Each window in my studio has so much potential. From my west window, the one in front of my computer, I can watch the dogs in their fenced in area.
Simon lets me know when the donkeys are in the north pasture by braying hello. Sometimes to Fanny and Lulu, sometimes (around feeding time) to me, he looks right in my window. The sheep are quieter, but I catch their movement out of the corner of my eye as they silently pick through the snow for leftover grain.
There are four windows on the south side. From them I see the chickens (although lately, unless the sun comes out, they stay in the coop) Minnie and Flo and the chickadees, sparrows, nuthatches, and cardinals at the feeder. Sometimes I even get a glimpse of Jon and Red heading out to the pasture to take a photo or do some sheep herding. In the spring, the lilac bush that grows in front of the first window will fill my studio with it’s heavy sweet fragrance, green leaves and purple flowers.
