By the time you read this, I’ll be visiting my mum in England (Sussex).
Hopefully, the rain will have cleared
And the trees will be out in full bloom.
We’re going on holiday
To Eastbourne, a town on the south coast,
So I hope to relax, spend quality time with my mum
And – of course, get some good views of the sea!
(All photos from previous trips back ‘home’.)
I won’t be visiting any of you this week, but a big thank you for popping by.
Do check out: Our World.
You never know what surprises spring might reveal:
A floating bench on purple-tinted water at sunset;
Three buds looking
Like small owls on a branch;
Underneath a park bench;
And, popping up out of the field,
For more surprises, please go to: Our World.
Spring has burst forth
In an outburst of molten gold;
The ice melts
In shades of blue;
And petals offer up
Bouquets of purple.
Oh, how I love the colours of spring!
For more spring, please go to: Our World.
Winter seems to be waning —
I say ‘seems’ as this is Sweden and it can snow even in June!
But I don’t think we will see scenes like this one again this winter:
With thick snow on the iced over lake.
It’s cold in the mornings,
So, if we are lucky,
We can still enjoy rim-frosted green lanterns
For more wintry or spring-like or even autumn shots, please visit: Our World.
I haven’t been walking down to the lake that often
As the path is treacherously icy;
But when we do make it down there, Ruby is Queen of all she can see.
Splashes of purple
Look like frozen ribbons
Declaring ‘It’s not spring yet.’
No matter how much we pine (get the pun?)
For warmer times, we just have to appreciate what we have.
For more moments in time, please visit: Our World.
Ruby loves to play hide-and-seek
Among the trees –
While Simmie says
Peekaboo with snow.
What about this photo –
Can you spot the dog?
What about now? Only teasing –
I think this is a fox we spotted in the field.
It was lying down in the snow and got up with difficulty.
It was much bigger than Simmie so, at first, I thought it was a wolf.
We looked at each other for a long time – each of us not so different from the other.
Then we went our separate ways.
For more furry and non-furry shots, please visit: Our World.
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.
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.
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.
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.
