Shadow Shot Sunday !

Well here we are again .. I think I must be having a "Groundhog Day" month because it feels like I just accomplished one of these posts yesterday ?? .. just too many things happening week after week .. but it is even more important during these times when we are DIZZY ? .. to slow down and appreciate those beautiful shadows and I have to say I love this one because the flower was such a surprise .. a gift and so were the perfect shadows.
There are many more shadow gifts from wonderful shadow shooters for Tracy's meme over at Hey Harriet .. so make sure to make the time to visit while you take a moment for yourself.

This is a great shadow montage - the changes in lighting adds depth, character and a wonderful beauty. Lovely flowers!

Yes Linda ! Thank you girl !
You could have knocked me over with a feather (ok .. a BIG feather) when I saw the flower.. I had no idea they could flower like that !

Thank you N&P : ) I saw it just in time to capture the combo and I was very pleased to see a little flower on this vine !

Thank you Lynette : ) it did seem to have all the right elements for contrast and shadow . I was very lucky to catch it !

Hello GT and yes .. I agree with you one hundred percent .. this is all courtesy of nature and very much appreciated !

'SIMPLY' wonderful, a sweet garden surprise...love the header, is that a 'rattlesnake master' seed pod, looks like the wild indigo plants in my lil' prairie.

Hello Sweet Repose and thank you !
It is Blue False Indigo /Baptisia Australis .. and it is one of my first original garden plants .. it takes a while to establish but it is so worth it : )
I love the foliage .. the flowers and then these great rattle pods in black .. Halloweeny !! LOL
