The view from our balcony in Dubrovnik, Croatia,
We could see the Old Town and
Its massive walls (dating back to the 16th century),
As well as the Island of Lokrum
And a peaceful pink sunset over the bay.

I haven’t had time to upload and go through my holiday photos yet,
So thought I’d share what makes summer so special.
It can be a stunning swan sunset,
Or a bee pollinating a poppy.
It is the discovery
Of flowers wearing wigs,
And the pink fireworks
Of an onion flower.

I’m going away to Montenegro and Croatia with the kids for a week —
To see new horizons and sights.
In the meantime, I leave you with
A pretty, pink sunset down at the lake.
(I won’t be around to comment on your blogs for about ten days.
But don’t worry, Our World will be up and running as normal!)

The Shard is an iconic skyscraper in London:
95 stories high (306 metres tall), it’s made up of 11,000 glass panels,
And reflects the clouds. (It was very hot, and cloudy when I was there.)
While I was in London, I came across the Shard in unusual places –
Here it is glimpsed from an alleyway on the other side of the river.
On my last night, the sun finally burst through the cloud cover
Giving me a gorgeous view of the Thames and the Shard.

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.
Do check out: Our World.
You never know what surprises spring might reveal:
A floating bench on purple-tinted water at sunset;
Three buds looking
Like small owls on a branch;
Underneath a park bench;
And, popping up out of the field,
For more surprises, please go to: Our World.
A perfect April evening …
A golden sunset
Where the heart is filled
With joy and wonder.

Spring has burst forth
In an outburst of molten gold;
The ice melts
In shades of blue;
And petals offer up
Bouquets of purple.
Oh, how I love the colours of spring!
For more spring, please go to: Our World.
Finds us enjoying the cold.
The setting sun
Brings lilac with it
And tones of

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.
