Through My Window:My Favorite View


I have been joining Robert (Thoughts of a Father) this week in his photo project titled "Show Me." Today he has asked participants to post photos of their favorite views from their home. For a few weeks now I have reserved Thursday to post photos of the view Through My Window. It is one of many favorite views in my home. One day this week the skies were gorgeous. I love sitting at my computer and being able to see nature all around me. For some thirty years I lived in a subdivision with someone living on each side of me and in front and back of me. It is a wonderful pleasure to look out and see space and nature.

This week the turkeys have been coming in to the yard in great numbers some days. They come to eat the spilled seed from the bird feeder. This past Monday there were ten here together as you can see. There were seven gobblers and three hens.

And who wouldn't love this view! This is one of two fawns that have come to the yard this summer. This one is the youngest and seems to like the flowerbed around the oak tree. I took this on Sunday but I've seen it everyday this week.

The skies are the best thing about the view out my window. This was just before sunset the other night. I did walk out on the deck and take this so it wouldn't be through the glass of the sunroom window.

Last week I participated in an "Opening Doors" challenge with Jientje and posted some photos of my deck and the views I can see from there. If you didn't see those please click (here) to see more of the favorite views at my home.

What a wonderful view you have. I am so envious of the deer and the turkeys... lately nobody has been visiting my back yard... even sparrows and robins and blue jays seem to have forsaken me. I'm sure they'll return but I am very lonely for them.

Your views all seem wonderfully free of electric wires too.

Hard to believe it is 9/11 yet again. I had company this evening, so I probably won't post anything new until morning.

I hope to one day have a view of fields and streams when I look out my window. For now I'll let my jealousy show through.

Mar said...

You live in a beautiful place, love all the nature around you and your visitors are darling!!

Carletta: Okay, I'm jealous. turkeys and deer out your window, how lucky you are. The sky was also a wonderful capture.

George Townboy said...

All beautiful shots, Carletta. You are blessed.

Dr.John said...

If I had a view like that outside my window it would be my favorite view too. You are so lucky.

Rose said...

I envy you your views...love that little fawn!

Gattina said...

June said...

I love your view!

Kay said...

I love the deer!

Gramma L said...

The view through your window is gorgeous. It reminds me of something my daughter told me about sitting and looking out your window and listening to God speak to you. You have a great place to sit, listen and enjoy the world around you.

Bazza said...

You're very lucky (in my humble opinion) to have such fantastic views, I loved the deer especially.

Cris said...

This is breathtaking... and the wildlife around, that's one of the things I cannot get here in the city...

Paz said...

I love your view. Just wonderful!

Nice series. Thanks for sharing.

Just about all of my photos are shot from one room or another in my house so I would have a tough time picking one.

My wife and I spent some considerable amount of time last week counting my photos using a computer and a calculator. When it went past 40,000 digital images we just flat out quit. It is a real job trying to count them even with a computer.

Anyway, the two photos you chose are really nice. I can wish for turkeys or deer but that just won't happen here where I live. It is a big surprise to see a baby rabbit.

My Sky Watch Friday blog is at my Canon Pixels blog. If you have time I would appreciate your having a look at the sky peeking through the oak tree leaves.

SandyCarlson said...

I can well see why this would be a favorite view!

Craver Vii said...

I'm glad you've got open space now to see things, and breathe... and take pictures. ;-) Well done, C!

Your EG Tour Guide said...

You DO have lovely views from your windows. No wires ruining the views is a bonus. Happy Sky Watch!

Leora said...

How wonderful that you can see so much nature from your house.

kjpweb said...

Very beautiful! And getting wildlife delivered to your doorstep ain't too shabby, either!
Great Post!
Cheers, Klaus

Carver said...

You have wonderful views from your window. They are all great shots but my favorites are the shot of the fawn and the one just before sunset.

babooshka said...

All these images around one place are just wonderful. The fawn is just adorable too.

Twisted Fencepost said...

With that view I wouldn't get any blogging done!

reluctantfarmchik said...

Ooh - these are beautiful shots. I love your little fawn shot too.

Louise said...

You are so lucky to look out of your home and see space and nature. I'm glad you appreciate it. Beautiful skies and critters, too!

The Texican said...

Sure is pretty where you live Carletta. Thanks for the great photos. Pappy

Eddie D. said...

Great views out your window.

You have a room for rent? LOL! What a beautiful place you have.

piedmontperspective said...

You have a beautiful view! I haven't been quick enough to get pictures of the deer. The fawn is adorable! Great photos, Carletta!

Tommy V said...

great series of pictures. I wish I could see the turkeys in the wild.

Anne-Berit said...

I would like to have a view like that.Beautiful!

vincibene said...

Wonderful view! I like the last photo, beautiful colors!

dianne - bunny trails said...

Sigh - what a lovely view. I would so like to live somewhere less urban. Your photos are all beautiful. How peaceful and pleasant. :D

Jim said...

Hi Carletta, I pick the fawn picture, next will be the birds and I don't even like birds, third will be the pretty sky taken from under the porch.
I hope your friends in Freeport will do alright. Their biggest problem will be their levee. If it holds and isn't topped, they should be as there isnt the strongest winds there.
Happy SkyWatching, thank you for your visit and nice comment. We appreciate your prayers as do your friends.
