Lovebirds

I’m off to England at the end of the week —

It’s a very special occasion.

My brother is getting married!

So there will be celebrations, the eating of good food

Wedding.jpg

And some long walks up on the South Downs, I hope.

I’m looking forward to a love-filled week.

(I’ll be back on my blog in a week or so. Until then, take care!)

Romancing the earth

Sizzling orange, a glowing setting sun —

That’s when the sky romances the earth

With its beauty.

(Picture taken in Ericeira, Portugal.)

Dancing on the edge

I have lots more photos from Portugal to share with you —

But I thought I’d take a break this week

And show you the beauty of raindrops

Dancing on the edge of

Beautiful green leaves (some would say weeds).

Raindrops 1.jpg

These shots remind me of a lovely Tagore quote:

Let your life lightly dance on the edges of Time like dew on the tip of a leaf.

Transformative

Mist has magical powers:

It can transform ordinary objects

(Here a crane on the jetty in Ericeira, Portugal)

Into classic suspense movie shots.

It turns a sunrise

Into a moment of purple-tinged drama —

Mist.jpg

And if it lingers all day,

A misty sunset can turn

Landscapes into paintings.

Sunset surf

After the heat of Lisbon,

It was wonderful to escape

To the seaside village of Ericeira in Portugal.

We stayed in a beach house

With gorgeous views of the sunset

And surfers gliding over the golden sea.

Gone surfing

On Thursday, I’m flying off to Portugal again with the kids —

Time to enjoy Lisbon and then

Lifering.jpg

Off to the beach for

Surfing and sunsets.

These photos are from the Atlantic Coast, Portugal, taken last year.

(See you all again in about ten days.)

Strawberry surprise

The jetty in my old neighbourhood

Is still as delightfully wonky as ever.

And the world looks deliciously

Enchanting with the rising sun.

Postcards from June

June was a time of misty greens

And magical tunnels of leaves.

Green.jpg

It drizzled a lot,

Meaning that everything

little house.jpg

Appeared misty

And slightly out of focus.

But you know what –

I love it!

Golden goldens

It was a gorgeous evening

When I went out for a walk with the dogs.

Honey light.jpg

The summer light

Drizzled over grass and dogs alike

Lighting up the fields

With its honeyed glow

Dogs running.jpg

So that there was gold

Both in the sky

And in the grass.

Golden bowl sky

The summer solstice is

A time of beauty.

Solstice sun.jpg

The longest day slowly

Comes to an end

With a molten bowl

Of golden light.
