Thursday Doors – Garden Gate & Dappled Sun

We’ve had some wonderful sunny autumn days here on the Hillside this week and in the early morning the sun is playing lovely games with light and dappled shadows in the courtyard. I thought I’d include  a couple of views of one of the wooden garden doors here for my contribution to Norm’s Thursday Doors challenge this week – one in the soft morning light and the other in the bright light of late afternoon, plus some details of course……. Thanks as always to Norm for hosting this excellent challenge……Garden gate and dappled sun 3

    1. Thank you badfish! The bush is actually a huge solanum which climbs all over the wall and even up onto the roof full of tiny blue flowers!
