From The Kitchen Window


Just liked the view the other day as I looked out onto the deck.


The shadows.......of a Spruce tree, and Tibetan Prayer flags doing 'their thing'.


Very quiet.


Very peaceful.......


on a cold February day.


And I just happened to pause


and noticed.

  4. Beautiful shots. I think there has been a pussycat walking in the snow, but the footprints seem to end midway.

    1. Hi Barb. Those shutters we got from an antique shop years ago and at one point they were used as kitchen bottom cupboard doors...thus the handles were added to them. We soon got tired of these and put them away till we added them to the deck fence a few years ago.

  12. Prayer flags, shadows, footprints? and snow, all making a lovely photo shoot, calm, serene, what we all need from time to time in this busy world, and maybe the words " stop the world, I want to get off" were what the little animal heard as he ventured to the corner.Greetings from Jean
