Hello. . . Philip on Aurora inspired me to start this thread. He posted some photos of his boat/home along with a link to this thread on Watercolor Forum (http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=324574). I looked through it and found it very interesting to see all the diverse areas. Rural, city, suburban. . . :thumbsup:

It would be so cool to see something like that in our forum, if anyone is willing. I posted a blog article today which includes a photograph taken last week of part of my backyard and the view I see.

It was suggested in original thread to post exterior photos of 1) your house/apartment, 2) your street, 3) your yard and 4) your town/city main street area. But I noticed that many people posted other things of interest in their area, things that they loved or that inspired them I am thinking :)

If anyone is interested in doing this, just thought I'd start a thread. I will have to take some photos to share!

Rainy, lovely idea. I'll have to get out and photograph the current conditions (20 inches of snow. :lol:)

This sounds like a great idea. It is always so nice and interesting to see where everyone else lives. We are all spread out all over the world so lets take a guided tour of some of those places. Having said that I'll now have to actually take some photos.

I finally got outside to take a few pictures. This is what my neighborhood looks like today.


My raised beds in the garden.

Here's the house across the street.

That's where I live. :lol::angel:

I started to post a video made in our downtown, but backed out because I wasn't sure I wanted to give up that much information. I'm looking for pics of my pond, flowers, and sights around home.

Cool pics Debby, duh just got the pun.... wasn't intentional. But it does look very very cold. I can't imagine living with snow. The icicles down the front of your house are amazing.

BRRRR. . . that is a lot of snow. We got snow three times in my new house since I moved in but it never was enough to last out an entire day once the sun came out so far. I bet its very lush and green and tasty (veggies and apples) in the other seasons.

Oh, the snow was deeper. That's after about 2 days of sun, plowing the streets and people shoveling sidewalks. We had about 20 inches, maybe a bit more. Then again, I live above 3000 feet. This is actually unusual. Most snow is less than 6 inches and given 2 days of sun, it mostly melts. The blessing is we rarely see triple digits in the summer. Mostly in the 80's. Growing season is about 3 to 4 months, so have to pick the right veges for the garden. The fruit on the other hand is "native". Apples, pears, cherries, plums and berries do very well here.

Nice looking place, Debbie. I'd like to see some summer pictures, too.

Here's a picture of my house.

I spend the winters at the marina.

Philip, that is so cool. Is it spacious inside like some of the newer RV are?

Here is a photo of the view from my back yard. . .

How did I miss this thread when it started? Nice idea...but you caught me just as I'm leaving home to travel. I'll have to remember this when I get back and post something.

I forgot this thread, too. . . one of my cactus is blooming. This is not a good photo but will take some more this week better.

Rainy, your back yard view is to die for! Lucky you. I am also very lucky as I look out over the Mediterranean Sea and the nearby mountains.

Rainy - I love the blooming cactus.

Eileen - I've always enjoyed your photos. Wow! What a wonderful view from your yard.

Take me off on a vacation and I forgot all about this. I'll have to see if I can take some photos in the net few days.
