View From My Window


This is the window where my computer sits. That's a Bayberry bush and if I had been on the ball a week ago and snapped this photo, you could have seen it in riotous bloom, covered in tiny, sweet smelling white flowers. It's nice to sit here, the bush provides shade and fun for the birds. But I would rather have this view.



This is out my sunroom window, looking onto my bird feeding stations, lots of green and a nice quiet spot for sitting, relaxing and dozing off. The Hawthorn tree on the right is in full bloom; natures big joke I like to call it. Blooms beautifully but smells like old laundry.

I'm intrigued by your description of that Hawthorne tree. We've got these flowering trees in NJ (and they were in MI) that smelled of dead fish when they bloomed. At least to me.

Gorgeous windows--both of them!

I like the Bayberry bush view, myself...

yeah bezz....you wouldn't feel so intrigued by it if the wind was blowing the scent into your bedroom at night and making you question whether your laundry basket is indeed THAT bad!

It is just lovely to look at though....in full bloom it's nothing but a sea of white all over.
