Full moon frost

It’s moving chaos here – but I just wanted to share some photos I took with my mobile phone when I was out on a gorgeous early morning walk just after Christmas. And yes – I was kicking myself for not taking my big camera with me…

As Ruby is at the breeders with her new puppies, we agreed to dogsit a friend’s dog (Ruby’s puppy from last year!) over Christmas and New Year.

We walked through a magical landscape

Of hoar frost and pink skies. It was – 14 C.

The full moon was just setting in the early morning

As the dogs played and zoomed in the snowy fields.

Our dog, Simson, loves the snow – who doesn’t?

I think he looks adorable in his snow beard.

I won’t be able to respond to your comments, but I do wish you all a new year filled with good things – and hope we can all pull together to make the world a kinder place.

Jetty, my jetty!

By the time you read this, we will have received the keys to our new (and bigger) house and I’ll be busy moving.

We’re not moving far – only 2.5 km away – but the lake won’t be right on my doorstep. No more rushing out in sun and rain to record my favourite jetty.

We will still be living near the same lake (but further south) – it’s about a kilometre walk away from the new house. So, I hope to find new views to photograph and share with you.

This jetty has been such an inspirational part of the last sixteen years and I’ll be sad to move – but happy that we have found something more suited to the needs of our family now.

The next week or so will be very busy, so please forgive me if I don’t get round to visiting you. In the meantime, please do keep in touch with me via Facebook. You’ll find me here: Lady Fi on Facebook.

Dawn’s hallelujah

Christmas Eve heralded its arrival

With a burst of colours

And joy at dawn.

Feeling festive

Christmas is soon upon us! Unfortunately, we’re suffering from grey weather and lack of snow, so I’ve delved into my archives to try and capture that festive feeling…

A magazine contacted me recently and bought this photo

Called Festive. I like the simplicity of this arrangement.

I love Nature’s

Very own fireworks. (We never have real ones.)

The Christmas spirit

Isn’t to be found in things —

Although I was happy to discover Santa’s sleigh a few years ago.

The Christmas spirit is one of love,

Compassion and forgiveness.

Wet dog picnic

I found some good memories of Oscar and the kids from a couple of years ago in my archives…

We don’t often have sunset picnics on the jetty – here’s why.

Notice the lovely dry jetty as we unpack our food.

Now look at how wet it is.

And this was the reason why —

Dear Oscar could never resist a swim!

Light and hope

The tradition of Lucia is my favourite time of year:

When the darkness is lit up with candles and song.

The light comes in many forms —

Whether it is the hope

For better times to come

Or as a metaphor for love and compassion:

Those two metaphorical candles that drive out the darkness.

Abstract skies

It’s been very mild (too mild!)

With misted silver views

Misty silver.jpg

And pastel pink skies.

Towards that golden horizon

As autumn drew to a close,

Leaves fell and a heron flew across the sky.

Ducks skimmed the water

Looking like scattering leaves

Before flying away

To a golden horizon.

The jetty

The geese flew away

Can you see them in the top left-hand corner?

Like falling leaves

Leaving behind the grey beauty of the jetty.

Puppy love – again!

Ruby gave birth to five healthy puppies last week!

It’s too soon for us to visit, so I’ve gone back in my archives

To find photos of her last litter of pups – from July last year.

Sweet.jpg

I hope you don’t mind.

After all, who can resist those sweet furry faces

Or big soulful eyes?

And – what’s even better – is that puppies

Grow up to be beautiful dogs – like Ruby.
