Datura your garden looks fantastic. what flowers are those pink up at left?
you should have seen my two pink Common Lilac in my garden at summer when they are full of flowers, man they are beautiful and smells so good. and they are ca 6 m high.
Thanks Crazy, you would love this garden, soon you will have yours set up as well , but you have to get through the snow first. The Lilac is one of those things I miss a lot.
Here is a picture of the same spot of garden, the window from above is on the right. You see the little pink flowers there, they are Mexican Corral Vine. When you let them grow wild, they can take over a whole tree, even a garden. Their roots are like huge spiders with long legs, crawling underground, the sections of those *legs* have large tubers for storing nutrients. Once you have them, you can never get rid of them. I like them a lot, but many people can not handle the wildness.
I had hoped that more people would show their views. But so it is. Here is another window. This one is where I sit on my computer, right in front of it. This is also where the squirrels chase each other up and down the trunks. I have never been able to catch them with the camera. The bark of these trees is rough, so the woodpeckers are frequent guests as well. It is nice to sit within nature like that.
The views from my apartment are ...less then inspiring - unless you like a parking lot or other apartments.
I'm going to downtown Seattle today, so I will stay on the lookout down there!
Great But you know, I think if you take the right angle, the right time of day etc., there could be something interesting. Close cropping and reflections maybe, cranks, peeling paint. All of those can be interesting in a photo. It is amazing sometimes how the camera glamorizes.
I love detail like that. It is hard to find in new places, the older ones have that charm. I do like the starkness of modern design as well, but it is very different how you look at those buildings. More as a whole. Photographs of both can be great
