We live in a condo in the city…

….well not exactly!

Our condo is in a pretty neighborhood just south of Asheville, NC and we chose it for the amazing view of the mountains!

These geese stopped for awhile and as I watched them fly,

I turned the other direction

and caught this Pileated Woodpecker on a tree nearby.

Hi Diane!
That Biltmore Estate is something else but both you and I know, it never could compare to the beauty out your window. My mother would always look at a sunset or flower or animal and say...God sure paints beautiful!

Beautiful! Nice to "meet" you and thanks for stopping by my blog. Good luck on the contest!

I like your feathered friends! Your mountain views are stunning. We used to live in Mountain Home Idaho (two times actually!) and I miss seeing the mountains. It's hard to choose between the seaside or the mountains--you are lucky to have both places and travel between them.

Aren't you blessed to have this much beauty outside your window......

Hi Diane,

What a beautiful view you have of the mountains and I loved seeing the geese and woodpecker.
As we do not have woodpeckers here in NZ, was good to see.

Happy week
Hugs
