Reflections and Shadows
Low sun and long shadows of the front garden gate.
After doing two hours penance this morning, clearing up more brash at the Mill (safety glasses firmly in place I might add) I spent the afternoon digging the front borders and planting bulbs, and primroses and pansies. Not much to show for my efforts but come the Spring ........
A quick trip into Welshpool for a few odds and ends and a time-out walk along the canal. I like my time-outs.
The sky was starting to grey over, but at least it was still dry. Not many folks around this time of the day.
Everywhere looks docile and sleepy.
Including the swans.
A little while back, someone was out walking their dog along the tow path. The dog yapped and yelped like they do sometimes. The male swan attacked it and dragged it into the water and the poor little mite was drowned. Beautiful as they are they can be lethal too.
And the ducks. Most of them were curled up on the embankment. What would these three be saying in duck language d'you think? '.....Cam on, 'urry up, chop chop ....'
'........Ready, Steady ........Goooooooo'

Happy Shadow Shot Sunday
