Light…

Today’s picture was taken last October when we were in Spain.

This  light was above the patio outside the wee cottage we were renting in Andalusia. We sat out there every night, enjoying the peace, the food and (yes) the wine – all just a memory on this cold March morning. (Note the husband, planning the next day’s activities by the light of his Kindle – yes the wifi reached the patio 😎).

Stepping out…

A wee bit of a cheat today – this picture was taken last Saturday as my husband was stepping out at the edge of Loch Tay. 

The clouds were gathering and his wee walk was about to be cut short. The rest of us were watching from the comfort of the lodge!!

Poppies

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.
