Door to the old Manse

I like painting doors and doorways, but it was the old lamps either side of the door and the cascade of flowers above it which caught my eye this morning, in that hour when everyone is preparing for a new day, but not yet ready to welcome the rest of the world.

You may be thinking that it is an odd name for a hotel. It is actually the ‘Old Manse Hotel’, but the flowers have hidden the middle section. A Manse is a name for a house given to a church minister. This one was built in the 1740s for the Minister of the local Baptists. He certainly must have lived in style!
