Image caption Jacek Wosko sent this from Warsaw in Poland: "My view on a back yard's pathway, where neighbours are talking, respecting the quarantine distance between them."
Boy looking out of a window Image copyright Lindsay Oakes
Image caption Lindsay Oakes: "My son watches as my husband - a self-employed gardener - gets some hedge-cutting done in our front garden. Whilst my son always helps with the mowing (on his bike with his own ear protectors!) he stayed inside for this job then went out to help tidy up at the end. A welcome break from being with me all day whilst I work from home."

Houses in a reflection Image copyright Jonathan Reed
Image caption Jonathan Reed: "It's different because the view is the reflection of the window showing you the outside and the dining room light. Looks like an Alien ship in the sky."
