The doors of Orkney

The doors of Orkney all look a little bit similar. Sturdy wooden doors without any adornments, and they all come in different colors. They reminded me of the ones I saw in Dublin. I think there the doors were similar. Most of them have also a window somewhere. Either on top or in the middle. I have to come back to these colors though. Some of them looked really bright. Isn’t that fantastic to have a yellow entrance door? It appears so inviting and makes me very happy just by looking at it. I hope these doors invoke the same feeling in you. Yours, Pollybert
