Coming In From The Alley

We had a mild, cloudy evening Tuesday.  I was enjoying the fountain on the patio through the open door and thought I'd share it with you.  When I went outside, I decided to show you the garden as if you were walking in from the alley.  No narration as I wanted to let you hear the fountain, the birds and the insects.  You also get to hear the train and the neighbor's dog at the end.

  1. I enjoyed the video very much. Soothing sounds of the fountain, birds, crickets. We enjoyed our first cool day today - it was a welcome change!

  2. This was FUN, although I did feel a bit like a peeping Tom.

    Thanks for this...the punctuation of the dog barks at the end is perfect.

    Cheers,

  5. Thanks for the lovely tour of your garden. I love these movie clips of others gardens and am very tempted to do one myself. It sounds very peaceful there (train aside of course lol)

  6. Loved the tour. I smiled when I heard the trains. We always know we've hit "west" on our travels when we hear the trains.
    The fountain must be so relaxing to sit near. The dog--well, that's another story--LOL!
    :D

  8. I really enjoyed your video tour of the back yard - it gives me a much better feel for the experience of walking around, how the beds and views are related to each other, etc. The bird songs were glorious, too, and gave an interesting counterpoint to the train noises!

  9. That was very relaxing. I love the train in the background. It's nice to see how it all connects together. Plus the cricket sounds!!!

  10. Great video! And a question -- what format is it? I tried and tried to post a video of my monarch caterpillar on my blogger blog and it kept dropping off (the video, not the caterpillar)so I gave up. Someone said it had to be a YouTube in order for blogger to run it. Didn't really want to do that. Also -- great, great hummer picture in the right corner of your home page!

    I shot the video with my Cannon Powershot camera, put it on the computer and opened the file with windows movie maker. When I had it the way I wanted, I chose "save movie" "for computer." Then, I uploaded the new file I saved to blogger. I think there is a limit to how long of a video blogger can handle. I try to keep mine 1 minute or less. It's a .wmv file. Different software may use a different file extension but look for the save it for computer part. If you upload to youtube, you can definetely run longer videos, but I haven't ventured into youtube yet.

  12. Thanks so much for the video upload tutorial -- it took a couple of hours (I hate blogger), but I finally successfully uploaded the video! Now we'll see if it stays put.
