House View From The Other Side of the Creek

I would like to join Susan for Outdoor Wednesday. Go see more great outdoor posts by visiting her at http://asoutherndaydreamer.blogspot.com/
Before Christmas one evening, I looked out the back window and saw fire. I showed John and he called the fire dept.
Here is a close up of the fire. The location is actually on the other side of the creek so it is not that close to us but because of the leaves being too dry at this time of the year, we were concerned.

The fire dept. truck came. It's the vehicle with lights on the left side of the fire. And then it left so we guessed that it was a controlled fire.
The following day, John drove there after work to see what was going on and finds out that someone bought 6 acres of the property and is clearing out enough of the trees to be able to build a house. When John got home, he told me he could see our house from there. So, I asked him to take me there for I wanted to see how the house looked from the other side and I wanted to see the creek.

This is where the fire and smoke was coming from.

And there's our house. Recognize it? It would show more now after the leaves all have fallen but we haven't been back there since. It is a private property so we can only go when the guy, our future neighbor, is there. Can you see the creek at the bottom? It's pretty dry in this picture.
Here's a closer up.
another one
See how deep the creek is? I was excited since this was really the first time I saw our house far from behind.
and then we went home.
But first, let me show you our red Japanese maple, before it lost all its leaves. Isn't the color pretty?
One last thing I want to share is our rosemarie and camelia flowers. We had a dinner party on 1/2, so I picked some rosemarie to mix with my baked potatoes. While cutting up some rosemary, I noticed the pink and red camelias were both blooming. So, I cut some to put in a vase. Sorry, I forgot to take a camera and it was too cold for me to go out again, so I just took the pictures of the herb and flowers after I took them to the kitchen. I think they are pretty and it is so nice to see some flowers blooming in cold winter months.
Thanks Susan, for hosting another fine event.
Thanks all for the visit!
