Secrets and Keys

I have never quite managed to give up my childhood dream of finding the key to the secret treasure trove.  As a child the ‘treasure’ would certainly have involved a pirate treasure chest, ancient maps, doubloons, pearl necklaces, a sword and a skeleton, that sort of thing. Nowadays I have already found some excellent treasure here on my hillside and if we could just manage to come up with a cheque to mend the roof  and a few centimes for a nice bottle of vino from St.Emilion all would be perfection. I suspect that whatever happens I will always retain my fascination for old keys.  anything in the shape of a box or potential treasure chest or an intriguing door.  We shared a few doors last week so here are a few interesting keys from my collection………….
