Winter’s Light: Shadow Play

Winter’s Light: Shadow Play

The Gardening Gone Wild photo contest for February is all about Winter Light. The picture below is my entry which I took from our upstairs window out across the yard. I’m calling it Shadow Play, you can probably figure out why!

The shadows of the ice covered trees are dancing across the backyard and the children’s playset creating an unusual landscape for us here in Tennessee. To the left is a birch and ornamental grasses while below and slightly off center is the birdbath garden.
