Photo challenges - Flowers and Shadows


This afternoon as I wandered the garden (after my huge yard sale of teacher stuff!), I discovered the bright sun cast shadows on many of the flowers. Still lovely, but with a shadow.






Couldn't resisr the shadows - like spiders!



Be sure to check here for shadows from around the world.

thank you for the striking captures of lovely flowers, I'd forgotten how much I like morning glories, makes me feel nostalgic!

I taught for 33 years. Welcome to my world of retirement.
