Today’s Thursday Door is a beautiful, ornate door from a garden house at Sonnenberg Gardens. I believe it was the house that Mary kept her birds as they had a special house. In reviewing a post I did last year on Mary’s Aviary it looks like a decent match. In this photo you can see a bit of the building that matches the pictures taken of the Aviary.
In general Sonnenberg Gardens & Mansion State Historic Park is just a beautiful way to spend a day. So much to view from gorgeous gardens to a beautiful mansion! This door has a rustic look that is worn over the years. The greenery around the door frames it beautifully and is a great accent for the leaves that are part of the door. Plus I like how you can see through the building to the other door. One can imagine a warm summer breeze flowing through the door as it is both ornate and functional.
The door handle has a lock so I would imagine at one time there was a glass panel. I hope you enjoyed today’s door! And be sure to check out Norm’s Thursday Door of a beautiful, old Montreal church!
