Lookin’ Out My Back Door

Look out your back window or door — describe what you see, as if you were trying to convey the scene to someone from another country or planet.

In any other circumstances I would describe the view from my back door/window intensively/extensively because I’m good in words. But today unfortunately I can’t because I still having major problems with my right arm and my left is preparing to join in so, I decided I will let images do the talking. It’s a view from the back door of our sub/urban home. Enjoy…

  1. The back door of the house where I’m staying. Looks onto a small deck, ideal for drying clothes. For it faces south west. On that deck is a place to stand and use the line. For drying, a small slatted table on wheels a drying rack and a stand for pots of tomatoes. Past the deck is a small shed/barn and a little beyond that. Is a greenhouse for tomatoes, cucumbers and melons and a few of aubergine, or eggplants. Standing on this deck, looking to left is a child’s playhouse. It is attached to the other deck.. One that my son built for his son, the grandchild, a boy. It has a small plastic slide to take him down to the ground below. It’s the child’s space when he comes to visit. It has a good roof and carpet inside. This back door is mostly used for access to the garden below. Around the house is many trees. Ones of Fir and mostly Arbutus, or Madrone Some small Garry Oak hidden away. The shrubs are mostly called sea spray or goat’s beardBetter still, is the patio door on another side of house. A patio used for eating and sitting. Surrounded by small birds, mostly. There are bird feeders and water. So, it is a busy place from sun-up to sun-down. Cheers Jamie.


  2. Hope your arm can heal? RA is a nasty thing, for people to endure. Yes you are good with words, but images also. Nice looking garden! I hope your weather has moderated? Best wishes, prayers, etc, for recovery!! Cheers Jamie.


    1. Thanks for the compliments, interest and care. The forecast for tomorrow is 26 degrees which is doable. Still awake now at 3:14. Have to sit for a concert few hours from now. Part of socializing which we can’t avoid sometimes if we still want to be part of this society for the time being. Heading to bed now.


Be memorable. Say something unforgettable.
