Pretty as a picture
Out a front window to the front garden & the crab apple that blooms every other year. The wood frame makes it look like a piece of art hanging on the wall.
Over at A Photographer's Garden Blog, David has challenged bloggers to take photos out their windows. The challenge being to do it now–don't worry about framing up, making it perfect. I've been trying to go the entire winter without showing my garden in snow. I have a good library of shots to last me the winter. You've seen enough snow shots. I firmly believe this time of year, it's nice to see green. So I decided to show my preferred view, and the current view. I like the contrast. We just put in all new windows on our second floor. The former had been there for the first 112 years. Can't say it improved the view, but there's less of a windchill factor INSIDE the house this year.
Out the kitchen window. The playset.
Out the kitchen window, the swing set & checkerboard grass garden. Note how well the view over the fence gets hidden in the summer.
Out the back door toward the deck/hot tub area.
