"Throw open your window and let the scenery of clouds and sky enter your room."
-- Yosa Buson
I am very fortunate to have wonderful, big windows in my house . . . along with some pretty great views. (It helps to live on a hill.) (And to be a gardener, too, I suppose.) I thought it might be fun to share my views with you once in a while.
Last Friday, as the sun was coming up, I could see some remaining fall colors in my little "grove" of trees (there is a little, glowing serviceberry peeking out on the left, then the now-nearly-bare larch, and then the red-bronze dogwood on the right). A storm was due to come in, so I wanted to capture what might have been the last of the color . . . out my window.
Meanwhile, this is what that sunrise looked like from the other side of my house - looking west, out my front windows.
That glow gets me every time!
And here's something new this year. . .
That fabulous orange tree? It's an oak tree. And never in my years of looking out this window has it turned orange! It's one of those oaks that holds on to its tough brown leaves all winter long. . . usually. But in this very strange color season, its leaves have turned a brilliant orange -- and I can see them out my window.
Then the storm came through . . .
And I got this view out my window . . .
Here's to a great week for all of us!
Don't forget to take in the view . . . out your window.
