Fun Monday

Award winners....see the post below!!

Vicki from Catch the Light is our wonderful host on this very special Fun Monday. It appears that this is the one year anniversary of Fun Mondays!!! How exciting is that! You can read about the history of Fun Mondays on here.


Her assignment this week is the following:


Here's the assignment. For those of you who did NOT post a picture of your view from your front door, then your assignment is to post a view from your front door. To do this you stand in your doorway looking outside and take a picture. That simple. We (I) want to see what you see when you look out your front door.
For those of you who DID post your view, link back to that post you posted a year ago, and then re-list your very first post ever. We want to see how far you've come baby! Also, if you can, post the comments you received on that post.



Since I am relatively new to Fun Monday, my assignment was the first one.


Here is the view from my front door today. I am standing in the doorway taking the picture.
This picture shows my front garden and all the work that I still need to do, which I am planning to do tomorrow - cut back all my roses and perennials. It also shows the calm before the storm because an hour later it looked like this:


We had 6 Wolf Cub Scouts and their siblings over to make their Pinewood Derby cars. They were eating pizza in this photo so they were fairly calm. Twenty minutes later they were running around like wild banshees while their parents were in the garage making the cars....hmm...something is just not right here!!


Now head on over to Catch the Light and visit some other front yards. You have alot of visiting to do, the guest list is huge...you might want to grab a cup of coffee first!!

Wow, your view is GREEN! I enjoyed seeing that!

Kaytabug said...

ooohhh it is so pretty!!!
Don't get too jealous of my "spaciousness" if you look close in my photos you'll see on the far left the start of the house across the street.
I miss the green.

Faye said...

Hi Alison! Looks like you're quite the gardener. What kind of grass do you plant that is boyproof?

Sigh--now I'll go back to looking at snow.

Pamela said...

Hey - no fair. Green.
Lovely view - especially the picnic. Can't beat that for a January day in your yard.

my4kids said...

I love the picnic pictures! You have a nice garden.

Beccy said...

I love the picnic picture and in January, you are so lucky.

ChrisB said...

Wow to be able to sit outside in Jan is marvelous~ what fun.

It looks like you might live on a hill and the view of trees in the distance suggest that you are fairly rural~ there is always something needing attention in a garden!!

Hootin' Anni said...

Oh wow...looks warm and sunny at your house....not here!!!

Happy Fun Monday.

Aoj & The Lurchers said...

That looks a lovely garden! If you think yours needs work....wait until you see mine!!

wakeupandsmellthecoffee said...

Hey there Alison. I had to check out where you live. I figured Florida or California because nowhere else seems to be that sunny. Sounds like you had a fun day -- or the kids did at any rate.

mjd said...

I do have my coffee. Seeing your green grass is refreshing. We have a few more months before the green returns. I am glad to see the scouts are taking advantage of the warmer climate.

lisa's chaos said...

I love how your "garden" just popped up so quickly. :)

What is that flower towards the bottom on the right side?

Kaycie said...

My grass is brown and dead right now. Yours is glorious green!

Michelle said...

Love all the plants!! Everything here is all brown and dormant. :(

Bren said...

It looks so pretty and green!

Robin said...

I'm enjoying my second cup of coffee even while I "speak".

Lovely view, and what's better than a yard full of critters? And a picnic??

Looks like fun was had by all!

ellen b. said...

What a sweet view. Your garden looks to be in great shape! I love those pinewood derby car races!

Livin said...

That is a lovely view. I've done Fun Monday a few times, but it's been a while. I think I should start doing it again.

Livin' With Me said...

That comment above is me- I accidently hit enter before I had finished typing in my name- oops!

Sandy said...

Kids outside in the winter not in snowsuits or Carharts? Holy cannoli!

Great pictures.

Lana G! said...

Love it! It looks like your home is the place everyone wants to go to! That is awesome!

Linda said...

Ah, California - picnics in January... I do miss that.

Karina said...

I have to admit, I am jealous of the picnic in January shot...not anything we'll be doing here in New England any time soon. haha...

I loved the contrast of the two pictures.

The very nice man said...

Hang on a moment . . . is it actually warm now where you live?? If so, I wanna come and play!!

Irene Latham said...

What a happy scene this is... so full of LIFE...

Robin said...

Oh, don't you love sunny Winter days?

Beckie said...

Your view - It looks so nice!

We had our pinewood derby this past weekend. It was a lot of fun. How did your den do?

susan said...

We've still got some green, but it's too dang cold to have a picnic. Enjoy your warmth!

eclecticblog said...

green with envy! I'd love to have green grass in January and working on lawn...right now all I can do is dream about it....

Karmyn R said...

You must live somewhere slightly tropical (or downunder) to have such greenery right now. Lovely!

-Ann said...

Wow - it looks so warm. Are those kids even wearing jackets?

Willowtree said...

Hmmm, I'll go with the first picture I think...

Christine said...

Looks like you are having a glorious winter day! Makes me long for Springtime.
Beautiful shots!

Joy T. said...

I am laughing because I have three feet of snow in my FM post and I come over here to see all this luscious green LOL This just amazes me! Oh and great pictures of course :o)

karisma said...

Lovely! Looks like lots of fun!

lisa's chaos said...

Thanx for answering my question about the flower. I see it best in the first photo. Windchime, cool!

Debra w said...

Hugs,
Debbie
