Sunday Details, One Shadow Shot and a Poem
This is my shadow shot for Hey Harriet's Shadow Shot Sunday. The light falls slantwise across the bed very artistically.
At the end of this post you will find a poem by W.H. Davies - a wonderful writer who advocated wandering about. He wrote a book called "The Diary of a Supertramp." Many of you probably know of him.
Anyway, I read Lavinia's post where she says she is lazy and has just hung around home. I think hanging around home is a good idea.
These three pictures are from my friend Joyce's garden on Long Island.
Her garden is shady and beautifully restrained so you can note every contrast of shape and color.
I'm not quite sure how this green car snuck in amongst the flowers, but it is rather cool and was taken on a Sunday walk.
......and larkspur taken in the Penn South community garden. R's camera takes much better close-up details than mine - as it should since it cost three times as much!
A very tasteful tiny garden on 19th Street............
.............and an exuberant window box at Moran's Restaurant on 10th Avenue.
What is this life if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare
No time to see, in broad daylight,
Streams full of stars, like skies at night.
No time to turn at Beauty's glance,
And watch her feet, how they can dance.
