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

The snow is melting and the light is changing —
But who says that winter is without its own bright light?
When it is cold with hoar frost
Lying thick on the branches
And, with the sun shining,
The cold can be just as dazzling.

The snow is gradually melting away —
But only last week, it lay thick in the fields
Below a blue canopy of silk.

Fog – a majestic backdrop
For a red dog (or two);
Fog – veiling landscape
Fog – settling on the ground
Like a silken scarf.

Our winter snow has washed away in the rain,
So I’m still hanging on to autumn.
(Pictures taken a couple of weeks ago.)
I can’t get enough of the bright reflections,
The emerald of the evergreens
Blending with the fiery colours of the birch trees.
The blueberry forests are green once again,
But I spy a furry friend in her autumn coat.

We had a lovely snowfall, which has now all melted away unfortunately,
But I made it down to the lake to enjoy the view before the snow disappeared.
This is our sunset at 14.45!
Lilac veils of drama
And the trees seemed to tickle
The purple bellies of the clouds.

Autumn is a golden
Curtain of leaves;
It’s the russet fur
Of autumn-coloured dogs;
And the surprise of deer
Blending in with the trees.

I love it when the sun sets
In dramatic purple hues
Or in soft, lilac tones.
(As you can see, the little sauna house
Is now docked next to the jetty
Leaving the beach and its views free again.)

I love the way snow
Softens the contours of nature:
Into works of art
And turning leaves
Into elegant pictures.

There is a narrow, hidden path that comes out
Next to a gorgeous lakeside house.
As you emerge from the path,
You might find yourself bathed in honeyed light on a clear winter’s day.
The light pours golden and warm
Over the hibernating bees — reminding us that
There are sweet things just around the corner.
