Oy. I owe memes! I owe so many memes, I’m not sure who I owe them to anymore. But here’s the one that Becky started, nearly a month ago, asking for pictures of the view from my front door.
Can I just say? The view in March is rather pitiful. The grass is brown, there are no leaves on the trees and the garden is just a patch of earth and mud. I didn’t even manage to capture any birds at the bird feeders.
This is the view as I look to the left of my front door. It’s where we have our garden in the summer, as evidenced by that big patch of brown. No, not the brown grass. The brown mud. While it may seem strange to some people to put the garden in the front yard, it’s where we get the most sun. It’s also right outside my kitchen door, making it an old-fashioned (and very convenient) kitchen garden.
This is what I see if I look straight ahead while standing on my front stoop. Bird bath, bird feeders, but no birds. Trust me, they are usually there. We get chickadees and cardinals and lots of sparrows. There are goldfinches and tufted titmice and several different varieties of woodpeckers. There’s even an occasional hawk on the hunt. It’s quite entertaining for Mason, really.
Finally, this is my view to the right. As you can see, I live on a corner lot and this is basically main street in my town. I do love my neighbor’s house, it’s such a charming example of New England.
At last, a bit of color. I can’t see this first, tiny crocus from my front door, but I found it when I walked around the corner to go back in the house. Ahhh! Spring!
So, that’s that. My front yard. Hope you enjoyed the scenery!
