My World and Welcome to It!

These are my thoughts and opinions about life in general. I also get daily prompts from DSP which inspire me to write. If I throw in some scrapbook pages I've done, photos I've taken, and stories about me, you will have an idea about my loony life!

View from my window

DSP Prompt: View from my window (literal or mind)

I have the best view of my backyard from where I sit most of the time that I'm in the house. I have these huge windows that look right on my back deck. Right in front of me is the water garden that is visited every day by doves, cardinals, blue jays, and wrens. It is so much fun to watch them. On the other side of the deck is my blue hydrangea bush and gardenia bushes. I also have a great view of the flower bed on the left of the back yard that is filled with rhododendron and ferns. On the very back is a flower bed full of rose bushes. On the right I am starting a flower bed with a butterfly bush, lots of cannas, nandina bushes, angel trumpet, Russian sage. I have also planted 3 tomato plants and a green pepper plant wherever I found an open spot with lots of sun. Hopefully I will get some vegetables this summer.

Pat - great blog! I've spent way too much time this morning wandering through - especially loved the travel posts. It brought back memories of a lot of places I've been, too, and I'm so glad you're visiting ballparks and learning about baseball! I heard that Fluor Field is patterned after Fenway, and it has a replica of the "green monster"!! Don't forget to include Fluor Field in your ballpark visits, even if the Drive is only Class A. If you EVER make it out here, you'll have to see Safeco Field and the Seattle Mariners! AND hike in our state park here!! Hugs - Island Gypsy
