From here, this is the view that I have to my left, through the west-facing dining room window.
The ancient pecan tree you see has shaded the back of our house since the beginning, I imagine. (our house was built in 1848.) At any given time, we see a large and varied number of birds, and a squirrel or two, doing something within its branches.
My Rambler Fence rose garden is on the left, just past the driveway. There's nothing to see there in winter, because the roses are sleeping. In the distance, you see the winter view of our barn ... 200 yards from the house.
The stained glass (which is where my Hartwood Roses logo came from), ironstone pitcher, and cat bed (where cats sit to watch the birds and squirrels in the tree) complete the scene. A perfect little snapshot of so many of the things that I love, all in one image.
Used the Waterlogue app to do something artsy with the image.
Today is chilly, winter-like at last. I plan to spend a little bit of time outside in the sunshine, tidying up one of my gardens. After that, the afternoon will be devoted to football watching.
What are your plans for today?
Sunday Snapshots are posts devoted to moments in time that represent glimpses into everyday life in Hartwood, or wherever else I happen to be at the time.
