The shadow of our house on next door's house

Earlier this week I took advantage of the lovely spring sunshine (though I wrapped up in coat and scarf as I'm still feeling the cold) to make these quick sketches in our back garden.

I began wanting to draw our nextdoor neighbour's magnolia tree, and our old nicely weathered garden fence, but when I noticed how the sun threw the shadow of our house onto our neighbour's side wall, I became fascinated by that.

Our neighbour lends us a glimpse of their magnolia tree and we repay them with the shadow of our house. Sounds like a fair swap.

At first I read " The shadow of our horse...." lol. Those are lovely!

Thank you Perpetual C. I used to dream about owning a horse as a child. My Dad even bought me a bridle and stirrups to play with. But I only ever had an imaginary horse, which for a while looked a lot like a chest of drawers!
