Nancy Merrill’s ” Unexpected Windows” challenge description: Have you ever walked pass an opening in a wall or barrier and suddenly an amazing view opened up?
I was outside taking pictures of yet another snow storm. I’m losing track of how many snowstorms we have had so far this winter. When I remembered Nancy writing that an “Unexpected Window” is like viewing a whole different world, even if it’s your own backyard. Those words inspired me to take some pictures through the diamond shaped metal work of the awning on the back deck. Each diamond shaped window presented a totally different view of the backyard and each captured the beauty of freshly fallen snow.
I like to leave my garden messy in fall so that birds can eat the seeds from the spent flower heads. I am the messy gardener after all. I leave vines, grasses, plants & bushes uncut for the variety of critters that call my backyard their home. And it is home to numerous bugs, birds, rabbits, squirrels and voles which gives me know end of pleasure to watch their antics throughout the seasons. So many gardeners cut their gardens to the ground and tidy it up for the winter but I leave mine messy for the critters and when it snows it creates a lovely winter garden to enjoy.
