Outside my kitchen window


Messyfish was asking what is outside your kitchen window. I must say I don't stand in front of my kitchen window very often. I do peek out to see what the dog is up to from time to time. There is a screen on the window. It is a small window, probably 33 inches wide. If I look straight out this is what I see. You can see the flowers that are in the window box this year. They haven't grown much in the short time they have been in the window box.
If you stand in front of this little window and look to the left this is what you see. The business end of the patio is here. There is a door from the kitchen that aligns with the archway. We pop in and out of the house to grill.
If you stand in front of this little window and look to the right you see toward the other end of the patio. You can't quite see the right side of the patio because it is a long patio.
What can you see out your kitchen window??

Lisa....what pretty views you have from your kitchen window.

Me, well the previous owner planted a small tree a few metres from the window......so all I see is a tree. Ha!
You have me realise I have got to move the tree next winter.......

I haven't taken a pic from my kitchen window since the winter. It's really changed now!
If I tried to take a picture this morning though all of my dirty dishes would block the view :P

WHAT A WONDERFUL VIEW! I'm green with envy. If that were my window I would stand there and gaze out of it all day long.
I get to look at my neighbor's kid's play set and their rotting brown garden shed. Ugh.
Love the rose you make for your seester.

I love your view! It is very untamed and green and peaceful - what a great resting place after a long day! Out my back window is a grassy lawn, one birch tree and three dogs.

I sure do like what is outside your window. That is a gorgeous inviting yard.

Lovely question by messyfish.
Wow, Lisa you can see your garden with flowers. I always admire people take time to upkeep and maintain their garden.

Enjoying the best scene from a window is so luxury especially it's like hanging a materpiece in the room.

I see my garden too from my window, just that all with green grass:)
