“Do you know," Peter asked, "why swallows build in the eaves of houses? It is to listen to the stories.” ~ J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan


Maggie finds a spot of sun


  1. Ooooh, neat picture! I love the shadow of the plant in the window...and of course your sweet little kitty too.


  2. Jaime - Thanks! This is one of those photos that speak to me more than I thought it would. I'll probably make a print for myself, which I seldom do. Again, thanks so much.


  3. ah, i see what you mean!
    the photo is great but i think yours is some variety of the shefflera whereas the leaves in my shadow photo belong to a rather large tree, known here as a horse chestnut (aesculus hyppocastanum)

  4. Polona - You are GOOD! That is the plant! Now I have to look up horse chestnuts. I'm not sure I've ever seen one.

    I am VERY impressed with your ability to identify a plant by the shadow of its leaves. You are a woman to be reckoned with!
