I just couldn’t resist taking some photos of this wee cottage for Thursday Doors. It’s near where we parked our car on our last visit to Killykeen Forest Park in Cavan (featured in last week’s post).
Nature is slowly reclaiming the space, as you can see from the image. I wonder where the descendants are now, of the people who originally lived there. I peeked inside the door but it was too dark to see anything clearly and I wasn’t adventurous enough to brave the creepy crawlies I knew would be lurking within, ready to pounce on me, at any moment. I could feel their eyes staring at me through the darkness – okay, so I’m exaggerating slightly, it’s the writer in me coming out.
The house we are living in now, and still renovating, wasn’t quite as bad as this one but it was getting there. You might have seen my previous images of it, with a curtain of ivy covering the back door and growing into the house through the window frames.
Eventually, our wee house would have ended up looking like this one:
It’s a shame, because it would make a lovely home, in such a beautiful setting. On second thoughts, it’s possible a herd of cattle might frequently pass by the front door. That would be a bit too close for comfort – for me anyway.
Thanks so much for taking the time to visit. If you would like to see a plethora of international Thursday Doors, carry on over to Norm’s blog, where you’ll find a blue link to them at the end of his post.
