my photos


It's been a sunshiny and shadowy kind of morning in my garden.

I can only think of one benefit of inheriting 1970's style concrete slabs, and that is the great shadows that cast upon them in sunlight.

Achillea seadhead above.

After upturning and brushing out the wooden planters in readiness for the new season ahead, this poor Housespider's life has now literally been turned upside-down.

I do hope it doesn't try to seek refuge indoors!

A white feather blows gently along in the breeze, but manages to sit still just for a second, long enough for me to take a snap.

A shadow of Ornamental Sedge in high contrast.

Hello Louise
I bet you are all happy to have enough sunshine to make shadows
At first glance when I started to scroll down I thought the first photo was of a hedgehog lol
Take care

Very effective and artistic shots, Louise. I'm not partial to spiders, but they do have their place in the world, especially in the shadows! Let's hope the sun keeps shining! I love how the feather plumed the rock :)

Lovely shadows. My friend Elizabeth at The World Examining Works blog enjoys posting shadows too. Look her up. Cheers for Spring, and I love seeing spiders outside or in the house. They are good to have around.

Love the shadows cast by these objects, but I must say that concrete slab looks like it could really scratch up knees!
