VIEW FROM OUR WINDOW 1

 

This is the view from our kitchen sink. I had just fed our hens their favourite breakfast of porridge and mixed corn. The sawdust is where Jon had been sawing logs yesterday.

 

We live just off the North York Moors - an area of sheer beauty and nature. No matter when we travel over the moors the scenery is dramatic. Yesterday I had to nip over to the doctor's surgery for a routine appointment - the sky looked so moody I just wondered what it had in store?

What is the view from your window?

P.S. I loved the second photo so much I used it as a header - will change it every month I think!

  4. Loving your new header Denise.

    The view from my front window is similar houses, the view from my kitchen window is my garden. I prefer the view from my kitchen. :)

  7. Thanks for popping over to Beyond the Nook. Your views are lovely! I'm so looking forward to our trip to Scarborough. I used to live in Driffield when I was a child - my mum , and her mum and dad were all born there.

  8. What lovely photos, the second one is so serene. I remember visiting the area a few years back, and loved every inch of it.

  10. I've heard so much about the Yorkshire Moors. They're much lovelier in reality than in fiction, Denise.

  11. I would love to look out of your window & see the hens feeding. Very therapeutic to watch. The moors definitely have a beauty of their own.

    What do I look out onto? A fairly pretty garden with buildings behind.
    From the front window there is the street with the houses opposite. In the summer it looks quite dramatic when hot air balloons emerge seemingly from behind the rooftops. My favourite happening round here.

  12. That is a great header! I just love it. The view from my kitchen window isn't that great - just the side of the back neighbour's house. Although, my rhododendron bush is showing some buds already. Unfortunately, I have to drive to get a view, but when I see it, it's worth the drive. Am paying for my flight today! Yay! We leave August 14!!! Any word on that holiday cottage?

  13. Lovely photos. of course I love the moors and the sheep, but your hens look so healthy and robust. You know, that photo of the moors would make a nice wall picture or in a calendar. You should also keep it for the letter 'Y' day.

  16. Love the new header D - judging by our skies tonight the same view could be white with snow this weekend x

  17. How many hens do you have? Do they lay eggs everyday? Keeping chicken and helping my parents was part of my childhood days.

  18. Oddly enough, as soon as I came in and saw that header, I had it in mind to tell you how much I liked it - it's wonderful how you've captured the sheep crossing right at the spot where the welcome plaque is, and yes, what a great sky backdrop - perfect! I think you could sell that to the tourist board.

    My immediate view is our little backyard and we ae surrounded by houses.
