Going back

By the time you read this, I’ll be visiting my mum in England (Sussex).

Hopefully, the rain will have cleared

And the trees will be out in full bloom.

We’re going on holiday

To Eastbourne, a town on the south coast,

So I hope to relax, spend quality time with my mum

And – of course, get some good views of the sea!

(All photos from previous trips back ‘home’.)

I won’t be visiting any of you this week, but a big thank you for popping by.

Spring surprises

You never know what surprises spring might reveal:

A floating bench on purple-tinted water at sunset;

Benched.jpg

Three buds looking

Like small owls on a branch;

Pussywillow.jpg

Raindrops glittering

Underneath a park bench;

And, popping up out of the field,

Camouflaged deer!

Golden wonder

A perfect April evening …

A golden sunset

Where the heart is filled

With joy and wonder.

The colours of spring

Spring has burst forth

In an outburst of molten gold;

Colours.jpg

The ice melts

In shades of blue;

Ruby.jpg

And petals offer up

Bouquets of purple.

Oh, how I love the colours of spring!

Spring: Viking-style

Afternoon sunset

Finds us enjoying the cold.

Dogs.jpg

The setting sun

Brings lilac with it

And tones of

Frozen gold.

Romancing the city

Early morning dawn:

I take out my mobile phone as I sit in a car and capture

The romance of the sky over Stockholm.

(I like the way the car window frames the cityscape.)

On the way home from work,

Lilac and pink clouds

Bid the sun farewell at sunset.

Once in a blue moon

I wasn’t expecting to see the blue moon

At about half-past three in the afternoon.

Branches.jpg

But there it was – gracing the winter sunset;

Rising.jpg

Rising like a balloon

And being released into the sky by the trees.

Drama in the skies

We had a lovely snowfall, which has now all melted away unfortunately,

But I made it down to the lake to enjoy the view before the snow disappeared.

This is our sunset at 14.45!

Clouds created

Lilac veils of drama

And the trees seemed to tickle

The purple bellies of the clouds.

Postcards from England

I had a great visit with my mum in England.

The day of my arrival saw the tail end of Hurricane Ophelia,

Which created a lovely background for sheep silhouettes.

The next day was warm and misty.

On our walk, we saw a strange, n-ewe species:

The two-headed sheep!

(Sorry about the baa-d pun.)

Our destination was this old, Saxon church

Dating back to the late 11th century.

My father is buried in this beautiful (and slightly isolated) location.

I’m busy this week with work so will only be posting once.

Golden moments

I’m away all week – off to England

To visit my mum.

Oldhouse.jpg

Time to enjoy family, old houses

And my mum’s garden —

Hibiscus.jpg

And, of course, my favourite walk

Up on the Sussex Downs.

(I wont’ be around to visit you this week.)
