Walled Garden Shadows


These are shadows on the walls of Redhall Walled Garden, a wonderful place of horticultural therapy and healing on the banks of the Water of Leith.

Ferns make most excellent shadows, their shadow is often more beautiful than the real thing!

hello crafty green, that wall, those shadows - echoes from my childhood in a very little very mouse-filled and cockroach infested home. (it adjoined a bakery and a restaurant on the main street of atrincham in cheshire) despite all the ugliness of the home, we had a garden in which grew gooseberries, apples, grapes, strawberries and there was a wall covered with tree shadows and vine shadows and i loved that wall for reasons i can't even begin to imagine but it somehow made me feel safe. these are gorgeous pictures and i am grateful for your having triggered that magic memory for me!! have a lovely day. steven

Lovely shadows on that weathered old wall. Interesting links too. Both organisations are doing great work.
The rabbit in my banner photo was on the beach near where we were staying-I have not seen a wild white rabbit before and saw a couple while we were there. This one sat still long enough to have his picture taken!

Beautiful brick walls, just echo the sounds of summer...I'm afraid ours are fleeting here in the states, I'm seeing the signs...

An old garden wall—
weathered red brick crumbling, but
holding shadows fast.

Ooooh. I particularly like the top one! I haven't posted lately, but I am certainly seeing shadows as I walk. So glad you are doing this.
