In Sweden, there is a general recomendation that no-one should live more than 300 m from a green area. There are probably houses that fall outside of those 300 metres, but it's still nice to know that there are people who care enough to think about these things.
Here's a photo of one of the livingroom windows in my sister's flat; it wasn't meant to show the outside so the angle's a bit off, but you can still see a few beautiful trees in the background:
And her kitchen window is even better! Unfortunately, I don't have a photo of that, but it is absolutely lovely, the pine trees really get up in your face, and the grassy slopes will probably be covered in spring flowers soon.
When my dad was little, they used to have a squirrel come in through the kitchen window, and eat on the table with the family. I could imagine something like that happening in my sister's kitchen!
