"My yard, my peace-of-mind retreat. I love to garden and can sit out on my deck for hours just listening to the birds," wrote AnnBrennan. She shared her view just outside her kitchen window. We'll bet hat lovely scene makes washing dishes a bit easier.

DarlynDD named her picture "Colorbox." We thought it was an apropos name for this vivid window arrangement. "I love gardening and to experiment with flowers. Every year I try new arrangements, and each year is better than the last." Well done.

This idyllic summer setting was offered up by Natalie511. "Outside my window every Fourth of July, a neighbor anchors his boat with a simple but powerful flag." We don't think we could have orchestrated a more patriotic or soothing image.

Fun and Colorful Terrace
Right outside Dolfun's window lies a restful and charming sitting area for winding down each day.The scene is reminiscent of one you might see in the French countryside.

Purple and White
Marzepka's copper window box is teeming with delicate lavender and white buds. We love how the fuzzy foliage makes the entire display lush and inviting.

Buffopps submitted a photo of an area "near the back shore close to a lighthouse called the Head." We think the colors of the sky rival any flower.
