I am playing along with Bug and Pop's lovely "Eye Spy" each Sunday. This week's theme is from Cindy herself. She has asked us to show a favourite corner in our house.
This would have to be one of my favourite corners - right here in our upstairs study. Its where I write this blog.
The desk is pushed into the corner and there are windows on each side. They look out over the tops of some old trees that used to be part of an orchard. In the spring and summer the branches are full of birds. Today there were squabbling magpies and ravens, but in a few months - when the trees are laden fruit - there will be an army of rainbow lorikeets.
Sometimes, late at night, there are other visitors. It is not unusual to hear growling outside and then have a large, myopic possum peer through the window. I am not sure who gets the bigger fright.
Apart from the wildlife, I love this corner for the view. The windows are north and west facing and are quite elevated. This is where I take the pictures of the sunsets that you can see in the sidebar (link). Its a very ordinary suburban view, but nature gives it a make-over ever day.
Thank you to Cindy for hosting Eye Spy and for the theme. To discover other corners, head over here. (This post brought to you as part of Tinniegirl's Blogtoberfest - a post a day in October.)
