There is a tiny hamlet not far from the hillside which despite its diminutive size, boasts a number of lovely old buildings, a ‘town hall’ or Mairie and one of the sweetest little churches I have ever come across. The postage stamp grounds around it are always immaculately kept, the hedges and bushes trimmed and clipped, the grass cut and in the summer time the pink roses and bright red geraniums scramble very neatly over the walls. The door is always open, the key left trustingly in the lock and a ladder is propped intriguingly against the side of the church leading up to the miniature belfry. I imagine these days the congregation must be as diminutive as the church itself but whether one is of a religious persuasion or not, it is hard not to notice the delightfully welcoming atmosphere generated by this little building……..
I thought it would make a nice contribution to this week’s Thursday Doors and I have included a couple of photos taken at different times of the year to show off the roses and geraniums. Thanks as always to Norm Frampton for hosting the excellent Thursday Door challenge – click on the links to view more contributions.
