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;
And a special glow painted the landscape
With summer light.

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
And a golden wonder —
My daughter and her best buddy, Oscar (now deceased).
Back next week!

Before summer got into full swing over here,
Simson and I went out one early, dewy morning
To enjoy the happy suns of daffodils;
On purple baubles
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!

School’s out and the long, long summer holidays have started.
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.
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!
When the golden sun
Dazzles on the water
And it’s still bright
At gone 9.30 in the evening —
Then the heart fills with
Wonder and love.

Sometimes, early morning
Is a magical place —
Where it feels as if
Dreams can come true
Right there on the edge
Of the first apricot blush of dawn.

Ruby’s previous owner trained her to jump up
On very tall rocks for treats. She seems to enjoy it.
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!
In the meantime, Ruby remained at the top,
Enjoying the sunshine in majestic solitude.

Today, I woke up to minus temperatures
A frosted blue sky,
And two furry posers down by the lake.
At last – a glorious dawn
Singing its golden promises
Of melting ice and beauty.
