Succulent shadow

Over here in Holland the weather is quiet rainy and it's even cold outside. Brrr. No shadows around here right now but I anticipated and took a shot last weekend of a shadow made by a basket filled with succulent plants. This basket was a birthday gift for both of us when hubby and me celebrated turning 100 years old together, a few months ago!

Hi Carin,
I would love to have those plants in my watering can planter, LOL

Lovely shadow you have as usual.

Have a nice evening...

Love those succulents! We haven't had any since moving to the Island. I hope our next place we will have some! And happy belated! 100 is so old! :)

Hey Harriet said...

A lovely gift and a pretty shadow! I don't know much about plants, but one of the comments here said those ones are difficult to kill. They sound like my knid of plants ;D

Oh Carin - you would have never guessed. We walked passed the store yesterday and what did I see, baskets of succulents. I immediately thought of you..... :)

I think it would be fun to visit Arnhem once again also.

What a beautiful shot! And I think it is funny that you and your hubby combine your ages for your birthdays ... very FUN!

It's good to anticipate and think ahead. I do that, too, when I see a shadow shot to take.

Love your shadow shot.

Happy belated birthday to you and your husband.

Best,
Paz
