mums and shadows


please click on photo to see shadows up close



this sunday marks our first autumn weekend. once again it is that time of year where many people on long island take home a pot of mums from their local nursery or grocery. with summer officially over it's important to relish the autumn colors before the cold winter sets in. the season always seems to go by way too quick!


thank you tracy, from hey harriet's shadow shot sunday meme. please go here if you'd like to participate or see more shadow shots. hope you are enjoying a peaceful sunday.

Oh how pretty those 'mums' are! It does seem that autumn flies by much more quickly than the other seasons. Enjoy the gorgeous fall colours while they last :) Have a lovely week!

Red chrysanthemums
huddling against a white wall
keep the world intact.

Gorgeous color against the white, heightened by the shadows.

(I think I'll have to get some mums for my front door & deck!)
