Shadow Shot Sunday

Strange lamp in the Phoenix in Denmark Hill. It is a lovely pub in the Victorian waiting room of the station.

Benches outside the Phoenix.

What happens to a yellow rubber hotwater bottle when it is left in the garden for three years.

It's Lily again! That cat gets everywhere. Here she is enjoying sitting on her log-it was my log-for doing woman of the woods type handywork in the garden but now it is Lily's!

This has come out the wrong way round-but it is still shell O'clock-or is it tile O' clock?

These are the bridesmaid dress hollyhocks from a few posts ago. I love these!

I am on holiday for a week now so will have blogging withdrawal no doubt! I look forward to seeing you all when I get back! Visit Heyharriet here for more shots (but not yet as I am early!)-I will visit when I am back next week!

Nice! Love the lamp, and the glass shadow at the edge of the table shadow in the second shot.

Also, I want a hot water duckie. Not all cracked, though.

So many wonderful shadows! Love the duck especially, and the shot of the sundial and flowers.

What a lovely garden - you even have ducks! We will be in London in a couple of weeks, so I hope you will turn on some really warm weather for us.

Sweet Repose said...

Your rubber ducky would fetch a good price in the states, funny what we hold valuable these days...it's all about the cracks!

storyteller said...

Fun series of shadows this weekend and like others, the duck made me laugh. Your flowers are lovely indeed. I shared shadows at Small Reflections this week ;--)
Hugs and blessings,
