beach day –
the dogs’ noses
covered in sand
the lighthouse waits until dark
to spin her green halo

The double rainbows were a wonderful sight and I captured them in the haiku as I couldn’t fit them in the frame with the lens I had with me.

between future and past
a tranquil sea
where new forests grow

It has been joy to return to this area that means so much to us and see the changing colours.

I have posted about conservation projects on this blog before and in August of this year we decided to get more actively involved and plant a grove with Trees for Life.

The Tranature Grove‘s trees are carefully planted in protected sites in the Scottish Highlands where they will create homes for wildlife and forests for the future.

You are more than welcome to add trees to the Tranature Grove to celebrate a milestone or special occasion or in someone’s memory. You may want to start your own grove here in the Highlands or support a conservation project near where you live.

Together we can all do our bit.

Wishing you all a happy Thursday and a peaceful rest of the week,

with love from Eivor, Pearl and Xenia xxx
