Pumpkin spice

The geese call out; they are leaving.

They look like musical notes stretched across the early evening sky.

Lilac tones

Turn into a dazzling orange sonata.

Paint me lilac

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.)

Colour me violet

Sometimes a sunset doesn’t put on

A fiery show as the sun goes down;

Dogs.jpg

All you have to do is take your best girl, some dogs

And wait for the lilac and violet tints to paint the sky.

Purple ribbons

The sun rises —

Presenting the new day as a gift

Tied up with purple ribbons.

(Dog not included… ;-))

Deep purple

One morning in late November,

Just as the ice was forming on the lake,

The houses on the far shore were lit up like a necklace of lights.

Dawn.jpg

One in particular was ablaze —

What a glorious view it must be from those windows!

The sun rose slowly

Turning the world into a tapestry of lilacs and pinks,

Stitched together with clouds.

Of lilac and gold

When the dawn is ablaze in lilac

And the rising sun paints the treetops gold…

The result is just breath-taking!

(I have a crazy busy week ahead of me

So won’t be around much.)

Lilac wonder

Autumn makes me rich

As it leaves its golden coins on the shore of the lake.

Pink sky.jpg

Misty pastel pinks

Blend with lilac clouds and autumn trees.

I stand in awe and drink in the wonder.

Into the lilac forever

It wouldn’t be summer

Without an excursion down to the lake

Balloon.jpg

And a hot air balloon

Floating away over lilac

And purple.

Flower power

We’ve had a lot of rain this summer —

And it’s been wonderful discovering the different flowers in the garden.

Tulip.jpg

Raindrops are beautiful kisses

On the petalled lips of tulips,

While bringing out the fragrance

Of the lilacs.

From me to you.)

The Twisted Pier

Oh, the things we do to get a photo!

While I was in New Jersey, I had some fabulous photo sessions with friends.

Twisted pier 1 copy.jpg

One was a sunset session in a (secret) location on the New Jersey shore

With a marvellous view of the Manhattan skyline and the Freedom Tower.

I may or may not have trespassed on some waste ground

Freedom Tower dusk copy.jpg

In order to capture the twisted pier

And the buildings glowing in the perfect lilac twilight.
