Shadow Shot Sunday

A bright, beautiful day - quite a change from this past week of rain, cold and wind! Blue skies, bright sun and signs of new life everywhere!

Shadows abounded in the gardens as I checked for new plants.

And wouldn't you know- dandelions are already out!

Our robin continues to nest - she does not appreciate it when I come out onto the porch. She will leave her nest and scold me from the fence!

Be sure to check out the great shadow chasers at Hey Harriet - that super fun meme created by Tracy!

Lovely crisp shadows. Your robin is quite different to ours, which haa a red breast.

The spring growth arrives and even if small - a new leaf sprouting means we can enjoy warmer days full of a northerly sun. The dandelion has an ugly root, but the yellow flower looks like the sun on a stem. Nice captures, perhaps the bird is a prod new parent. Spring warms os all over!

You DO have a shadowy garden!


A seeker of shadows, they say,
Will keep her eyes peeled night and day
For resident shades
That haunt the dark glades
And never come outside to play.

Those plant shadows do look a little like barbed wire, as Catherine mentioned. I don't think I'd have thought of that!
Uh-oh, I just spotted a cloud in our otherwise blue sky. I hope tonight's forecast rain/snow isn't coming already.
