From dining room window south facing.
There is another long row of windows running the length of the dining room (an orientation shot taken in Autumn when we were installing the water tank is below). This room was part of the southside verandah built-in back in the 1920s. It's pretty dumb putting a verandah on the south side anyway.
There is just one window in the row that fits my criteria ... something that opens to the world... so you are not going to see a lot of shots from this side. Through the window you can see "azalea walk" and more importantly the big elk horn. I thought it was an stag horn but now I understand it to be an elk horn because the web tells me only elk horns make 'pups' and this one has sure made a lot of them.
I am a little distressed with the state of this wonderful plant, it burnt off badly in the summer. Fortunately most of the brown bits have fallen off but you can see there is plenty of potential for improvement in the spring.
The tank is hiding the elk horn.
Psalm 42 (King James Version)
As the deer pants for streams of water,
so my soul pants for you, O God.
