Today we have a few more shots of what you see from your Back Door step. If you have just arrived check out the others here and here and here. The response to this challenge has been great and we have not finished yet either!
Kristy from Family Food Adventures has a view from her back door that is all children, wonderful.
Bill works on the land in New Hamphire. He has that beautiful open aspect that we all think of when we think of rural America.
Our Roger Stowell. An Englishman and his beautiful wife living in France. He runs schools for people who want to learn more about food photography by the way. Frankly I just want to go and lie by the pool. And eat the food!
The Colonialist is a writer and composer who lives beside the Indian Ocean and that is all I know, other than he does have a very quirky and delightful sense of humour in the Comments Lounge!
Below you will find the view from the back door of the house that my Senior Son Sam shares with his beautiful lady Jo. You may remember him as the son with the cat on his head when I was in New Zealand last. He has brought a new point of view to our back door wanderings. Instead of looking across he has looked up. It is almost winter there now and the trees are losing their leaves.
Below the tree is wild mint. He and Jo have only just bought this house so I am as interested as you are in the view from his back door. How funny is life!
sorry gnat is a woman of curious brilliance who has a pipe line into a side of the world I don’t often see. And this is what she sees when she steps out the door.
Sarah from Yorkshire was worried that her garden was not as gorgeous as some of the others. Your garden is beautiful Sarah, as all gardens are. I have always said that gardeners are artists with a canvas that is their artist twin. No I have not said that right. I mean that our gardens have minds of their own. If we can work in harmony with our location then it is not so much taming our surroundings as our surroundings taming us.
Giovanna from Blue Jellybeans sent me the picture belowof her garden in Madrid, Spain Her father made this for her daughter when her daughter was born 12 years ago.What a tremendous gift to be able to see from your back door.
Eva Taylor. Wonderful food with a wonderful European influence from a very gentle and cool lady. This shot is from the back door of her cottage. In fact there is only one door but it works for me.
Jomegat had snow the night before last! This was the view from his back door. He is in New Hampshire. If I were lost in the forest this is the man who would be able to find me. But SNOW in May!
Betsy from Bits and Breadcrumbs! Such a cool tranquil spot, somewhere close to Georgia, I think.
Anne who lives a life in mud splattered boots on a gorgeous working farm in Essex, UK. Beautiful.
Good morning I had more back yards loaded but then they magically disappeared when my internet connection unconnected which it does a few times each hour. Everything takes so long out here. But it is almost time to get up and go to feed and milk so I shall return to this wonderful project in a few days and reload them all then.
The rain kept coming down on and off yesterday but it was calm so we still had lunch on the verandah for Memorial Day. The other day Kupa had taken himself back in with the peahens so I went to let them out in the afternoon so we could watch them while we were sitting outside. They wandered about in a very well behaved fashion and eventually put themselves back in the Peacock Penthouse at bedtime. When I climbed up into the Gods to shut their door I found two perfect peahen eggs laid on the floor at the door. No nest just left at the door. They are big. I shall take a photo for you today. I took one and dated it and popped it under my broody hen. The other I left where it was. Do you think she is going to nest, right there in the doorway. It seems odd. They have some hidden nest-like places in the pen. Whoever is laying will lay four or five before she starts to sit on them so we have time to work out what we do next.
Isn’t that exciting?
Have a lovely day. More rain coming here but it is forecast to heat up so that will be interesting.
