Strawberry crush

A hot sunset

Sizzles over the lake.

A mother duck and her babies swim by.

Peace descends on the water

In the form of strawberry crush.

The colours of spring

Spring has burst forth

In an outburst of molten gold;

Colours.jpg

The ice melts

In shades of blue;

And petals offer up

Bouquets of purple.

Oh, how I love the colours of spring!

Frosted views

The snow is melting and the light is changing —

But who says that winter is without its own bright light?

When it is cold with hoar frost

Lying thick on the branches

And, with the sun shining,

The cold can be just as dazzling.

Feeling blue

The snow is gradually melting away —

But only last week, it lay thick in the fields

Below a blue canopy of silk.

Dragon skies

A fiery dragon

Swept across the sky —

Leaving behind

A purple haze.

How to photobomb successfully

Get your camera and two dogs

And walk down to the lake.

Admire the sunset with boats.

Turn away for a few seconds,

Allowing your furry friends to get into the photo.

Then click to get a sweet photobomb.

A Viking spring

Spring in Sweden is often a time

Of surprise snow, minus temperatures and hard frosts.

It might not be the kind of spring we want —

But it is beautiful anyway.

Pink heaven

As the temperatures drop,

The colours in the sky intensify.

Pink view.jpg

When the ice reflects back

The perfection of a pink and lilac dawn,

Oh buoy.jpg

You know you’re lucky enough

To be enjoying a slice of heaven.

Early morning sparkles

This is a tale of an early morning walk —

When the light of dawn turned reeds into glittery beauties.

Sparkles.jpg

A dog (Simmie) ran joyously out of the lake

Sprinkling water everywhere.

Later on, when he shook to dry himself,

Rainbow jewels of water flew into the air.

We met some sheep with yellow earrings;

They said, “Here’s looking at ewe!”

(Sorry about the baa-d joke.)

Ewes.jpg

On the way home, we breathed in the beauty

Of autumn tints reflected.

(All those fallen trees are the work of the beavers who live by the shore.)

Golden waves

The kids spent most of their time

In Ericeira, Portugal, surfing.

Arc.jpg

Some days, the waves

Were big and foamy and fun.

Some days, the lessons took place

Just as the sun was setting

Golden surf.jpg

And it looked as if the surfers

Were gliding on gilded waves.
