A few more doors from my walks into town. Check out Dan Antions excellent “Thursday Doors” blog to see a selection of doors from around the world. I no need to get out and about to add a few more doors to the archive.

A few more doors from my walks, mainly to the music pub or to meet friends at a pub in town. I’ve been trying to get my fitness levels up after testing positive for Covid at the beginning of March, I self isolated for 14 days and that took it’s toll as I spent most of the time in the house. Managed to walk 6 miles on Tuesday and it was OK, so getting there.

To see some Doors from all over the world head over to Dan Antions excellent blog.

The flowers above the door caught my eye on this one.

Managed to photograph a few doors on my way to the music pub last Friday. Haven’t felt much like taking any images lately, but the weather was reasonable if not that warm, and the thought of meeting friends and some good beer and music spurred me on. Check out Dan Antions blog for a great selection of doors from around the world.

I like the slightly tatty doors the best.
Love the old Victorian villas that have names.

Great brickwork and canopy.

Another named one.

Two for one.

A nice textured Blue one.

In The Garden

Well it’s taken me a long time to shake off my man flu but I felt much better yesterday, the weather helped, it was actually sunny and quite warm for a change. So a catch up on the garden chores were desperately needed.

I read a few weeks ago much to my disbelief and dismay that garden plants from many DIY stores and nurseries have been treated with insecticides that can be deadly to bees. I really don’t understand this, one of the reasons I buy plants is to attract wildlife, not kill it. But it makes money for big chemical corporations I guess !!!!!!!!!!!. The film “Idiocracy” comes to mind. The good news is one of the biggest DIY chains in the UK is no longer going to sell plants treated with insecticides, hopefully the others will follow their lead.

After the lawn was mowed and shrubs were pruned I took the camera into the garden to get a few images of some of the flowers, they have had a hard time this year with the cold and rain.
