Desert Garden Shadows

I love taking photos in the late afternoon. Today I was strolling through the garden, looking for something blooming to post, but other than a few Desert Marigolds, there was nothing going on. However, I did notice a few nice shadows here and there.

Mesquite Tree shadow. A heart-shaped sun catcher hangs in the branches.

Not much blooming here either! I love the red shadow the heart sun-catcher made. Beautiful!

great pics... I think I like the bell the best. We might actually get some sun here today! I've got a whole lot of winter gardening to do, and every weekend up to now has been to cold to get it done...

I'd argue against your having 'nothing going on'. I saw green in one of the photos and you didn't have to go far to find it:)

Today is a perfect day for shadows. The temps here are bitter but it at least brought blue skies and the shadows contrast nicely on the snow.

Absolutely gorgeous shadow pictures.

Lovely warm welcoming photos, a fabulous counterpoint to my yard where yet more snow is falling...(!)

Hmmm, I THOUGHT I posted a comment, but I can't find it on my browser so maybe I just was planning it. It's so good to bask in the warmth of your photos, especially while it's snowing here AGAIN.

I love your photo shadows. You have a good eye.

Very artistic Ayiana. And so nice to see shadows-that means the sun is shinning somewhere.

There is not a lot blooming here either, but for different reasons. Love that little lizzard on the wall, very colourful.

This kind of lizzard I would love to welcome in my garden :-) ! And I also like the lovely bell you have! Very nice snapshots!
