Thursday Doors – Beatrix Potter

For this week’s Thursday Doors I decided to post a picture from our bicycle trip in Scotland from a few years back. This picture was taken in the Beatrix Potter Garden in the village of Birnam in Perthshire. We were riding through Birnam and stopped for a delightful lunch at the Birnam Arts Center next to the Garden and across the street from the Birnam House Hotel.

I believe this is the front doorway to the home of Mr. Tod, the fox. I would guess foxes don’t have doors because they do not have opposable thumbs…

Thursday Doors – Lake Springfield

Lake Springfield (Illinois, USA) is a 4,260 acre (17.2 km²) man-made lake on the south part of the city. The lake boasts 57 miles of shoreline. It was built during the time period of 1931 – 1935.  Original lake cabins are a rarity these days, as most have been torn down and replaced with “McMansions”. One of the original cottages built in 1936 still stands on a small cul-de-sac. I took a picture of both the rear door, which faces the lake and the morning sun, and the front door , which faces a small park and the setting sun.

Next door to this cottage is a house built in the ’80’s and for a treat I am also including the front door to that one…
