Tutus in the sky

Call the clouds what you will:

Lilac tutus,

Boat in pink.jpg

Marshmallow fluff

Or pink candy floss.

They are still just as beautiful.

Swan Lake — with cloud tutus

A misty dawn

In lilac and blue;

Swan lake

A swan floating

Serenely through the mist;

Swan in clouds

As dawn ends, the fog disperses

In clouds made of pink tutus.

Dawn’s misty ribbons

Isn’t it amazing how quickly Nature can change?

One minute trailing soft ribbons of pink

Misty ribbons

And the next surprising the eye

With blueberry swirls and orange pop.

The sentinel

A strange pink glow

Beckoned me out into the storm.


There on the rickety jetty,

Was a lone goose

Staring out into the sunset.


It was a moment full of poignancy and beauty.

Just him and me

And the whisper of autumn.

The invitation

Wide skies of

Red and purple

Wide skies

Invite us to drink

In the wonder and beauty of nature —

Sunset lake

And, of course, if you’re a dog,

To take a dip in

Rose-tinted water.

Amazonian beauty

The botanical gardens in Stockholm

Have a round greenhouse, and every year,

If you’re lucky – you can see the world’s largest water lily,

Victoria Amazonica, in bloom.

Upside down

The large domed roof of the greenhouse

Filters the light so that the room

Is filled with a magical green.

Magical green

Some of the lilies were

Just peeking out of their pods


While others had already unfurled

Into petalled perfection.

Orange beauty

There’s nothing better

Than strolling along the beach

Orange sun 1

And drinking in the heady beauty

Of a fierce orange sunset,

Sun setting 2

While the pink balloon of the disappearing sun

Turns waves into silk.

Summer love

One evening in the early summer

There was a special light in the air.

Midges danced around Ruby like small diamonds;


Brother and sister enjoyed

Some quiet moments of beauty while Simson charged in for a dip;

Sibling love copy

And a special glow painted the landscape

With summer light.

Summer rain

It’s been one of the wettest summers on record

Here in Sweden.


The flowers aren’t complaining.

Wild rose

In fact, they seem to unfurl

To drink in the rain

Iris copy

While unopened buds

Are happy just to be.

My parents need some help this week, so I’m away in England again. I might not be able to visit you or reply to your comments. But please know they are much appreciated.

Bursting into

Golden flowers.
