View from the Kitchen Window

One of my all-time favorite threads on Chowhound was on this very topic. I loved the glimpses into everyone’s lives!

So here’s what I see when I look out my kitchen window:

Across the driveway, beyond the white fence, is a churchyard.

We have bird and squirrel feeders, plus bird baths and water bowls, and we scatter grains and seeds for the ground-eating birds, along with fruits and unshelled nuts. As we have no air conditioning, we keep the windows open, which means the kitchen is filled with bird songs, squirrel vocalizations, and other delightful sounds (and that tamps down the road noise).

I have a bunch of herbs planted outside the windows, so there’s those scents, especially when it rains. (I no longer cook with those herbs as we have a couple of feral cats who mark them - you can see one of them in this photo - that’s Emile.)

What do you see when you look out your kitchen window?


I love this idea. When I figure out how to post pics from my phone I’ll contribute.
We have an urban deer family that’s taken up residence here.
I’ve been a Ruth Orkin fan forever, and am always intrigued by various takes on a theme.
