Thursday doors

It’s that time of the week again!

Don’t the days fly by… It’s Thursday Doors.

I do love a door. Preferably the older the better.  A door where the wood is inches thick and the hinges and bolts are covered in years of rust.

In most photos of doors, you don’t get to see the whole building.  But I’ve found a door attached to a building – a very small one, at that……

Shed on allotment

This shed was on a beautiful allotment site in Winchester, UK.   I don’t know if other countries in the world also have this concept of allotments, but basically it’s a small piece of land that you rent from the council at a very cheap price.   There will be dozens, or even hundreds, of allotments together on land usually on the outskirts of town.   You can do with it what you wish – most people grow fruit and vegetables as an extension of their own garden, or they may not even have a garden.   I occasionally see allotments turfed with grass with a little sun house, so the owners can sit on their lawn and soak up the sun.   Some allotments look very unkempt, while others are beautifully looked after.  A lot of them have sheds where you can lock up your equipment and not have to take it home with you every day.

The shed in this photo looks very well kept, it even has a tub of spring flowers outside the door.

What do you think is behind the door?

    • Well, it’s part of a Thursday photo challenge where we have to find a photo of a door. I always like to write a little bit about my photo, where it is etc. To be honest, I’m not totally obsessed with it, just that it’s a nice photo!

  1. I love doors – and speculating what lies behind them!
    This little chap is clearly a sanctuary for an elderly gent (he’s not ageing, he just needs re-potting) who’s looking for a little peace and quiet….

  2. This is wonderful. I love old weathered wood and rusty hinges too.
    We have something similar to your allotments here in Montreal. The city sets aside public parkland for use in what we call community gardens. Each allotment is roughly 3 x 3 metres – ideal for a small vegetable patch. It’s mostly for citizens who live in apartments who don’t have back yards or access to land for gardening. It’s a very popular program with a bit of a waiting list.
    It always makes me smile when I drive past one 🙂

  3. As Norm mentioned, we also have community gardens in Naperville, although no one has sheds there. It’s a concept I love, even though we don’t participate, and in summer, it’s wonderful to go by and see the verdant patches. Nice door, too, BTW. 🙂

    • Not all, Georgie, but some see a shed as a place to escape.

      From what I know, anyone who has an allotment really enjoys the work. Those that don’t and choose to neglect their little area, end up losing the allotment so it can be passed on to someone else.

  4. Lovely little shed that. We have allotments here in Ireland but many of them went into decline in the past. Since the recession hit, they’ve made a comeback – no surprise. My guess is that a very large family of spiders live behind that door, which is why I never venture into our own wooden shed. 🙂

  6. What an interesting little structure and the door is fascinating. Perhaps, there are garden tools stored in the structure or a tale to be told just waiting to be discovered. 🌹 🌷 🌼 🌸 💐
