Shadow Shot Time

I bought this garden art years ago and I still love it to bits, if not more as the years have gone by. Caught in the morning sun, at just the right time, it has wonderful shadows from the Bittersweet vine .. and so this is my Shadow Shot du jour !

Tracy over at Hey Harriet will have a gallery full of fantastic pictures taken by my fellow Shadow Shooters so have a peek and see how many interesting ways there are to capture those shadows at work !

I love it! And what terrific shadow shots for the day! Looks like it was a good investment! Hope your weekend is going well!

The packing is great, the plant arriving intact and ready to prep for the garden planting - soon, we trust :)

The care in packing is sure to be exceeded in the care and love when planting by the Canadian gardener. You are excited, and rightly so - yours is a garden that reflects the gardener's good taste!

Your shadow shot du jour is delightful. The shadow of the vine is so nice on your garden art. Lovely photos!

That oval turns that shadow into something quite interesting. The first shot makes it look like it is a huge magnifying glass or tinted glass window.Then the shadows playing over it, I stared at it for a while. I like it. I bet you are glad to be gardening again as it has been a long winter. Hope all is well.
