The view from Mary Layton's window, near Greensboro, North Carolina. She writes: "When we bought our house, we picked my studio based on which room of the house had the best light for painting. Unfortunately, it is a bit lacking in 'views'. So, I often take inspiration by peering out of my kitchen window into our garden whilst I wait for my morning tea or coffee to brew. This morning was a good morning for that. The robins are feeding babies located in the vines that surround the window, the bluebirds are feeding babies in their house (the baffle can be made out in the middle pane), and the goldfinches are courting -- you can spot one on the arbor to the left in the same middle pane. The middle pane is where all the action is, actually, for if you look closely, to the right of the bluebird house, you might make out our resident groundhog (who we think lives in the tall grasses in the distance), just before he scarpered in a panic at some perceived threat."
