Ablaze

Isn’t it amazing

How the going down of the sun

Ablaze.jpg

Can be both so bright and blazing

And yet so dramatic and dark?

A golden oldie

A golden memory from a few years ago:

My daughter and our dear Oscar (no longer with us)

Enjoying a spectacular sunset together.

Silk

Some sunsets take

My breath away

When the sun kisses the lake

In ribbons of silk.

Postcards from August

Cone you feel it?

Summer is coming to a beautiful end.

Golden days

End in golden hays (and a dog purveying his kingdom).

The bees make even

The humble onion flower bee-utiful.

Bee-autiful.jpg

Our walk ends with

A dewy heart.

Summer is leaf-ing – and so are my bad puns!

Fire in the sky

The sun goes down —

Not quietly

Firedog.jpg

But in a fierce splash of red.

A bird floats across the sky.

Fire can also be peace.

Sun dogs

Ruby is getting her mojo back

And enjoying our lake sunsets again.

Under supervision, she jumps up

On rocks for treats.

And, of course, both dogs

Are used to our photo sessions at sunset.

Purple haze

After the rain —

A sky full of wonder.

Puddles of lilac

And a purple haze in the sky.

Orange love

One day, a golden light burst onto the scene.

Ruby kindly posed (along with a strange shadow creature).

The sky drew lines and swirls

Against an orange background

As the dashing duo posed in the hope of a treat.

Please note: I’m only posting once this week due to work (am away filming) and taking care of Ruby. She had a uterus infection and had to have an emergency operation to remove her uterus and ovaries. The operation was a success, but she needs looking after.

For more dashing stories, please check out: Our World. (I’m the host!)

And later on in the week, visit: Skywatch.

 


Sunset love

A stunning purple sunset —

And puppy kisses:

What could be better?

Wonder

After three months of drought, forest fires and extreme heat,

The weather has finally turned cool and rainy.

It sure looks good!
