My entry is the first picture. Today a grey sea fog descended on the vicinity and this view of our back garden shows it casting a grey shroud or shadow (a bit of a stretch this but you know what I mean) on the proceedings over the fence where everything is veiled in mist, making it the valley of the shadow. However, the sun is a presence in the form of the sun on our fence and the sun balloon weight which hanging in space from our tree. Also the daffodils are coming through. I do think they do look a bit like the sun, and they are such a hopeful flower after the bleak winter, heralding spring with their trumpet shapes. And of course they are used as a symbol of hope in many cancer charities such as Marie Curie.
I have also included a bluebell which we have in our garden because I think the land used to be woodland. There are a lot of these in people's gardens round here and have somehow survived for many years in cultivated gardens despite onslaughts from general horticulture. I think this is a bluebell, but actually looking at it it doesn't quite look like the wild ones you see. I am trying to cast some illumination on this matter in the general fug which is my brain without much success.
This posting is starting to meander alarmingly, but observe the weedy clump of earth in the flowerbed. What I do is pull great clumps of weeds out of the ten foot and give them to the guinea pigs to eat as a bit of recycling. Then I chuck them on the garden, where they regrow and sometimes if I run out of weeds on the tenfoot I reuse these clumps. Even if they don't get reused we get extra earth on our garden for free. So this is my own recycling weed clump plant(as in factory, of the organic variety). Interesting or what LOL
