Shadow Shot Sunday


Our Australian friend, Tracy, is our host for Shadow Shot Sunday, and you will find lots of great shadow shots at her site. Stop by and see for yourself.


This week my daughter, Kitty, has sent me photos of her wonderful garden in California. I think they are beautiful. Hope you enjoy them.

The first is of shadows of lavender on her drive.



And I have always loved California poppies.

Marvelous shadow shots, Bobbie! I love the lavender -- Adam has just planted it all around our house, can't wait for them to get big and fortunately they do grow fast. And the poppies are delightful! Love the rich color! Have a wonderful weekend!

The shadows on the sidewalk are nice - concrete seems so gray and wanting for artistic shadows! The pistils on each plant are small, but leave such mighty shadows. What a garden!

Your photos are all beautiful, but the second one, with the poppies, is breathtaking.
Come and join Macro Flowers Saturday on my macro flowers blog and share this beauty with us, if you wish.

Great shadows, Californian poppies are so delicate. We grow them here in New Zealand, they love our Summer climate.

Hey Harriet said...

I did indeed enjoy them! Kitty sure has a lovely garden. Such sweet decorative shadows on those glorious poppies! Have a great week Bobbie :)
