Reflection, Shadow and Primrose

30 Apr

Don’s blog, read early this morning, touched a chord and even before my breakfast I had spotted three beautiful things!

1  The sun catching a beautiful piece of green glass that was my Granny’s and throwing light onto the window edge.

2   Those of you who know my copper Monkey Planter, made by Jeremy Beswick, will recognise this shadow thrown by the early morning sunshine.

3   A fallen Primrose with its soft furry stem lies on the stone wall.



P.S. I love the serendipity of the colour tones that sometimes happen in my posts. It happened yesterday and it has again today. There is no artifice in this! It truly is serendipty – I don’t even notice it until I look at the preview and then it pleases me – another beautiful thing!

    Your blog reminds me of the gratitude journal I kept a few years back, where I would write three things a day that I was thankful for. Btw, Diana sent me!

    So you really think it is a reflection, huh. I was thinking paranormal all the way. Or your very own northern lights. Either or, glad you boogied to get your camera.

    Second photo, cheeky shadow. And I know cheeky when I see it.

    Nothing bashful about your primrose either.

    p.s. …………your well toned

    The sun catching that glass and the light being thrown on the window edge is magnificent. Really beautiful.

    Thank you for the mention and the link Sally – appreciate it.

    I love “shiny” of any kind and my favorite is when dawn or dusk light shines through or on things. Keep showing us your shinies!
