Sketching some scenery from my house

The drawing book I've been reading has given me some more tips on drawing landscapes. It said that it's a good idea to draw the view outside your window because it's usually the most convenient. So I did but I didn't bother to draw my actual window, just the view outside even though the example on the book showed the window included in the drawing.

Later that afternoon, I wanted to do another landscape sketch so I took a picture of my backyard and went did a sketch of that.

I didn't want to add in that much detail though. Just the basic shapes, and some plants with leaves. It ended up being more one-point perspective practice.
