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  :P
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  :D

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!

Its a lovely French town (or maybe village) called Samoens near the Swiss border.

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

Screenshot - 8_29_2008 , 11_04_04 PM.png

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.

Nice, p3lb0x! A blank slate onto which you can project whatever you want! The possibilities are limitless...  ;)

Greetings from Kalorama, location in UICBM, (Universal Intercontinental Ballistic Missile), format: S37.81836 E145.36428

View from my study when not obscured by Police helicopters  :D

Not in any of the pictures but Melbourne is around to the left approx. 55km away.

Hornbill

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!

You can see the wall round courtyard from here..

Mum's just taken more - watch this space!

More pics... The second one is the view from lounge of our Lemon Tree which was grafted with an orange originally, and when frost (yes we do get frost sometimes) damaged it, it grew from below graft and now we have Loranges!  ;D They taste like cross between a Lemon & Orange and are orange in colour....  :o

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?  ;D

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!  ;D
