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!!

In spite of some chilly, rainy, windy days lately, we have mostly enjoyed more summery weather and I do love the colors and shadows I see around me. I used a larger pic today, you'll have to scroll over a bit, but hope you can see more of the pics in the collage! May you all enjoy a lovely weekend full of laughter and joy and beauty!

Your shadowy living room looks invitingly cool! I adore the zucchini people in your new header--what fun!


TALKING SHADOWS?

Imagine a shadow could talk
In whisper or rumble or squawk;
Just what would it say
To make you go, “Hey!
You’re just a chip off the old block!”?

Your Seattle captures in subject and shadow are great! We hear about the rainy cities on the Puget, but you make the damp lands look majestic under a blue sky. Mice captured as always!

Shadows are more atmospheric in a garden somehow! Also liked the 'red' shadow in the last picture...

Sometimes, dreams are all we have left and we just have to hang on to them and little by little we still see the wonders around us.

I love to see your plants thriving and your lovely views as well as your well spotted shadows.
