Shadow Shot Sunday aka our Saturday actually ?

This morning I was able to "sneak" out into the back garden for a few minutes and I was SO happy to commune with my garden .. I have missed it so much with being taken out of action by naughty back and knee, conspiring against me for just working too hard ?
I loved the way this fence topper looks like a stairway .. so how could I resist asking the question .. would you be walking up the stairs or down ? wink wink
Make sure to visit Tracy 's blog Hey Harriet the master shadow snapper of us all ;-)
And .. yes .. even though we say "Sunday" .. we in the Great White North are still on Saturday .. I haven't lost" it "yet ?

Dear Joy,
a very unique shadow here. I'd like to have a seat under it and read a book.


P.s While writing this comment, got yours on my blog. Honestly, I'm bad at flower names. That moon flower was at my friend neighbor's garden. But the rose is in ours. :)

Thank you.

My Shadow Shots, have a lovely weekend!

Love your stairway.
I have a rocker I go sit in when it all gets too much in the garden. That way I can just sit and soak in the garden.

Lisa at Greenbow said...

Nice shot. I hope you are feeling better.

Sunita Mohan said...

I love that photo, Joy! It does make one look around for the stairs.
So sorry to hear about your back and knee problems but I'm so glad that you're well enough now to be able to slip out into the garden once more.

What a great shot!
Hope you're feeling better soon! Sounds like it's been a real pain.

Linda aka Crafty Gardener said...

Great shadow photo, I'll think I'll walk down the stairs into your garden :)

Rebecca @ In The Garden said...

Hello there Dani girl !
Thank you : ) yes it does look inviting eh ? LOL .. I feel in love with those shots of the Moon Flower. You did a wonderful job girl and that rose .. the poem "A red red rose .." keeps popping up in my brain when I see your rose !

Thank you chubskulit ! you too : )

Cat girl that sounds lovely : ) When you can sit some where comfortably and just soak in all of that life in the garden .. it fills your soul up doesn't it ? : )

Thanks Lisa girl .. I am trying so hard to get better it might be working in reverse ? LOL

Sunita girl thank you so much : )
Slipping out for a "garden moment" truly helps me .. even though I can see a million jobs that should be done ? LOL .. but even that little mission set me back and I am at square one again .. jeez ! haha

Hello there Aerie-el girl ! and thank you so much : )

Linda girl you can walk down those stairs any time you like : )Thanks!

Hello Rebecca girl and it was a strange moment when I saw that shadow .. it seemed perfect ? LOL Thank you girl : )

What a beautiful well managed garden, mine is a shambles with all the rains we've had on all of my days off...but there's always next year...right!

Sweet Repose : ) thank you so much ! but .. since I have been out of commission with my injury my garden is CHAOS !! .. and now we are having those rains but I am so grateful because it means the garden can drink well to keep it self going until I can get to it ? .. I'm sure your garden is full of eye candy too : )

Thank you EG Wow : ) it struck me right away how it could be a staircase leading any where ? ;-)

anka thank you so much ! .. I'm not as timid now about switching headers and it is a lot of fun : )
That SSS was a pleasant surprise to me too : ) thanks !

Do hope all is well...get better kiddo.

Patsi girl .. it was the bench with bags of pea gravel and river stone that did my disc in and then the knee .. honestly I thought I was careful not to hurt myself but the body disagreed STRONGLY ??
Hey .. so Sooky has no blood type and where was she with all of the party girls drinking light in glasses and will Eric make it past that mean king vampire ?? so many questions !!!
