Shadow Shot Sunday: Searching for Shadows


So far, February has been mostly cold and misty around here. Lots of gray days, not much sunshine. Shadows are hard to find. These are a couple of shots I took last month, during our brief spell of spring-like weather. Shadows on the steps leading up to our side yard....



And some winter garden shadows....



The weather "experts" tell us the week ahead should be warmer, with a bit more sun. I'm hoping they're right about that. Can't take many more of these dismal days. Thinking seriously about moving further SOUTH.

Happy Sunday, everyone! And have a lovely week.

Cloud Watching

We've had mostly sunny days this week, and no rain. Just the way I love it. The skies have been beautifully clear most of the time, but we have had a few impressive cloud displays...



And at least one really gorgeous sunset.




Now if we could just do something about all this cedar pollen making us cough and itch.... Guess I'm never satisfied.

This week I'm also linking up with Photo Friday, hosted by Pierced Wonderings:

Blue Monday: Mini Blues


Blue wallpaper, blue rug, a couple of bookcases full of books, and a comfy-looking chair. Just right for some cozy reading on a winter's day. I love this room.



And I also love that it's located in this absolutely charming (and also blue) miniature house....



... built by a friend who is an incredibly talented mini-house creator.

For the time being, Blue Monday is being hosted by Magical Mystery Teacher.
