Lately when I read gardening magazine the designers talk about making a view that is pleasant from your window.
What they mean is that your garden areas close to the house should have a wonderful aspect from the back of the garden as well as from the front. I guess this means don’t put the tallest plants in the back that create a total block of your view. But it might also mean that one should think about the angle from which you see various parts of your garden.
This first picture is a view of my bedroom window.
This is from my bedroom window and a view I get every spring. The bottom of the tree is surrounded by flocks and strawberry plants. I did not craft it to be seen from above but I like how it has turned out.
This is the only hanging basket I have up so far. By the end of the month, my front porch will be filled with flowers. They are interspersed with bird feeders, including a hummingbird feeder that you can see on the top right corner. Because we are on the prairie I am always surprised when they come in for a quick snack. But they do and sometimes one of the hummers will take a quick break.
This is the shade garden that gets all of its light in the morning. A larger bird feeder is here along with the rabbit cage. We are not sure who but we do know someone was messing with it. Grass does not get into a water bottle by itself. So we moved the rabbit and it makes for a happy situation.
