Mrswoolybill in the garden. The shape beside her shadow is our 22-year-old Flymo.

The operating handle of the Flymo had broken a few moments before, so perhaps the title should really describe me as The Grim Mower.
Except to say that Moira, who controls the exchequer at Woolybill Towers, had just learned how much the replacement mower would cost, had every right to look grim . . . Though the new Flymo has a grass-collecting box, so there will be no raking at all from now on.

The secrecy of our holiday destination is paramount. I want the world to know that my security is better than Harry's, while I can assure you that Moira's security is infinitely better than Kate's: I have it from the horse's mouth that no photos of the Crown Jewels will appear, for which you will all be extremely grateful Wink

Who would have thought that shadows could be so photogenic ~ a special composition.

I like the thought of the paparazzi stalking the Woolybills Wink

Woolybills on the run, watch those cameras you never know where they might pop out, and I'm not talking about your fruit of the loom. excellent Bill good fun well captured.

Funny! - having been overseas working for most of the last 6 summers I mowed the lawn for the very first time this summer, quite tactile and rewarding....then I did it the 3rd and 4th time, and it was less so.....Steve

I certainly have been out of the loop, in what appears to be a rather exclusive club of Saturday Shadow Followers. A very creative and well captured image, probably the best of the shadowily bunch so far.

PS - mystery solved - we were in Yorkshire! Anyway, I'm so glad I've found it now (in Danny's Award Gallery...)!! Grin
