I've been meaning to post here for a while
but seeing this reh outside my window today prompted me to finally post (I think they're called "roe" deer in english?) *



here's what I usually look at when I take a mini-break from computer
(weeping willow I think, looks great in the wind esp)


there's loads of suburban style houses too but I wont show you those  tongue
Re people being envious of country views I was in town (pop.100,000) last night and was wondering a bit about living on the land ...
Can be too quiet for my taste sometimes

* that was taken with a 3x zoom only so it was quite close - they're tiny deer really, but when they go they could be African antelopes - springing in the air and somehow they seem a lot bigger cause of the power/strength they have

Edit/ from those pictures it could be lots of places but just for the record I'm on northern edge of the Pfälzer Wald in Germany

I was hurtling (as in moving very quickly) down a hill on a country road a couple of weeks ago and a deer kept pace with me for about 10 seconds before bounding into the bushes on the side of the road. Scared the snot out of me, actually! Deer here (Vancouver Island, Canada) are fairly large animals - really make a mess out of a car if you hit one - and I didn't fancy having it knock me off my bike.

Lovely photos, BTW Tom. Olympus 5050 by chance  cheesy

Can I cheat and use a photograph of from the window of apartment I stayed in on a skiing holiday earlier this year?

Hopefully I can get this picture to display!

They look posed because I watched baby graze over to mother and when they were close, I smacked the window.

My front yard thanks to our friends at google.  Looks like it was trash day too. ;-)

I don't think my neighbor would approve of my taking a picture of the side of his house (all my window sees).

The clivias are attractive, I think the closest we come to those here, in Canada, is the daffodil.

Yes the Grey Hornbill, but it's more brown! They make a strange whistling sound! That pic is the view from my Bathroom door into a courtyard....

The Clivias bloom in late Winter - a bit of colour in our dry rainless Winter!

CleverCat,
Are you saying that your bathroom exits to a courtyard?
Actually, even if it's just a window that opens to the courtyard, how very, very nice!

CleverCat, thanks for posting these! These views are so inspiring. I love the bricks, too...we don't have them in California, and so the architecture here looks rather flat and uninteresting, in general.

4wd, your photos are awesome, too. I especially like the one showing the lights at night.

It's fun to see all these different places!

I've noticed that on programmes like Renovate My Family & Extreme Makeover Home Edition. We don't build houses with wood here - too many termites maybe?  Grin

We owned the whole 1/2 acre then sub-divided and I designed this house for my Disability needs as the front house was becoming a problem for me! now Mum can leave me for a day if necessary and I can cope. We are down a 30 metre pan handle - nice and private...

It's a loooong trot up to front gate!  Grin
