Outside My Bedroom Window




 Our Dwarf Powder Puff tree has a gazillion blooms, It fills the view from the window over our bed and
I tried to show you what I see when the sun is shining. It also fills the view from the kitchen window.


Had to raise the blinds. then get closer to the glass.


Not satisfied, the MadSnapper went out to TRY for a VIDEO to show you just how beautiful it is.

Ok, stop laughing Now.  I got the book out and read it, AGAIN! Have you ever noticed how funny we talk when we know we are being recorded?

It is ablaze with the most brilliant color. What a great view to have from your window.

I agree with the talking on the video thing. I did one once and showed it to hubby. He said who's talking? I just add music now.

What a lovely view to have outside your window! And thanks for the giggle ;) (reminds me I have not yet even tried shoot a video and talk at the same time!)

Declan said...

Yeah that's lovely, but I kind of liked that shot of your pool! Deccy x

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Hey Girl, You talk just like me!!!!!! We both have that Ky/Va accent!!!! ha ha

I loved both videos --especially the first one...ha ha

Great picture of the BLAZE of COLOR.... Love those powder puffs... SO pretty. (If that one is a dwarf, I'd hate to see a big one.. ha)

Hugs,
Betsy

Hey, don't knock how *funny* you talk, when knowing you are being recorded. I can't even manage to talk like I want, even then. -sigh-

Lovely, lovely views.

Is that the next door house, beyond the bushes? I can see why you planted pretty stuff, out side windows. Here, this house doesn't look-into any other.

We are on a corner, so front and east side are not flaked by a house. Our son's house is to the west, but so is our garage. And the one other side, the south facing side, is facing a garage.

I wish I could see MORE life, from my windows!!!! ,-)

What a great view at the beginning of a new day. It's nice to see that you are becoming a videographer.

TexWisGirl said...

you're so cute. i like your voice. :)

and that shrub is gorgeous!

Susannah said...

Oh.....stunning color! Love the video! Have a beautiful day, Sandra!

I think your voice sounds fine. Here in the south of England some people say we sound like Londoners and I think we do, so my voice is horrible, sounds like a cockney. Arhhhhhhhhhh. I've tried to refine it but it doesn't sound right. lol

You sound great. Me, not so much. That tree is ablaze isn't it. Beautiful.

Kim @ Stuff could... said...

I did laugh at your first video...since I had made the same kind of video, (saying I dont remember how to do it)
You have a nice voice to go with your beautiful flowers

Ginny said...

I am cracking up!!! You are so much like me! Fortunately, my newer Nikon P100 has just has one big red button on top, you push it for video and that is all. It is video for morons, which is what I need. Even Dummies are too smart for me! I could NEVER learn all that stuff with the big cameras! All this stuff about F-Stops and other settings, I get dizzy just hearing!! The bush is beautiful, it is one of yours that I have always loved. And in the second video, I love the way the sunlight and shade are dappling the bush.

SweetMarie said...

What a gorgeous view to have! I'm looking forward to mine being this large and colorful! We need to take pics of your grandchildren and do another post, so you can see them. They're really starting to take off!
You sound good on the video, but i know what you mean. When Kyle was little we made a lot of videos and I always thought I sounded funny! If anything it always gave me a reason to laugh which is great!
I hope Jake has a good check-up and you have a few bucks left over. LOL

Pam said...

Ha sounds so familiar.
Your right Sandra.. the power puff blossoms are gorgeous and stunning.
Nicely done.

Cheryl @ The Farmer's Daughter said...

What a lovely view out your windows! Does it have a nice scent, too? I hate to admit it, but I've never tried the video on my camera! One of these days....

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

Nice morning view, Sandra.

Coloring Outside the Lines said...

Beautiful view out the window- Don't give up on the video- you did great!

Ann said...

Totally gorgeous.
Yes, I do know how funny I talk when I know I'm being recorded. Not only do I hate the sound of my voice but if I know it's being recorded I lose the ability to talk like an educated person :) You on the other hand did just fine

Scott said...

Very pretty plant. Apparently your camera does not auto focus on the fly, but that's okay, we still saw the blaze of stunning color.

Jane said...

I am NOT laughing, because I know how that is to do from experience. I always sound so corny. You do not, I think you could have your own nature walk show!

Lida Swisher said...

I love the view from your bedroom window. :) It’s always uplifting to look at something natural from a window. However, is that tree distant enough from the window? I’m just worried that if not, and should strong winds come, it might hit the glass panel and cause damage to either the window or the tree. ;)
