Garden Shadows

The clematis and fairy rose against this south facing wall get a second life now that the sun is low. They suffer in the summer heat but bloom again now, casting their shadows against the wall.


The red maple in the back yard is one of the last in the neighborhood to turn.
The salvia needs to be cut back and maybe replaced. It did not do well this summer. It makes an interesting shadow though.

See more shadows at Hey Harriet, hosted by Tracy.

Thanks for the tour and shadowplay around your garden. Salvia and the pot was my favourite.

This is a beautiful garden, the shadows artistic from the metal squares (man-made and angular) to the natural shapes of the flowers. I like this garden as the shadows play off the wall nicely.

Thanks for the award, I will have this written by mid-week. I enjoy the recognition!

It's a lovely garden you have here - the colours of the flowers are so pretty - and it looks like glorious weather too - enjoy your Sunday!

Barb said...

Thought I'd come and smell your flowers, Martha, since I'm having snow today. I planted a Clematis in Denver, but it didn't do well - maybe too hot?

The flower shadows are great. I really like the square thing in the first pic. Nice job.

Your clematis is so lovely and I like how the shadows create additional interest against the wall. I hadn't thought of capturing shadows in photos. Great idea!

I am laughing about my post disappearing on you. I have often wondered if publishing and editing causes confusion. I guess I have my answer...thanks for visiting!

Martha: Thanks for visiting my blog. It gave me an opportunity to go back through several weeks of your posts. I enjoyed your adventure on the John Muir trail and the pictures of the lake. You and I could exchange a lot of neat places with one another. I really enjoy your site. Lee
