A time to share { What's outside the window? }

Sometimes I feel like I live in the boonies.  In my house, I have almost non-existent cell phone service and each morning I wake up to the sound of a woodpecker - pecking at the outside of my bedroom window.  My backyard is a forest that is home to multiple packs of deer, a family of not so shy raccoons, a red fox, wild bunnies, and I swear to you - turtles (there is a river and a lake just beyond the forest).  Rural?  Hardly.  Just a quiet spot by the river, at the end of a very long street in metro suburbia where life is busy, busy.  Which is why I've come to really appreciate the view from my dining room / work space:


It's green in every direction.

The gallery will stay open for a week, so you have plenty of time to share a pic.  If you're not familiar with the photo share widget, you can watch a video tutorial I made here.  If you'd like a button for your blog, they can be found up in the navigation bar.  You can also sign up to receive the newsletter for weekly updates.  Your tweets & Facebook shares are much appreciated!

I'm looking forward to seeing what you found outside the window.

I would love a pack of not so shy raccoons in my back yard. All we get are squirrels and a rogue cat or two.

But! We did have an armadillo pay us a visit a couple years ago. : )

Thank you for putting this project out here--I'm a few weeks late for the beginning, but really enjoyed these last two prompts. Hope you have a happy Wednesday!

This is lovely! Though I do have some green outside my window here in Brooklyn, all the fauna is mostly of the nasty rodent variety. :~}
