Thursday Doors – Behind the Hedges.

Welcome to June’s edition of Thursday Doors and in this one I try to capture some lovely old houses hidden behind the hedges of a quiet country road outside Derry City, Northern Ireland.

Most of the homes on this road are inhabited but this second image is of a quaint old cottage just waiting for someone to renovate and move in.

Some great shutters on this one. Could be the second floor as I don’t see a door there and that hedge is pretty high.

Fabulous arched windows on this house and palm trees do grow in Ireland, as you can see from the photograph.

This is a gorgeous wee cottage with a great half door and more chimney pots than windows.

It was the gates that caught my eye first with this house but those bay windows are so lovely. I grew up in a house with bay windows and love them. They add so much character, both inside and out.

And just look at those crooked gates. I’m sure they are meant to be like that but maybe they’ve been upcycled from an old fence.

Those bay windows . . . . . and that cute little one above the door, under the eaves. You’ll find some great links to doors from around the globe over on Dan’s blog Thanks for stopping by and peeking behind the hedges with me on this month’s Thursday Doors.

    I love the crooked gates! And the white cottage with the half-door and the multitude of chimney pots is MOST inviting!

    At first look I did not see this post, but it is a beautiful one. I usually do not like grey, but in your images, it looks attractive! Emille (Jesh)
