Pink ribbons

Before the leaves left the branches,

The sky put on a dramatic show


Of pink ribbons

Tied up with lilac and gold.

(Only posting once this week – still very busy!)

Hanging on to autumn

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.

Autumn scenes

It’s early autumn here …

And the fields are full of wildflowers still —


And a dog or two.

(A wolf was spotted here a couple of weeks ago too, but it’s long gone.)


There’s nothing more wonderful

Than running free in autumn colours.

All that glitters is not gold

Although we often judge people, countries, cities

On outward appearances, there is far more to us

Than meets the eye.


Despite current political rhetoric and media

That would have us believe we are each other’s enemies,


I truly believe that there is far more that unites us as humans.

We just need to make sure we remember that.

So, here’s to no more hate and a lot more love!

(New York looks good from the New Jersey side at sunset!)

Golden joy

It’s almost impossible to photograph a summer sunset

As the sun goes down so very late.


Even at 9.30 or 10 in the evening,

The sun is blazing golden and serene.


The evening light is liquid honey —


And when Simmie shakes after his swim,

He creates golden fireworks of water.


For more joy, please visit: Our World.

And Skywatch.


Everything’s better with a bit of nature’s glitter —

Whether it’s ducks at sunset;


The sizzle of the

Golden hour;


Or the silken ripples

On the lake as the sun goes down.

Winter snapshots

Winter has many forms of beauty —

Sometimes it’s clear ice and cloudy skies,


Or a burst of pink dawn;


At other times, it’s golden fog


Or a honey glow over cottage and snow.


All photos taken with my mobile phone, so please excuse the quality.

I’m away for work this week, so may not have time

To get around to your blogs.

I’m linking up to: Our World and Skywatch. Please pop over there for a visit!

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.)

In the pink

As the sun was rising in gorgeous pink tones,

The bare trees of November and the frosted ground

Cast beautiful reflections on the lake.



There is so much beauty

In the minimalism of a buoy stuck in ice


And a float to keep us anchored

In case we fly away on the dreaminess of the

Stunning pink dawn.

Golden threads

Wonderful things happen when the sun

Breaks through in a ball of golden glow.

The sunshine hitting cold ground

Creates an angel of light

As fog rises to meet the dawn.

Cobwebs strung across the fields

Are delicate, golden threads


And feathery fluff from wild flowers

Rests among friends in a field

Of golden bokeh.

(By the way, it started to snow here on November 1st!)
