Still winter

We’re having a lovely winter this spring,

But the dogs don’t mind.


With the return of the light,

The colour is coming back —


Sometimes gradually,

And sometimes in a bright flash of pink.


Only posting once this week due to work.

For more feel-good moments, please visit: Our World and at the end of the week, Skywatch.

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!)


For more great presents, please go to: Our World and (on Friday) Skywatch.

Double moon sky

It’s a frosty dawn,

And the moon reflects in the still waters of the lake


Like a penny dipped in silver.

The golden trees are a tapestry of light.


Later on, we get to the little beach by the sauna house:

The moon is gone,

But not the beauty of a calm, early morning with frost.

How to photobomb successfully

Get your camera and two dogs

And walk down to the lake.

Admire the sunset with boats.


Turn away for a few seconds,

Allowing your furry friends to get into the photo.

Then click to get a sweet photobomb.

Sunset silhouettes

When you have dogs, there is always the chance

That they will photobomb your shots.


But I think they just add

To the spectacular sunset, don’t you?

Trumpeting light

Is that an angel —

Or an elephant —

Trumpeting across the horizon at sunset?


(In other news, WordPress informs me

That I’ve been blogging for nine years!

Thank you for sticking with me all these years.)

Fire in the sky

The blazing sunset

Sets the world on fire


And paints the sky

In the colours of fire and passion.

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.

Spring honey

It was a blustery, spring evening —

But the light was delicious.


Ruby jumped up on her favourite high rock

As the honey’d rays of the sun glowed.


She was happy to look over her kingdom

Bathed in golden light.

(Simmie was busy running around in circles of joy.)

As the spring snow falls prettily outside the window,

My thoughts fly away like a bird:

I’m summer dreaming.
