Thursday Doors

I’m using the colour red again for this week’s Thursday Doors. These photos were taken at Avoca Mill in County Wicklow. Founded in 1723, it’s Ireland’s oldest weaving mill. If you click on the images you’ll see a lot more detail, including a beautiful deep red climbing rose bush and an unusual wind chime hanging in the ivy covered little red window.

Here’s a link to a very interesting video, if you’d like to find out more about Avoca Mill.

Have a look at the doors that Norm has to offer on his blog this week and click the blue button at the bottom of his post for more Thursday Doors from around the world.

    How easily I switch from thinking blue is best to thinking that red is best. I like the red against the white. It works so well. Nice job Jean.

  12. You should take another trip there, Ali, especially if the weather is good. Then head over to the Meeting of the Waters, a lovely place to sit and listen to the merging rivers as they flow past.

  14. There are a couple of harrowing scenes in The Irish Family Saga books but nothing too graphic. She may not like the genre as it’s set in the Victorian era. The Finding Trilogy is a futuristic medical thriller I intended for the YA reader who wanted to stay clear of sex scenes and crude language. They may not be her cup of tea so a quick read of the samples on Amazon might be a good idea.
