I love the sun shining through the shell!

Ralph said...

Your cactus is ready to bloom - then the flowers will be brighter than the shadows...the translucent conch (or some other mollusk) shell is art all by itself. Your shadowy home is so inviting!

Joan said...

Both quotes are lovely!!
Your cactus is so pretty.

Tracy said...

Sylvia the shell is stunning; who would have ever thought the sunlight would show through that brilliant! Great quotes...

Jo said...

I just love the two shadow shots, Sylvia but your header takes the cake today! It's brilliant! Thanks for your continued visits to my blog while I was "offline" due to bad Internet Connections. I'm back online again and visiting, commenting, posting daily and taking part in memes again. Whoohoo. Have a great day. Jo

Genie said...

Happy Sunday, my friend. It is raining here so no shadows today, but your post has some beautiful ones. I always get excited when the they are colorful like these. That first shot is especially eye catching. There is something really dreamy about it. I think we have the same table and chairs...we have 4 stairs with the green backs and the round table which can be enlarged to make it an oval. genie

Leovi said...

Wonderful shadows of the conch is delicious. Greetings.

chubskulit said...

Come see the Flag in the Wood shadow. Have a blessed Sunday!
