Winter, Summer, Years Apart

Four and one-half years separate these two photos of our house. The view is of the back of the house from the garden. The first I took in January 2004. The second I took in July 2008. In four and a half years, we've changed some windows and made other improvements. Otherwise, it's just the same view in different seasons.

January 2004, our first winter in the house.

July 2008, our fifth summer in the house.


  1. I'll bet you're glad not have to clean those little windowpanes. My mother had a horror of that sort of window, for just that reason.

  2. Y'know something? As much as I like the green fullness of a tree, a winter tree has a poetic appeal for my soul. Maybe it's because I am at the last stage of life's seasons...

    Mais avec un Vin Rosé (mine is Blue Nun, Germany), la vie est belle à tout âge!

    Félicitations for Twittering. Could you convince Autolycus? I'm so curious...

  3. autolycus, spot on.

    claudia, I agree, but I still like it warm.

  4. You have a beautiful home.

  5. victor, thanks, we like it!


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
