Life is busy with deadlines, work
And enjoying the beauty of summer,
So I won’t be able to visit your blogs this week.
Green was the silence, wet was the light,
the month of June trembled like a butterfly….

There’s nothing better
Than strolling along the beach
And drinking in the heady beauty
Of a fierce orange sunset,
While the pink balloon of the disappearing sun
Turns waves into silk.
All photos taken while on holiday in Baleal, Portugal, this summer.

It’s been one of the wettest summers on record
Here in Sweden.
The flowers aren’t complaining.
In fact, they seem to unfurl
To drink in the rain
While unopened buds
Are happy just to be.
My parents need some help this week, so I’m away in England again. I might not be able to visit you or reply to your comments. But please know they are much appreciated.

School’s out and the long, long summer holidays have started.
The kids and I are kicking off the first week of summer
By going to a surf camp in Peniche, Portugal,
And learning something new: surfing.
I’ve got Our World ready to go up next week
(Hope there are no problems!)
I won’t be around for about ten days or so
So won’t be commenting on your blogs.
Catch you later!
July was a time of long, long summer nights,
And strawberry swirls in the sky.
Pink gave way to
Ruby red —
As the sun sank into the lake
With a sizzling hot splash.

My ‘baby sis’ and I ended up on Brighton Pier one evening
While I was in England.
After a wonderful time with the kids at the amusement park,
We caught a spectacular sunset over the old West Pier.
As we headed back to the car with the lights twinkling,
My daughter burst out, “I wish we could make photos with our eyes.”
Her Aunty Kata (my sister) had a brilliant reply:
“We can. They are called memories.”
(I’m away at a summer cottage here in Sweden until the weekend, so may not be able to visit you. But I do APPRECIATE all your comments!)

When golden insects
Dance in the air,
And the setting sun
And a bucket on the jetty
Into objects of beauty,
Then the best thing to do
Is lean back
And try to catch the magic
With your wand (or fishing rod).
For more glitter, please visit: Skywatch.
On a carpet of burnished gold
Swims a swan
In the dancing light
Of a shimmering sunset.

Come hang with me for a bit on a gorgeous August day…
Let’s go down to the lake – I like to think of it as ‘my backyard’ —
And enjoy the scenery for a while;
Let’s drink in the perfect reflections
Of summer’s fluffy clouds.
As we walk past people’s gardens,
We might discover a bee-autiful surprise.
Then it’s time to dash inside and
Enjoy a summer shower with a butterfly for company.
When it clears up, we can release the butterfly
And our souls
As we sit on a bench to enjoy
A truly magnificent sunset.
