When you get up close,
Humble objects can transform.
Is it a sunflower perhaps with icy petals?
Or a frozen sun
Glowing next to the physical one?
Even when the object is itself —
A screw with ice crystals —
It still retains its humble beauty.
(I’ve still got some crazy deadlines to meet, so will only be posting once this week.)

It’s the tail end
Of the Christmas holidays;
Mainly grey and mild —
But we finally got some cold weather.
Decorate the wall and window of the
Little sauna house on the lake.
When the sun finally showed its face,
The view was gloriously peachy.

So far winter has mainly been gray and mild,
So we have to make the most of those glorious
Pink frosted dawns with ice on the lake
And furry friends on the jetty.
Wishing you all the much love and joy in this festive season!

And don’t forget Skywatch.
Before the leaves left the branches,
The sky put on a dramatic show
Of pink ribbons
Tied up with lilac and gold.
(Only posting once this week – still very busy!)
A lone tree
Guards the lake —
And its perfect reflection
Of upside down clouds.

I get a lot of comments about how colourful my world is. That’s because I focus on the bright and the colours.
But as you can imagine, we do get a lot of grey days.
Even then, there is beauty in the stillness of the grey;
And in the perfect upside world of reflections.
Bare birches paint abstract pictures in the water;
And the pop of colourful buoys make them look like
(The grey almost adds a 3D feeling to the scenes, don’t you think?)
For more pops of colour, please visit: Our World.
Sun-kissed skies aren’t just about
Warm beaches and a hot blazing sun.
They are also about
The way the November sun paints
The tree tops with gold and pink.

We had a lovely snowfall, which has now all melted away unfortunately,
But I made it down to the lake to enjoy the view before the snow disappeared.
This is our sunset at 14.45!
Lilac veils of drama
And the trees seemed to tickle
The purple bellies of the clouds.
For more drama, please visit: Skywatch.
What is more delicious than the bright flames of autumn
And the zen of a heron gliding over the water
Before flying off into eternity?

It’s a frosty dawn,
And the moon reflects in the still waters of the lake
Like a penny dipped in silver.
The golden trees are a tapestry of light.
Later on, we get to the little beach by the sauna house:
The moon is gone,
But not the beauty of a calm, early morning with frost.
