Seen from My Window

One of my older cameras has a pretty good zoom lens so I keep in on a table in front of the window that has a view of the lake.

The other day I saw a fire department crew spraying water into the lake. I don't know whether they are testing the equirpment or just letting off pressure.

We have bird houses in our yard and little birds have been nesting in them.

This morning I saw a couple of rabbits in our yard. Here's one of them. Later when I came home from the store, I saw a baby rabbit near our driveway, but I didn't have my camera ready so he escaped having his picture taken.

Yesterday I missed another cute shot when I saw a squirrel carrying her baby in her mouth! She crossed our deck and went up a tree.

Finally some neighbors got the fountain working in the lake. It helps to add oxygen to the water, keeping algae down. 

By this morning, the spray height was reduced. Perhaps the nozzles are already clogged. In the final photo, we see Frank enjoying the view this afternoon.


  1. You may enjoy such a gorgeous view, dear friend !!!

    Wishing you a most lovely remainder of your week,
    I'm sending hugs and love to you

    XOXO Dany

  2. mighty big fountain.

  3. You have a lovely view in front of your window. That is a beautiful fountain in full spray. Looks like your neighbours have to keep unclogging the nozzles. The lake view is lovely even without the fountain. Have a good day!

  4. Hello Linda, I am now following you. I invite you to follow me too. Thank you.

  5. Linda, I love the photo of the fountain spraying! It's amazing when enlarged. Great job! Thanks for stopping by and linking up on not-so Wordless Wednesday with Curious as a Cathy! ;)

  6. Beautiful!
    Have a wonderful day!
