Shadow Shot Sunday...I'm going to kiss a toad...

Sun, oh glorious sun!!!
I was waiting and waiting,
camera in hand,
as the sun finally kissed
a toad...

GEESH...haven't seen the sun in days!
And of course, I have to work today...go figure...
but at least I'll get to enjoy it for a few brief moments,
as it peeks over an anxious, spent garden
from the previous year...

As the bluegrass grows, can you hear it...
we'll all be priming our mowers
for this special event...
SUMMER...it's coming!!!

However, it's late in the season down under
at Tracy's gig, funny how that works,
but Spring will be on all of us Northern hemispherians' minds...
is that a word...
let's play at Harriets'...K...

Sylvia K said...

Oh, yes! It is coming and there isn't a cloud in our blue sky today! I'm ecstatic! What delightful shadow shots you have! I'd kiss a toad, too!! Have a wonderful weekend!

Oh yeah, a bit of sun coming my way today as well(probably followed by snow tomorrow) Love your toad, wish I had some real ones. I never see toads anymore. Where are they? Working on my compost pile today...think i have found a way to corgi proof it!
Happy Easter to you,

Enjoy the sun while you can...

EVEN IN SHADOW

Even in shadow where there is no light,
One may take comfort and one may delight
That darkness has lost its power to thrall
Those who are living on this earthly ball.

You have to kiss a lot of toads (and frogs) before you find your prince!!

Ralph said...

It seems to be a warm day beginning anew with the ground mist dissipating the early sunlight into soft shadows. A nice day of sunshine, work or no, invites us to enjoy as much sunlight as we can...

Spadoman said...

I wonder if that frog would get along with the monster on Hey Harriet's shadow shot. Good job capturing that one. The other shots are cool as well. Grass, reminds me, I gotta get the mower tuned up, (and find someone to operate it)
No sun here for days. I hope we see some soon too!

Peace

We're thinking that the alien is enjoying that sun just as much as you Sharon!! Didn't this last bit of rain push the grass to the greenest?!! Come on sun....stay for awhile!

Greyscale Territory said...

A gorgeous angle of gentle light in these photos! Enchanting! (And love Spadoman's comment about your toad and Tracy's "monster" sharing a rendezvous! Hysterical!)

Aaaaagh! Freedom is nearly closing! Tomorrow I must bury myself in those things that need to be done before school returns! Otherwise I will be creating stress before more stress! And that's bad!

But fgor today, the sun is dawning gently and I want out - just walking wherever! I need to dodge the odd bursts of rain, but that's OK!

It's been quite exciting these holidays finding "secret" places near home that I didn't know existed! What I thought was a small swampland reserve ended up being another entrance to the Arthurs Seat National Park! Another opportunity to wander the bushland I so love! And all within walking distance of home! Saves petrol!

Hope your Easter weekend has been beautiful for you and Scratchy!

Biggest hugs dear sister! I so love my Sunday time here in your world!

Cassie said...

I'm SO glad that you did not really kiss a toad! Cute SHadowShot. Spring has sprung here in N.Idaho...still getting a few light snow coverings though. I love it! Happy SSS and Easter too.

EG Wow said...

Better that the sun kiss a toad than me press my lips on it's warty skin. :)

Sadly, the sun has been scarce over Ontario too. Any time I DO see the sun I feel I must grab my camera and take advantage of the lovely light.

Oh interesting shot...Happy SSS!

Beth said...

I love the sun kissing the frog, and I just love your blog...hmmmmm, now off to do some exploring.
Hugs,
Beth P
hope you get a chance to hop over and see my shadow shot for this week, I'm #106...I know, I know late as usual...*sigh*

Paula Scott said...

We've already had to mow our lawn. But, yes, the sun is out! So is the wind! But, no matter...the warmth of the sun feels so good and I love summa time.

and our desert toads come out for the summa too.

Hey Harriet said...

Sunshine! Yay! Finally! It sure has been a long time coming for you. I can understand your excitement but kissing a toad? Really? You funny thing! Maybe your toads are a bit more kissable than the ones we have over here :)

Have a great week Sharon and I hope that glorious sunshine continues to shine!
