But first, it was seven years ago that Thursday Doors were born. Happy birthday and hurrah to us all!
I noticed it since I have the first anniversary Thursday Doors post in my blogging memories today. I checked and indeed, our previous host Norm Frampton started the Thursday Doors as a link-up challenge seven years ago. The first words in his first post with a pretty red door were:
Want to join in on the fun? Well now you can!
And so we are, still joining in seven years later. I wish to thank Norm and Dan, our current host, for starting and continuing my favourite blogging challenge and for all your doors. You are my tribe.
Today I continue my tour of the middle garden of the three which I visited on the IDSI open-door day last May south of Siena. One week ago we had a look around the garden and today we enter the pretty courtyard of the Castello Poggiarello property near Sovicille.
Imagine that all these doors are yours. It’s not on sale but you can rent your stay.
One other thing: In the memories you will notice a dog that is not bestia. He is Žak, our first dog. It was this time 23 years ago (gulp!) that we found him with the entire litter of ten new-borns in the trash container in front of my parents’ house, and raised three by the bottle while NATO planes were flying overhead on their way to bomb Serbia.
No matter where, terrorising civilians for the sins of their leaders, or for oil, is not acceptable.
This day in my blogging history
