from the barn

There is something very special about views framed by a doorway – particularly when the sunlight creates such a contrast with the shadows within the building. I am loving this stolen time in the French countryside. The weather is fickle, but the moments of bright sunshine have brought out the subtle colours and show this little secret valley at its best.
And how about this doorway? As weather-worn and age-old as you like!

Duck head when entering!

More ‘doorways’ later this week.


About apthomas

I love books, reading, writing, baking, chocolate, painting, sewing, people and fairtrade - not necessarily in that order. I am a lazy gardener - who loves the garden, and a lazy housewife who likes the place to be warm and welcoming. I live in beautiful Somerset - but have had to leave the countryside at a little distance, having moved into town.
