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.

She sells sea shells…

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.

Spreading the light

Today’s photo is an image of candle in a mirror box taken by Joel Motylinsky (on Flickr).

There are two ways of spreading light, to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it (Edith Wharton)
