Alice - Through the Looking Glass (Window)

... (with apologies to Lewis Carroll)

These are the views I could see through my kitchen window this morning - actually, they were taken whilst standing just outside the window rather than have a flywire mesh across all the photos. Posted by Picasa

Well! A little while ago when I visited there was no comment link here but now there is. I've been visiting Tanya. She has a good sense of humour :) I enjoyed her blog.
Lovely pics here Alice.

This looks like a lovely place to live...greenery abounds!

ms*robyn said...

how lovely. It must be delightful to sit with your very first cup of tea in the morning.

Calidore said...

Ohh why can't I have a veiw like that. Do you get the morning sun?

Alice said...

Calidore - all that side of the house faces north east, so we do get morning sun. With the roof on the deck all of the windows on that side are protected from the sun in the summer but in the winter, when the sun is much lower in the sky, it comes into the rooms for a few hours in the morning; not as much as it used to before the deck was roofed, but it's small loss when compared to the advantages of a waterproof roof (rather than the shadecloth).

Beautiful. All that green. I love the smell of gum trees. I am sure you do too.

Motherkitty said...

What a view! I'm sure you and your family enjoy this deck every day you can. As always, beautiful pictures.

Flossy said...

I love all the greenery on your verandah! A perfect place to sit and contemplate :)

Val said...

Being a morning person myself, I can really appreciate the orientation of your veranda, Alice. What a great place to start the day! And the loss of a bit of light is more than made up for by the ability to sit out there when it's raining, or am I weird for enjoying such a thing?

Sandy said...

Green and lush. I can't wait for spring. This has been a really dreary winter where I live. Record breaking rain and wind. Wahhhhhhh......

Alice said...

Val - absolutely agree (not that you're weird) about the pleasure of sitting out there when it's raining. I think everyone loves the sound of rain on a metal roof - oh, probably not Sandy though.

That does it. I definitely hate you. Susan

Seeing Anew said...

What a peaceful view! Were there tons of birds singing when you shot these, or was it as still and quiet as the photos look?

Garden Obsession said...

Have I mentioned how much I miss AU? *sigh* Beautiful view! Reminds me a lot of the Texas Hill Country.

Shell said...

Wow! This is so beautiful. Everything looks so green and lush. Look at all of those beautiful trees! I love trees. I'm so envious of your spectacular outlook. =)

Kali said...

Oh my! A perfect spot to enjoy all the beauty :)
p.s. hugs!

Reflection Through The Seasons said...

Beautiful pictures Alice. I particularly like the first one. You have a lovely veranda. You seem to have quite an elevated position. Marion

susan said...

Wonderful views, Alice, thanks for sharing. Everything is so green and alive! Can't wait til spring here.

Kerri said...

You really do have some very beautiful plants and trees to look at Alice. Lucky you. I'll be over for an early cup of tea :)

Zoey said...

Lovely view, Alice.
I can smell "summer" just looking at it.

Sonia said...

Hi Alice, I am going around your archives and I found this beautiful view that you could see through your kitchen window. Beautiful, just gorgeous!

Our seasons are opposite to each other.
What a delight it will be to see flowers in January.
I have to ask...

Can we link to each other.

Thanks,

Patsi

PS said...

You'll have to excuse me.
I couldn't remember if I asked about linking to each other.
I keep strange hours so right now at 7 am I should be going to bed.
Have a great evening.
