What is In Front of Your Home.....

What is in front of your home, a street, a road, a trail or maybe just a path? I have a paved road.

A small paved neighborhood street with big trees that arch over the street, the temperature drops when you turn onto the street. I have several big trees in front of the house.

Concrete driveway/parking area is in front of the house, then a flower bed and a hill that slopes down and away. Flagpole, satellite dish, giant oak trees, mimosa, lilacs. Just to the right of the house, the driveway is dirt and gravel and runs about 1/3 of a mile thru the woods, with a hill and several curves, to the hwy and our mailbox. It's a 2 lane highway at the end of our drive.

A long oyster shell driveway...put in eons ago when they still dredged shell for roads and driveways, and then a paved county road but it dead ends at my gate. Several years ago the county widened the road....it was about as wide as a Model T, and spent about six months working on it. It was a horrible mess. I liked it better the way it was. Then they striped it. And now the sides have settled and broken off and grass is growing on it, and once again it is getting narrow. I presume they will come tear it all up again. I'd just as soon they left it like it is. The original road didn't crack like this crowned up thing they replaced it with.

A large wood deck, edged with azaleas, rhododendrons, etc. then a large sloping lawn with a huge old Maple tree in the center, and finally, a curb and paved street.

House is on a corner lot, and from the deck, we can look straight down the side street where there are geeese and cows grazing behind a rusting fence,(and sometimes the cows get through the fence and meander down the busy suburban street).

One of the main county roads, paved, going along the edge of town, and we look directly out to see big grain bins and Dakota Pea Plant with certified scales to weigh many fracking trucks. Never hear them in the house, and the drivers are great. Of course when they leave they have about 80,000 pounds of fracking sand!
Never hear them at night either.

I live on the fourth floor of an apt. building. All I can see is rooftops, tree tops and a cnurch steeple. I hope this picture doesn't come up sideways. For some reason every picture I take on my Iphone comes out that way.

Corn fields. Most of living is done in the back of the house though and in the summer the view is the deck with many planters filled with flowers and herbs and the swimming pool, in the winter it's about 2 acres of land with the back edge filled with black walnut trees. We see the black walnuts in the summer as well. We just don't go back there because of the ticks and snakes. Theres a marsh behind our property.

Another corner lot dweller here. So, my lawn, a sidewalk, a strip of grass and then a paved street on two sides.

I love seeing the pictures shared here. My view is very ordinary.

There is a Japanese maple in front of my kitchen window. Beyond is our bluestone gravel drive w/low yew hedge and six ornamental pears. Arbor vitae obscures most of the two-lane 'country' road lined with mature trees. The bridge over a small creek is far right. A century-plus American elm is far left. Across the street is our neighbor's six-foot euonymus-covered fence and their two-story white brick home and pool house. It feels more remote than it is from our town's market square and RR station. In good weather the ratio of cars to pedestrians and bicycle riders is about even.

A paved road, no curbs, then a canal, and an apple orchard on the other side of the canal...a nice view out my front window...very little traffic, as we live on a dead end street, lots of people walking...

I have a paved street with a sidewalk on my side of the street (gotta shovel after snows). My mailbox is on the opposite side of the street. In my town, all mailboxes are on one side of the street, a cost saving move by tghe postoffice. In my front yard, I have an ancient maple (4.5 ft diameter) whose top is starting to die, another younger maple, and 2 Colorado spruce trees.

I live on the bottom half, backside of a house. A yard with a huge drainage ditch, and on the other side of the yard, a really expensive (in my estimation) to attend school.

I have a paved street and concrete sidewalk. Across the street are lots of trees in the cemetery. It is very quiet. The joke is that people are dying to move into my neighborhood.

Since everyone is telling about everything they see from the front of their house and not just the road, I shall tell what I see from my front door. Small grass yard then a stone drive that comes up from the garage and back door on the right side, it circles around and then a fairly long drive out to the road. There are trees of all sizes on each side of the drive. I live in a woods. Across the road is a mowed very large lawn and behind and to the side of that is a field, this year it was corn. I saw two deer today in the woods.

Open fields with roaming deer year 'round with a log cabin on the other side of the fields. The people who own the log cabin are Christmas tree farmers so I also have a lining of those across the way. B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L when it snows!
