Let me take you on an autumn walk —
Through crunchy leaves and quiet fields of deer.
Down to the lake we go,
Simmie leads the way to upside-down peace.
Further along, Ruby – Queen of jumping on stones –
Poses in front of a tree in full foliage firework.
For more leafy views, please visit: Our World.
The pendulum has swung, and now the days
Will be shorter than the evenings.
This means early morning mists
And emerald green reflections
Slowly turning to rust.
Calm reflections, red houses
And beautiful views
Mean autumn is slowly on its way.
For more amazing views, please go to: Our World.
Cone you feel it?
Summer is coming to a beautiful end.
End in golden hays (and a dog purveying his kingdom).
The bees make even
The humble onion flower bee-utiful.
Our walk ends with
A dewy heart.
Summer is leaf-ing – and so are my bad puns!

Last week, I stayed in a charming village a couple of hours north of Stockholm.
I discovered a sculpture of silver stallions with half moons on their heads.
As the sun set in a purple haze,
Those half moons seemed to scoop up the real moon.
It was a lovely sight!

The Old City of Dubrovnik in southern Croatia is very old.
Dating back to the 7th century, it has been built and re-built over hundreds of years.
It has a wide variety of churches and other buildings —
Byzantine, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque.
The restored roof tiles look good
Against the old stone.
The city walls were built in the 14th and 15th centuries
And encircle what is now the ‘modern’ city of Dubrovnik.
About 42,000 people live in those old houses and flats!
For more old perspectives, please go to: Our World.
One of the dogs’ favourite places for a swim
Is the jetty next to the floating sauna on our local lake.
I like it too —
Because of all the photo opportunities it gives!
It’s a peaceful place in the early mornings,
Where you can meditate on clouds and their reflections.
(Photos taken in early May.)

First off – a HUGE sorry for not clicking the right buttons for Our World so that the linky wasn’t available last week. But don’t worry – the meme is up and running as normal now – will open at the normal time!
Had a lovely time in Montenegro – it was so beautiful! Work and deadlines tomorrow so I’m just posting a photo I snapped with my mobile phone from the bus window.
(I probably won’t have time to visit you though due to crazy work load!)
For more beautiful blues, please go to: Our World. (Yes – it WILL be working!)
I’m going away to Montenegro and Croatia with the kids for a week —
To see new horizons and sights.
In the meantime, I leave you with
A pretty, pink sunset down at the lake.
(I won’t be around to comment on your blogs for about ten days.
But don’t worry, Our World will be up and running as normal!)

And, of course, Our World!
My hotel in London was right opposite the Tower of London and Tower Bridge.
Here’s Tower Bridge with elegant accents of blue.
It was cloudy for almost all of my visit –
But I did manage one pink morning (snapped on my mobile phone).
Parts of the old Roman wall of London
Are visible every now and then.
(I like the way the old stone is reflected in the modern glass on the left.)
One late evening saw us in Chinatown
Under red flags and a popcorn-cloud sky.
For more postcards, please go to: Our World.
Vivid red sky
And a sizzling reflection;
The setting sun balances
Later on, a bird flies by.
(All photos straight out of the camera.)
I’m going to London at the end of the week and then filming in Gothenburg as soon as I get back, so I won’t be posting for about ten days.

And don’t forget Skywatch on Friday.
