Winter seems to be waning —
I say ‘seems’ as this is Sweden and it can snow even in June!
But I don’t think we will see scenes like this one again this winter:
With thick snow on the iced over lake.
It’s cold in the mornings,
So, if we are lucky,
We can still enjoy rim-frosted green lanterns

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.

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.

The bare bones of autumn
With rich splashes of colour are delightful.
The fiery lanterns of leaves
Hang upside down in still waters.
And all that gold from the autumn sun
Is reflected back on furry coat and field.

The geese call out; they are leaving.
They look like musical notes stretched across the early evening sky.
Turn into a dazzling orange sonata.
For more musical skies, please go to: Skywatch.
If autumn could be summed up in a picture, it would be this one:
Golden leaves, the sauna house and Ruby posing by the water.
Simmie would rather explore
And swim than pose.
A week later, even more leaves have fallen off the trees,
Like whispers, and I see another portrait of the sauna house
Peeking out from behind the leaves.
For more portraits, please go to: Our World.
Sometimes the rising sun (arriving later and later every day)
Sets the trees aflame;
As for the clouds,
They give double joy:
Once in the sky and once in water reflected.

My daughter turned 16
At the beginning of August
And I organized all kinds of surprises.
We finished the day
With a surprise swim at sunset.
The sky turned from orange to purple:
A perfect ending to a perfect day.
