Such gloriousness in our ordinariness! We are doing a series on the views from the Backdoor steps of the Fellowship of the Farmy. If you are a reader you are part of the Fellowship. This is the third Fellowship Backdoor page! We are on a roll. If you have only just popped in check out Page One (my view) and Page Two and Page Three . You will be amazed, we are from all over the place! Join in! Come on Roger! Come on Sawson! All are welcome.
OK into my poor beleagured time machine, like the Tardus it is much bigger once you get inside, you will all fit, its OK! Deep breaths. Off we go!
New Zealand, up North of Auckland, lives Valerie, her blog is such a treat, as I have said before I adore hanging out with intelligent people. She grew up in England but has made New Zealand her home. This is her view.
My friend from Washington Chris does not have a blog but is a fulltime member of The Fellowship. And outside the back door in Washington State is her thyme lawn. I am deeply envious.
Juliet Batten is an author living in Auckland. Beautiful woman. Wonderful writer. This is her view. Wow.
(Sigh) I miss home now. We had better go somewhere else.
Jaz has a gorgeous view over her garden at Octoberfarm. She is in the US though I am not exactly sure where, except that she is cold there today too! She has a dog who looks like a combed sheep, Hairy would be so jealous!
Next: Australia again. New South Wales actually. This is Joy she has two Golden Retrievers and such a view.
Leanne lives in New Zealand. She has a farm stay and is surrounded in the most stunning cats and farm animals. Hence the cats view.
Now I am fairly sure that Natalia from hot cheap and easy is somewhere close to New York but do correct me if I am wrong. All these mini bios come out of my unreliable brain! Below is the view from her back door. So sweet.
The Blonde Gardener is in Arkansas and I am entranced. What beauty.
Home on a river. Unbelievable. This is Ecuador. If you have time to pop over you will be taken on a tour of the birdlife outside those back windows.
Our darling Lynda has found her very own little farmlet so she is submitting a photo of her Back Door View to BE! I am so thrilled for Lynda. Look at the view she will have shortly!
Isn’t that wonderful. OK, I know I have forgotton someone.
That is all for today but I would love to do another page. In fact as long as you send them in I shall show them! Colonialist (thank you for the tip on creeping text, now all is well!) – I have lost your shot but I loved it, so I will go on the hunt today and let me know where you live is it somewhere in Africa? and Janet from NZ I simply cannot find yours, though I know you gave it to me and I put it down somewhere but I need it, Wellington on a wet day is perfect! Equus from Chicago is working on getting the shot of her alley to me. No hurry darling. Now who else! Soph and Stuff you are on my list. But I just know there was someone else. I have time for another page if you still want to show us the view from your Back Doorstep. It is never too late – send in your pictures my darlinks. Remember if they come email make them nice biggish files.
Good morning. Today I am going to take photographs of the Shush Sisters for Spike! Charlotte is feeling much neglected. She needs to move into her own place soon. What was that term they used when they sent the Queen into a darkened room with her Attendants for about a month or something before they gave birth? Was it the Lying In?
I was thinking that if you wanted to start your own View from the Back Door page with your own readers – I would love that. I am sure your readers would rise to the challenge too. If you link it back to me then I can visit with the Fellowship. And our world will get even bigger!
It is dawning damp and cool, but these are great days for gardening. I am planting another tree today too, for someone many of you know, probably one of the oldest members of the Fellowship (in years.. maybe neck and neck with the Old Codger – I must check!) I will show you tomorrow.
Have a lovely day.
Your friend celi
