For Thursday Doors this week I’m still in Fota House and Gardens in Cork. These images were taken of the back of the courtyard buildings.
On leaving the courtyard to check out the rear of the buildings I was delighted to find the place devoid of any visitors. For some reason the movie Labyrinth (starring David Bowie) came to mind when I saw this big old creeper. I think there must be a scene with one very similar in it.
The doors could do with more than a lick of paint.
On the other side of the courtyard I came upon this lovely old pump, standing in the middle of a large grassy area that I assumed was the orchard. It was close to a long building that was probably for storage of food and supplies, as the windows were tiny and barred.
Here we have a few more doors from around the estate and a cute little window thrown into the mix.
Many thanks for stopping by and if you would like to have a look at what other contributors to Thursday Doors have on offer, swing by Norm’s blog and click the blue button at the end of his post.
