Early summer is
A symphony of green and wildlife:
The green is
Sometimes luminous and startling,
Sometimes like dewy
And sometimes abstract paintings
In the rain.

A walk down by a nearby lake at sunset
Revealed swirls of pink in the sky.
The light gently landed on the water
Giving it a gorgeous pink hue.
Later on, a small, silver
Sliver of a moon sailed into the sky
Bringing peace at the end of the day.

I think there is much to be said
For flowers (and people) that have blossomed out, lived life
And then begin to wilt gracefully.
There is elegance in silken petals
(And lined faces).
Drooping flowers — and ageing people for that matter —
Have their own beauty and wisdom.

It was one of those glorious mornings
Where a blue dawn lay waiting behind the mist;
Ducks floating on a lake of velvet
Lifted the spirits;
And the whole world breathed
In and out –
Speaking of blue serenity.

One of the highlights of spring is enjoying the sakura
Or Japanese cherry blossoms in the centre of Stockholm.
The sakura speak to us of
What is possible
And of petalled beauty
That lasts only a short time,
Blooming without holding back
And reminding us that life is like the sakura:
Fleeting, fragile, fabulous.

I was in Sussex, England, over Easter —
And one of my favourite activities is walking on the Downs.
There’s nothing like emerald fields
Glowing beneath a sky of sapphire,
With animals enjoying
The background of big, rolling clouds.

Sometimes it’s worth setting the alarm for 4.30 in the morning
In order to capture the magical, golden sunburst
Of sunrise over the Manhattan skyline.
(Photos taken in Hoboken Park, New Jersey, last week.
This week, it’s back to snow in Sweden.)

A slightly different view of skies this week:
When the sun hits the laundry room windows
Rainbows explode in vibrant colours
And almost make me want to do the laundry!
(I’m off to Brussels for work so won’t be online that much —
See you in a week!)

It was a glorious winter day
With snow, sun and sparkles on the trees.
That made me smile.
A long walk with friends
— That’s what made Simmie smile.
After two hours of running around
And enjoying the scenery —
We were all tired and happy.
(That’s my Ruby on the right as you look at the photo and Simmie on the back left
With Jessie, Ruby’s puppy, standing in front of him.)

When I woke up this morning, it was very misty
With the sun struggling through foggy veils.
That reminded me of all the moments of joy
When we lived down by the lake
And I could step outside in my dressing gown
To enjoy the sky kissing the water.
