendulum has swung, and now the days

Will be shorter than the evenings.

Misty.jpg

This means early morning mists

And emerald green reflections

Reflections.jpg

Slowly turning to rust.

Calm reflections, red houses

And beautiful views

Mean autumn is slowly on its way.

Postcards from August

Cone you feel it?

Summer is coming to a beautiful end.

Cone.jpg

Golden days

End in golden hays (and a dog purveying his kingdom).

Simmie.jpg

The bees make even

The humble onion flower bee-utiful.

Bee-autiful.jpg

Our walk ends with

A dewy heart.

Summer is leaf-ing – and so are my bad puns!

Summer idyll

Let me tell you the story of summer —

Of long, hot evenings and herons skimming the sky.

Sunsetting.jpg

It’s a story of dogs and a lake

Dogs.jpg

And the sighting of beavers swimming in the pink-tinged water.

It’s the story of sharing a beautiful sunset

Beaver.jpg

With a stranger, who had driven all the way to my small part of the world,

From Russia with his family.

And now it’s a story I share with you.

Peacock blue

Lokrum Island is a short boat ride away from the hustle and bustle of Dubrovnik, Croatia.

It’s a nature reserve dominated by wild bunnies and peacocks and peahens.

The hens had just had their babies – here they are doing some synchronized grooming.

Synchronized grooming.jpg

The peacocks are pretty serious about grooming too!

His head seems to have disappeared into his feathers.

Later on, the well-groomed peacock

Sat and enjoyed the view

Of the stones

And the peacock blue waters.

Summer sweets

I haven’t had time to upload and go through my holiday photos yet,

So thought I’d share what makes summer so special.

Swan.jpg

It can be a stunning swan sunset,

Or a bee pollinating a poppy.

Poppywithbee.jpg

It is the discovery

Of flowers wearing wigs,

Wigs.jpg

And the pink fireworks

Of an onion flower.
