You guys are the bestest, you are superb at stepping up and into challenges. Here are a few more views from the back porches of the Fellowship. As much as possible I have put on the links too, and usually there are more shots on those lovely pages if you want to see more!
Charlotte in Milan, Italy and her lovely winsome blog The Daily Cure. I adore Charlotte and named my pig after her! Just kidding!! Pure coincidence! She has some startling city views.
Now into the time machine and zoom over to South Africa (I think, am I right Mandy?) This is Mandy’s fern tree right outside her back door. Gorgeous.
Philosopher Mouse has a toad in her dog house right outside her back door!
And below are a few of the email people. From left to right and down, Grammom, Claire (from Promenade Plantings in Bristol), Then below is where Maggie has her breakfast in the mornings, across to Lyn’s fantastic glasshouse, she is right here in the US, then below that is outside Eha’s back door, and Claire’s garden again!
But some people have no cameras so there are few beautiful descriptions here is one:
From my back porch(Ontario, Canada)….the wooden yard swing under the maple trees, the arbour covered with bittersweet, soft lavender lilac bushes, some overwintered multicoloured geraniums blooming away, a tiny patch of my flowerbed for my one tomato plant, a cucumber plant in an old galvanized tub, close to fence so it can climb, a beautifully made white doghouse, sadly…. now empty…
Oh look Claire from her Promenade just sent us a blog page with this! Such a modern view. Wow. Thank you darling.
Linda from Colorado has a camera though, we know that because she shows us her farm most every day too and her blog is called Life on a Colorado Farm and here is the view from her back porch. And Linda, your cold weather came here. Yesterday I was back in the clown suit!
Joanna who bakes wonderful bread in England has a rather delightful dog called Zeb (her blog is called Zeb Bakes) so I chose the scene from her back door with Zeb in it.
Virginia at Bel’Occhios blog lives way over yonder in Canada. She also looks out onto a corn field! Now I can see why she empathises with my big views!
Deb looks out her back door every morning and sees a family of raccoons having their breakfast! Amazing!
How about we zoom back to Italy . Living in Italy the Blog. Exquisite. Clive and Damaris live in Umbria. Roses. Sigh. Oh, I miss growing roses.
Gerry Wilson ( below) is an author and this is what is outside the door where she works.
There is a very cool shot of two geckos on the same page and I was Torn.
Spain!!! Let’s go and look at Tanya’s mountain!
We will close with a New Zealand back-porch photo from my sister. She took this on her yesterday morning. Sunrise in Hawkes Bay, New Zealand.
Good morning. I do apologise if, when I push the special Publish button, the text appears creeping up the sides of the shots. I have run out of time and I have company coming today and don’t have the where-with-all to fast-fix this. Every shot has been sent in a different size, I know I should be able to adjust them without losing resolution but .. sigh. Remember to send your email images in nice Big packages. Now there are a few more, even more from New Zealand - how exciting. Keep them coming! So I will collate those and after a break with the farmy and friends tomorrow, (Daisy and Queenie need to tell you about possible developments) we will return to your fantastic back steps in a day or so!
Doesn’t this just open up our world!
Have a lovely, lovely day. Must run!
your delighted friend, celi
