The Closing of Opening Doors

A photo challenge hosted by Jientje of Heaven In Beligum.
Monday when I invited you up to my front door you weren't sure what to expect during your visit this week as I took you around and showed you the doors here Round The Bend. Let's go through the open doorway from the living room into the sunroom and out onto the deck. You can see Heidi is already waiting for someone to open the screen door.
Out on the patio there is iced tea in vintage aluminum cups and yummy cookies waiting for you. Look Melli, there's even a chocolate zinger just for you!
When the cookies are all gone we can kick back in our chairs and listen to the music pouring out of the sliding glass doors.
The turkey vultures will no doubt be flying over the rooftop gliding in the breeze that is gently blowing around us.
We could just lay our heads back on the cushions of our chairs and stare at the sky.

When it's time for you to go please remember to shut the gate to the deck.


As you leave you'll walk through the arbor to the driveway.
When you get out under the arbor remember to turn and give a wave; because, after all, backdoor friends are best!!

Thank you Jientje for hosting the Opening Doors challenge this week. It was a wonderful idea for a photo challenge and you have been an awesome host!

I had glasses like that as a child, and had some after we were married...but my youngest daughter took them home with her cause she loves them. I told my husband I have to find some more cause I really miss them...

It's been fun to get to know your blog thru Jientje's door challenge. I love the photos you shared. I live in the country as well, where everyone comes to the back door! I don't know why farmer's even had front doors...no one uses them. So, if I ever come to visit, expect a knock on your lovely back door.

I was a terrible host!
I haven't been able to visit everybody back, and I even forgot to add the links!
Anyway, I really enjoyed doing this it was great, and I have met some very interesting blog friends, and seen very inspired pictures! Thanks!
