Weekly Photo Challenge: Door

Wollerton Doorway

You’ll find this plant-heavy doorway at Wollerton Old Hall – a magnificent private garden open to the public on selected afternoons. The garden rooms were pretty much at their peak, with traditional favourites such as roses, lilies, delphiniums, sweet peas, irises, phlox, clematis and hollyhocks mingling like guests at a garden party. 

I’ll be sharing more pictures soon, though a torrential downpour began a mere half an hour after we arrived, dressed to savour a warm summer’s day. The tea room and points of shelter were packed to overflowing in minutes, bringing the day’s photography to an abrupt, premature end.

A mad dash to the car turned me into a potential Miss Wet Silk Dress contestant – though one far too bedraggled to anticipate any prizes. Luckily my dress was made from a sturdy silk that withstands washing unusually well, despite the routine ‘dry clean only’ label.

My companions and I drip dried before too long, though several days later, I’m still rueful that we lost the opportunity to fully explore one of my favourite English gardens. Oh well, that’s an English summer for you – it gives me a good excuse to go back soon!

      The weekly photo challenge is a good way to make new friends on WordPress. Why don’t you share an interesting picture of a door on your blog as this is a special subject for you? Make sure you include a link to the weekly challenge page for doors in your post. That will add your post to the list for others to see. Good luck!
