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!)
For more peace, please go to: Skywatch.
And, of course, 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.
For more dazzling stories, please go to: Our World.
And don’t forget Skywatch on Friday.
My Saturday nights are fairly exciting 🙂 :
They consist of watching
The sun setting over the lake:
Preferable with a burnt orange sky
And balloons gently floating away on the horizon.

During my trip to Sussex, I climbed up Beachy Head.
The walk is a steep one – but I was joined
By wildflowers and stunted trees waving their hair in the wind.
The blue of the sea faded
Into the blue of the sky.
I heard the skylarks – and also a more unusual sound –
Bagpipes being played by a lone piper (intent on not annoying his neighbours?)
He played well – and the music made the scenery even more majestic.

I had a lovely visit with my mum!
Before going off to the hotel where we were staying,
She urged me to walk to the neighbouring village
To enjoy the house with the wisteria.
And I’m glad I did!
The front door declared the house was called
The Old Priory.
Look at the windows and the flowers —
I fell in love. Who wouldn’t?
For more love, please go to: Our World.
You never know what surprises spring might reveal:
A floating bench on purple-tinted water at sunset;
Three buds looking
Like small owls on a branch;
Underneath a park bench;
And, popping up out of the field,
For more surprises, please go to: Our World.
A perfect April evening …
A golden sunset
Where the heart is filled
With joy and wonder.

It’s still very cold in the mornings and evenings (below zero) —
But oh, what a joy it is
To see the light returning in shades of orange
For more delightful scenes, please visit: Skywatch.
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.
(Photos taken in February.)

I haven’t been walking down to the lake that often
As the path is treacherously icy;
But when we do make it down there, Ruby is Queen of all she can see.
Splashes of purple
Look like frozen ribbons
Declaring ‘It’s not spring yet.’
No matter how much we pine (get the pun?)
For warmer times, we just have to appreciate what we have.
