Blog buddies and Leaf Shadows

I’m back on line, just in time to post a leaf shadow shot for Shadow Shot Sunday.  My dear husband managed to get the modem hooked up today so my life can return to normal.  I had a lovely birthday learning how to use a mat cutter to make mats for the water colour paintings I did in Mexico.  My stepson Ben helped me and we are going to build white wood frames for them too. 

Another sweet surprise on my birthday was a special post from my blogging buddy, Angry Parsnip.  She sent me a birthday photo and some music via her blog, Two Little Square Black Dogs .  The world of blog friends just gets wider and wider.  It’s a special connection.  I loved getting bloggy birthday greetings also from Ches at Alt. Build Blog and from Kathleen at Easy for Me to Say.   

We actually had some sun today but I was too busy planting and raking to remember to take some shadow shots.  This image from my archive shows the shadow from the Akebia leaves on the back fence.  I like the way the shadow of string shows its wound-up effect.  I hope your weekend is productive and fun as well.


  1. That is a really great shadow :)
