One chilly morning, the fog lay like
A silken scarf across the cemetery.
The church rose out of the golden mist
Like a ship riding on misty waves.
A caretaker’s van looked
Picturesque against the burnished sky;
And oh, the trees!
They floated in that sky of molten gold!
I’ll only be posting once this week as it gets crazy busy in the run-up to Christmas.

I get a lot of comments about how colourful my world is. That’s because I focus on the bright and the colours.
But as you can imagine, we do get a lot of grey days.
Even then, there is beauty in the stillness of the grey;
And in the perfect upside world of reflections.
Bare birches paint abstract pictures in the water;
And the pop of colourful buoys make them look like
(The grey almost adds a 3D feeling to the scenes, don’t you think?)
For more pops of colour, please visit: Our World.
If autumn could be summed up in a picture, it would be this one:
Golden leaves, the sauna house and Ruby posing by the water.
Simmie would rather explore
And swim than pose.
A week later, even more leaves have fallen off the trees,
Like whispers, and I see another portrait of the sauna house
Peeking out from behind the leaves.
For more portraits, please go to: Our World.
Autumn is a golden
Curtain of leaves;
It’s the russet fur
Of autumn-coloured dogs;
And the surprise of deer
Blending in with the trees.

I had a great visit with my mum in England.
The day of my arrival saw the tail end of Hurricane Ophelia,
Which created a lovely background for sheep silhouettes.
The next day was warm and misty.
On our walk, we saw a strange, n-ewe species:
The two-headed sheep!
(Sorry about the baa-d pun.)
Our destination was this old, Saxon church
Dating back to the late 11th century.
My father is buried in this beautiful (and slightly isolated) location.
I’m busy this week with work so will only be posting once.
For more postcards, please go to: Our World.

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.
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.
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.
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.
Late August is a beautiful time of year
Fields of gold glow in the early morning;
Curtains of light float to the ground;
And diamond drops glitter
In the deliciously chilly air.
