Love this picture by George Crawford, taken on the road between West Kilbride and Ardrossan last week.
Bright splash of colour in what has been a fairly grey and overcast summer so far on the west Coast! (It was glorious today though).
Swaying gently in the breeze
poppies galore blooming with ease
raising their heads up to the sky
smiling widely certainly not shy
Fragile petals warm in the sun
flames of scarlet having fun
black eyes winking in hazy sunlight
dancing merrily for your delight
So when you pass this field of fire
take the time to stop and admire
silken petals with a waxy sheen
against a background of olive green.
Another great picture of Ailsa Craig by Brian Johnstone. Loving his pictures.
“Finding Seashells” (Author Unknown)
Come walk with me
Along the sea
Where dusk sits on the land
And search with me
For shells are free,
And treasures hide in sand.
Today’s photo is an image of candle in a mirror box taken by Joel Motylinsky (on Flickr).

Today, another amazing picture by Brian Johnstone – skimming stones all the way to Ailsa Craig.

Lovely picture by Brian Johnstone, taken on Prestwick Beach. Wonderful warm summer colours, pity the weather is mainly shades of grey!

“The tallest oak in the forest was once just a little nut that held its ground”
Photo is children playing on an oak tree in Louisiana from National Geographic photographs.
The quote resonated with me today though 😄
My eldest daughter has moved back home, bringing with her chaos and clutter and boxes!
Please note that the Mother’s Day orchid is (amazingly) still alive.
