Thursday Doors 19/5/22: Green doors from Slovenia and Trieste

I made it! With this post my one year of daily blogging is complete.

With this post we have made the full circle of one year together. Thank you for all your visits and words! I’ll be posting less from now on through the summer but will still drop by, for example on Thursdays. Be well, happy and healthy!

It was not pre-planned. When I posted my first blogging memories last year in this post on my previous blog, I wasn’t thinking about doing it all year long. But it made me happy to go through all my previous five blogs to see what I was posting on each new day. So I continued until today.

In this way I gave myself one busy and fast-flying year, but now it’s time I start doing others things as well. I’ll still be around, just not as regularly.

And now to doors. My door story for Dan’s second Thursday Doors writing challenge will come next week. Have a look at all the 12 entries gathered so far here. You have time until the end of the month to pick a door from the gallery there and equip it with your own words.

All Slovenian green and greenish doors below were captured between December 2017 and October 2018.

Before someone complains: yes, I know, Trieste is in Italy. Barely, but it is. Surrounded by Slovenia, but it is. I include two photos from there today just because my post with Italian green doors from last week was crowded enough as it was. One from Trieste involves murky activities of James Joyce. Have a look.

For the last time: This day in my blogging history

A Slovenian in Italy for love. Blogger, photographer, translator and would-be writer who would be a writer if she wrote. Plus reluctant but emerging poet. Beware.

  1. Congratulations on a one-year adventure in blogging. I get so tired any week that I include an extra post, I don’t know how you did it. This is an excellent collection of green doors. I’m still laughing at the though of you wanting a door on your grave. That’s so Manja of you 😉 My favorite photo is where your pup is leading the way to the door. My favorite door is the truly green door at the bottom – very sorry for you at the loss of your friend’s mother.

    Thanks for advertising the writing challenge. I look forward to your contribution.

    1. Thank you, Dan. 🙂 So Manja of me, hahah!! Brilliant. I’m glad you like that shot with bestia, even though it’s a bit blurry, and all the doors. Yes, I believe you that you get tired, it is tiring. I’m quite happy to have a bit of free time.

    1. Thank you, Sarah. Oh yes, Ljubljana is quite well-known for its secession buildings. (Which is how Art Nouveau was called around here, I believe. Just like in Vienna.) I was so used to it that only now I rediscover it with my away eyes.

  2. I enjoyed this collection of different shades of green doors. A lovely photo of the green grass through a stone doorway and tribute to your friend’s mother. Congratulations on completing your one year blogging goal!

      1. Well, what is going on in Ukraine influences everything… But protests against this old (rather dictatorial right-wing) government started a year ago and went only every Friday. Finally the will of the people was heard.


  3. Such delightful photos. I’m a sucker for arches. Was the nun operating the drone? That gate that you nearly missed because it’s so overgrown doesn’t look like it’s likely to be opened any time soon.

      1. What was the nun doing with a drone? So random and intriguing! Just for fun? Some utility? Will we ever know the truth of The Nun with the Drone? The world awaits in silent anticipation….

        I’ll check out the link. Thanks!

      2. Hihh! It seems you’ve got a story ready! Well, she soon closed the door after spotting me and remained in the monastery with the whirling drone so I couldn’t ask her about it (nor would I, I’m not used to talking to nuns). The world will have to await eternally…

      3. Well, I didn’t expect you to know, but it would’ve been cool if you did. I certainly wouldn’t have gone to speak with her if you happened to be wearing your “Shut Up B*tch” shirt! 😉

  4. I have no idea how anyone could post something every day. That’s amazing, as are your photos. Thanks for all the beauty, and thanks also for the idea of a door (with blackberries, no less) on a grave — for me, an entirely new kind of door!

    1. Thank you, Maureen. 🙂 It came about spontaneously and I rolled with it for a year. I shall rest now, not yet eternally with the blackberries though. 😀 I’m glad that you like the idea, and my photos. All well to you.

  5. You certainly are an inspiration Manja. Your words, your photos, your diligence in getting a post a day out. Quite admirable. I hope you enjoy your Tuscan summer. And how true, Tuscany is not a country for dieting. Thank goodness! Great doors too. Donna

    1. Thank you most kindly, Donna. Oh, where I live in Tuscany it’s half way to Africa. Summers are too hot. I’m not made for the desert. That’s why I have run away to Slovenia already where I’ll stay for the next three months. 😀 If I can score tickets, I’ll even see Luka play live…

  6. Yaaaayyyy!! Well done. I don’t think I could keep that up for a whole year. It must have been fun going through your other blogs and linking up posts through them. I’m glad you did though! A lovely collection of green doors again, my favourite is the distressed one. And I do suspect one of them is black 😀

    1. Thank you, Sunra Nina. They say black contains all colours. 😀 Now that I’ve slowed down my blogging activity this month, I found it insane how much time I spent on blogging this past year. I can’t ever see it go back to that.

      1. It was a remarkable achievement, well done. You generously shared your art and words and we enjoyed them. And it would have of course made you an even better writer 🙂
