Shadow Shot Sunday!

Get out the magnifying glass, get into your best sleuthing clothes and start prowling your environment looking for those wonderful, but sometimes elusive shadows. This fun and challenging meme is hosted each week by Tracy over at Hey Harriet! Click on the link under the blog title and sign up to play!!
We've had a bit of sun with hopes of some more in the next few days! I'm not going to hold my breath though! And one week down, two to go until moving day!!
Hope you are all enjoying a wonderful weekend with lots of love and laughter and beauty!
There are always flowers for those who want to see them.

Very beautiful collage! Love the tulips!
Have a nice day*

Ralph said...

The sun is always welcome, even in minute rays. It is 43 in CT today, gray and cold. Yet even with the wind, the tiniest sun would improve your feeling. a little sun goes a long way. Yur shots get the most out of the sun!

Woody said...

Sun? What's that? We're expecting ~2" of rain this afternoon :-(

The tulips are my favorite, such a great color!!!

That old house gave me a lot of material! I have several more to come over the next few weeks. Thanks for visiting!!

Oh just look at them tulips, simply stunning, really puts ya in the mood huh...well the snow didn't last long, but boy is it windy and cold...it might as well be snowing since it's already so miserable out, but that's the norm for April in Iowa, so I won't complain to loudly(whatever)...love your headers, what a hoot!

Love your collage, but those flowers are my favourites. The tulips are magnificent.

Al said...

Wonderful collage, Sylvia, I especially love the flowers. I'm glad you're seeing the sun - we've finally had some moisture, so maybe our weather has swapped! I saw my first wildflowers of the season on a hike today, so I'll probably post them for My World Tuesday. I hope your weekend is going well.
