The opening of a nest is a door, isn’t it? Two nests decorate a friend’s exquisite garden, with flowers galore. Patches of glorious color.
Someday maybe I will have more gardening time!
Meanwhile, their garden is a door into beauty.

Two weeks ago I was visiting family in Dodgeville, Wisconsin. This is an art installation in town and the multitude of doors made me think of Thursday doors! Hoods, too. What day would we choose for hoods? I am afraid that many of the hoods I think of are grim, but these hoods are fine…

Thursday doors, these are my family’s cabins in Ontario, on Lake Matinenda.
First, the log cabin. Built in the early 1940s. I wish I knew the names of the builders. My grandparents hired two men. They built a fireplace and chimney, too.
The Little Cabin is smaller and was built somewhere between 1936 and 1938 by my grandparents, with a smaller room and porch added later.
We sleep in tents, mostly.
And the boat house has doors too:
A lovely trip, with layers and layers of memory for me.

Thursday doors. Norm is currently gone for two weeks, but I am posting anyhow… a creature of habit. I took this downtown two days ago. All the windows are tall enough to be doors.

Thursday Doors is away this week, but I am still thinking about doors.
These flowers have found a door to the south and more sun.
