Shadow Shot Sunday


The sunflowers at school are beautiful and this one is just perfect. Sun and blue skies are still here for the moment.
The cat is my latest impulse buy-from ebay-it came this morning-along with a lovely pink knitted bag from Dawn of 'Rattling On'-thanks Dawn! I also got a Tate Magazine-full of tantalizing art, and a Times Educational Supplement (unopened at the moment)
I love bundles of post like that, especially on a sunny Saturday morning.
Can you guess the size of the cat? It is only as long as my little finger. It is very sweet and can probably chase a tiny wooden mouse I have-if I ever find where that went. Sounds as if I live in chaos doesn't it? And to some extent-I do!
I hope your Sundays are sunny.
Visit Hey Harriet here for more shadowy shots.

I do like sunflowers - hope your children are going to count the seeds . . .
The little cat is sweet - sadly anything that size in our house would disappear never to be seen again.

Yellow brightens the shadows, nice shots.

Okay, that little cat is heart-meltingly cute. I especially love that first picture of it. Hope you're having a lovely weekend!

I love that little cat, and the sunflower looks so perfect-unreal!
Glad you like the bag.

Your cat has so much personality, so cute!

That sunflower is perfect! The school down the street from me planted some sunflowers this year in their little plot, but I didn't get a picture, unfortunately.

The sunflower is PERFECT! Your little cat is really cute.
Have a happy Sun-day!
PS. How old are your students and what do you teach if I may ask?

Thanks for stopping by. I teach English as a foreign language at a public primary school, grades 3 to 6. I love your job, too. My first Uni degree was as a Kindergarten Teacher.

Brilliant sunflower and shadow! It's huge and dramatic against the blue sky! And love the little cat with its own subtle shadow!

Hey Harriet said...

I adore that little cat! You have mail delivered on weekends? Lucky you! Aussie Post don't work on weekends so fun packages never arrive to me on weekends :(

Your comment about all the social networking sites was funny. It's all too much isn't it? I don't have myspace or Facebook. Twitter may yet be a passing phase for me. I'm having trouble getting me head around it right now! Blogging rocks best of all! :)

Lovely sunflower and nifty shadows. Cute little cat too. I shared Plumeria shadows at Happily Retired Gal and 'doggy shadows' at Small Reflections this week.
Hugs and blessings,

Love the kitty, but too small for me, I have 3 very large live ones, chaos reigns here also. I'll email you for mailing info for your rock when I get back from Sedona!
