Your post made me wonder where we would be without shadows...shadows help define things, etch them into our consciousness, give them substance, make them 3-dimensional.

My fave is #3...so warm and inviting!

JM said...

What gorgeous Christmas Cactus! You surely have a green thumb, Sylvia.

Is this a Fuscia Sylvia, it's a wonderful size. Gorgeous colourful shadows once more.

I am flabbergasted by the hugeness of your Christmas Cactus Sylvia. And may I add that the 'new for me header' is fantastic.

When the Christmas cactus bear flowers, I know that Jesus birth is on the way.

I do love your shots today.

Million thanks for dropping by and the uplifting words makes the pain lessens.

TY for being there even just in words.

Have a blessed day, Maam S...

Hugs,

I love you Christmas cactus.. mine never re-bloomed so I caned it.
I should have sent to Sylvia's 'green thumb' rehab!
Enjoy your weekend :0)

The header reminds me of Sinatra singing Come fly with me, let's fly away. Even if it is on the ground...The stemware makes for a delicate shadow, simple and elegant. The other glassare in its rainbow of colors is beautiful in shadowy style!

Paula Scott said...

I love shadows. They bring such depth to a picture and your quotes bring so much thought to our lives!

I love your cactus, mine did not have much bloom this year.

Hope you'd come and see when you get a chance.

Norma Ruttan said...

lovely combo of color and shadows!

blogitse said...

'Happiness depends upon ourselves' - so true but why do we search it from other people, shopping, gaming etc.
Have a good week Sylvia!

Eden said...

Beautiful shadows. Love all of them

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
