Sunslant and bird shadow



Today is a sunshine and shadow day, a bee buzzing birdsong day, a butterfly wing and blossom day. Today is a day when sharp bird shadows run fast across the ground like mice. Today will be a day of heat and languid rest. So we walk to the hill top in the slant light of early hours. And we walk like a string of ginger pearls, like an abacus of cats, like a daisy chain.













And on our return we look for a place where the sun has spread out a warm shawl for us to curl on.

It's a beautiful morning out there today isn't it? I feel magic in the air when the sun's out this time of day.x

They are so clever - do they always hang out together like this? Are they following you about? xxx

shouldn't that be a "marigold chain" not a daisy chain?

Your photographs are the only thing that could do your words justice. You capture the mood so well.
