BLUE SKY AND SHADOWS

Look at this blue sky, not one cloud in sight. This is what the weather is like today, here along the south coast of England, and breathing a sigh of relief can guess that maybe our long awaited summer has finally arrived.

The sunshine has been casting some really lovely shadows around the garden. What plants are these shadows being cast from? Just for fun leave me a comment with your guesses and in a few weeks or so I shall give you the answers.

Shadow number 1.



Shadow number 2.



Shadow number 3.

Hi Louise, I'm getting to leave work a little earlier and today decided to visit.

Beautiful sky! As for the shadows? My first thought for #1 was a daisy,
#2...? #3 purple cone flower?

Great pictures...enjoy the weather.

Threadspider said...

Gorgeous pictures and blue sky. It is all the more welcome for being a long time coming.

Naturegirl said...

Coneflower teasels and fern shadows in your garden today with the such a blue sky! I am envious of the blue sky because all we've had is grey, clouds, and rain..so much rain!
You have a wonderful blog here. Your photos spectacular! Love them! :)NG

Here's my guess: #1 lupin leaf
#2 fancy edged foxglove :)
#3 echinacea

Gina said...

make #3 blue sea holly - just saw it in your earlier post LOL Gx

LL said...

Daisy and fern? Although perhaps a daisy's petals are more closely spaced together....

I'll watch for the answers. That blue sky, I hope, is a harbinger of days to come....
