Flower bower

I spotted this door, adorned with a beautiful clematis, at a house on William Henry Street in Saltaire. I think they must use the back door to go in and out of the house!

If you'd like to see what the street as a whole looks like, look back a year to this link - that picture is of George Street, which is the one next along from William Henry Street, in the oldest part of Saltaire. The houses are very similar, all built at the same time in 1854.

I'm fascinated by doors - and am delighted to find a whole blog devoted to pictures of them. If you're addicted too, take a look at Cat's blog: The Door Hunter.

  1. I love the way you can find blogs devoted to the most esoteric subjects - I must start one about lamp-posts.

  2. It is so beautiful, like out of a picture book. I think I have said that before about your charming village/town. I like doors too.

  3. Cat is one of my blogfriends and I'm sure she will enjoy this marvelous door you found today; the door itself is simple, but magnified by the flowers! Have a nice sunday!

  7. What a great idea to train clematis to arch over a doorway, seems like it would be easier or faster than establishing a climbing rose. I love this! ~Lili
