Windows

The flowering cherry outside my kitchen window.
I am looking out my windows, checking to see what is in bloom, how things are growing, what is our weather. I can see the head of my neighbor's black lab sticking through a hole in their wood fence.  I don't know how he manages to make the hole, his personal window to the outside world, but he looks so darn funny with his head poking out. It will eventually become a doorway and he'll be out, looking for someone to play with. I cannot tell you how many times they have had to repair that fence.   



As an indoor cat, I am sure looking out the windows, watching the birds and squirrels at the feeders or the occasional shadowy white figure of a possum in our backyard at night, is an important part of Minnow's day. She sits at a window when she's waiting for us to come home.  We can see her jumping down off the couch as the garage door goes up.  She is going to greet us as we come through the door. 









Clovie has a nice low window in his room. Sometimes when I return home I can see him in the window looking out. I stop in the driveway, roll down my window and wave and tell him hello. Does he see me?

Everyone, man and beast, needs a window to the outside world.

I just happened to notice, mine really need to be cleaned... 



Sunset from my art room window.

You have reminded me that I need to get something tall for the bunnz to sit up on to look out the windows. They have their hidey boxes on one side of the room, but can't quite see out the window from them. I feel horrible now... they can only see through the window on the other side of the room ... into the hoomin side of the house ... living room and kitchen ... how depressing for them.

What a joy to see Clovie in the window when you come home! My heart races just to think about it!

Susan--how lovely for a mother to see her daughter share her sense of beauty with beautiful photos and original art work. 'Love' has given you such a wonderful gift to make the world a more beautiful place. Mom

What a neat photo of Minnow. And of course, the one of Clovie is delightful. The rest are nice, too.

Clovis is definitely looking out for you to come home... And hoping you bought treats today!

How delightful your words and photos today. How lovely to read your Mother's appreciation of your talents. You always give me a smile and lift. You and Clovie and Minnow too. : )

I am so glad a read your post on the windows. I did not realize how much my bunnies would enjoy lounging in a sunbeam. I always kept the windows shaded tightly in the sunroom because the Texas sun can be a death sentence for a bunny, even at temperatures below 80 degrees. Their living areas are big enough with enough boxes and stuff to hide behind that they can always get out of the sun, should some slip through, but I felt better safe than sorry. Well, I turned on all the ceiling fans and opened the shades for them. I noticed a world of difference in their perkiness and I find them in all kinds of positions trying to get the most of their bodies in the sunbeam. Now I know. Keep the fans going, ask Hubby to check on them during the day and let the sun shine on the bunns! :) Thank you, and the bunns thank you! Enjoy your windows, Precious Clovis!

6B-I'm glad your bunns are enjoying the sunshine! Clovie's room gets the morning sun and he has a nice red Japanese maple outside his window. His room stays pretty cool throughout the day. When we do get some hot days I close the blinds and turn on the fan because just like you, I worry about him getting too warm.
