This weekly challenge is hosted by Dawn from ‘The Day After’ who invites participants to post pictures of any windows that they find curious, inviting, photogenic, or in some way tell a story. Visit her blog to see more windows and/or to join in with the challenge.
Whilst visiting Stockton Bury Gardens in Herefordshire recently I also couldn’t help noticing some windows. The Tithe Barn obviously didn’t have windows, but does have huge doors. Now that it is used as a café new bi-fold windows have been added so that they can be open during good weather.
There is a window in the stable block, occupied by a pair of white doves it seems.
But difficult to spot them from the outside in May.
Budding wisteria in April
turns to dripping wisteria in May, and yes there is a window there if you look hard enough.
and a cute little window in the ladies loo.

Windows, doors – love ’em all!
Can’t disagree with that 😉
The little window in the toilet looks like an archer’s slit in an old castle.
That wisteria is lovely, I have a soft spot for that plant.
Great stuff as always Jude. Brief nailed once again!
Regards as always, Pete. x
Thank you Pete 🙂 Love wisteria – just had to go back to this garden to see it in bloom, and smell it! Such a wonderful perfume!
Each one is a little bit magical. I’m thinking Lord of the Rings a lot too 🙂
Well it is in the Shires Karen 🙂
These are exceptional. The wisteria really adds to the charm.
Thank you Dawn, I thought you’d like these windows, kind of like your vineyards. And the wisteria is just a bonus. A very fragrant bonus 🙂
The wisteria is charming as are the windows…and doors. Which do I prefer? Looking in our seeing out? Can’t decided. 🙂
That’s OK, you can have both!
Ha ha. I hate to choose and want it all. Where ARE my manners? !!(*_*)!!
The Wisteria hanging heavy over the window is my favorite. So lovely.
The fragrance in those bedrooms in the Manor must be incredible! (Header photo) – I’d love to have wisteria dripping over my doors and windows!
A wonderful thought Jude! I’m afraid not a chance of that in these cool parts of the world.
That’s a shame 😦
Lots of good things here like our wonderful mountains just not much in the hanging flowers 😉
Well, we can’t have it all – although saying that the Swiss seem to combine flowers and mountains quite well 🙂
Wisteria is my favourite after ceanothus 🙂
Ceanothus is a glorious colour, but is it as fragrant as common lilac? Lilac is doing very well this year too. Seems like all that water in winter has caused the plant world to explode this spring!
I don’t think it smells at all… but I find the colour arresting 🙂 Now if we could breed one with the scent of lilac…
A cascade of wisteria – how splendid, Jude.
Now why didn’t I think of that!
Love the window with the doves, beautiful shot. Of course, always love to see wisteria at this time of year, just gorgeous 🙂
Thank you Sherri, I liked the doves too 🙂
Are you still having problems commenting? I seem to be very hit and miss and even on sites where I have commented before! I have looked on the forum and support page but can’t find any posts about it that suggest it is a common problem.
It’s a beautiful photo. Today I had problems with a couple of sites and so far no reply from my comment test form. Also very slow in loading. As with you , very hit and miss and nothing on the forums. What’s with that? Making my way to your other posts…
Same here. Slow to upload sites and slow to save my drafts. I saw there was an issue with Talktalk users in the UK, but I’m with BT! I’m wondering if it is anything to do with the .org site vs the .com site? I shall have to check which ones fail. Such a pain…
I’m really cheesed off now. I’ve tried to leave comments on several blogs this evening and none have gone through, although they did on your site earlier. I’m with BT too! I feel like I’ve wasted an entire evening. Grrrrrr…not very happy….not been a good day today in other ways, one thing after another, including giving myself a steam-burn on my right wrist…well, sorry Jude, there, I’ve ranted and now I”m going to bed!!! Thanks for listening! Let’s hope tomorrow is better for us both…
Sorry to hear about the bad day – I had a spell of burning the back of my hand on the oven grill a few weeks back – nasty burns, still have the scars! The fan element packed in so I have to use a different setting which means the grill comes on, and I forget about it being hot!
Thanks Jude and that sounds nasty too. Kitchens can be dangerous places!!!
Let’s hope today is a better day…commenting ok so far dare I say… 🙂
