Golden oldies

I’m off to England to visit the family this weekend.

So, I leave you with two of my favourite shots:

A sky full of rainbow clouds

Rainbow clouds

And a golden wonder —

My daughter and her best buddy, Oscar (now deceased).

Back next week!

Spring bubbles

Before summer got into full swing over here,

Simson and I went out one early, dewy morning

To enjoy the happy suns of daffodils;

Daffodils

Dewy bubbles

On purple baubles

Dewy bubbles

And the vibrant splash

Of sunny silken petal.

It was hard work for Simson to lie still

And watch me —

Just look at the concentration on his face!

Summer siesta

School’s out and the long, long summer holidays have started.

Hurray

The kids and I are kicking off the first week of summer

By going to a surf camp in Peniche, Portugal,

And learning something new: surfing.

Buddies

I’ve got Our World ready to go up next week

(Hope there are no problems!)

I won’t be around for about ten days or so

So won’t be commenting on your blogs.

Catch you later!

Skies of love

When the golden sun

Dazzles on the water

Jetty

And it’s still bright

At gone 9.30 in the evening —

Heart

Then the heart fills with

Wonder and love.

The magic of morning

Sometimes, early morning

Is a magical place —

Magic

Where it feels as if

Dreams can come true

Dreams

Right there on the edge

Of the first apricot blush of dawn.

Rock ‘n Roll Queen

Ruby’s previous owner trained her to jump up

On very tall rocks for treats. She seems to enjoy it.

On stone

Last week, the mornings were cold (minus temperatures)

But Ruby decided to break through the ice for a swim anyway.

She then scaled a tall rock

And decided to share a spring shower with me.

Once out of the water,

She started to steam in the cold air.

No matter how hard he tried,

Simson just wasn’t agile enough to jump onto the top of that tall tall rock!

Simson

In the meantime, Ruby remained at the top,

Enjoying the sunshine in majestic solitude.

Blue beauty

Early morning copy

Today, I woke up to minus temperatures

A frosted blue sky,

And two furry posers down by the lake.

Pose

At last – a glorious dawn

Singing its golden promises

Of melting ice and beauty.

Sunburst

The great big

Hallelujah of the sun

Sunburst 1

Bursting out into song

Over rooftops and trees

Gives me energy.

Sunburst 2

Even the melody of the setting sun

In the city a couple of weeks ago

Sang a beautiful tune.

Heart’s delight

When the broken yolk of the sun

Splashed over the ice,

I knew a wonderful sky was coming.

(I snapped Ruby with my mobile phone.)

Ruby

I rushed home to get my ‘big’ camera

Pink

And was just in time

To see the sky

Romancing the snow.

Blushing dawn

The blushing apricot tones

Of dawn light up the sky,

Hoar frost dawn

And bring a sparkle

To the trees wearing

Their winter dress of hoar frost.

Hoar frost

Then the dawn mellows

Into a melody of lilac and pink

Over the old church across the frozen lake.

Who says cold isn’t beautiful?
