Thursday Doors : Tamborine Topiary


It was the amount of attention to detail that delighted me about this door, from the chunky door knocker…


To the artistic touch and unusual design of the stained glass.


The house had been lovingly built of sandstone, with the very appropriate name carved above the door.


It was very appropriate because the garden was filled with spiral topiary.


I can only guess at the amount of time and dedication needed to produce such an amazing landscape.


Thursday Doors is a weekly feature allowing door lovers to come together to admire and share their favourite door photos from around the world. Feel free to join in on the fun by creating and sharing your own Thursday Doors post each week between Thursday morning and Saturday noon (North American eastern time

  1. What a wonderful little house – arts and crafts (with bells and whistles – or at least a very big knocker.)

  2. Pauline, what a lovely door, and gardens too. A wonderful contribution to Thursday Doors.

  3. That’s gorgeous Pauline, a wonderful choice.
    Just a friendly note: be careful when adding your post to the link-up list. You want to add the link to this specific post, not your main blog page, otherwise others will have a tougher time finding your door post. I’ve gone ahead and fixed it. Thanks for playing along 🙂

    • Thanks for the note letting me know Norm, I’ll be careful next time and thanks for fixing it for me. I like your format of having a separate page bringing all the contributors in one place.

  4. What a wonderful door!

  5. Absolutely glorious Pauline, wouldn’t it be a lovely place to live?

  6. What a beautiful place, Pauline! And I love that door 😉

  7. Pauline, not only the door is cool, but the whole place. I wouldn’t want to have to keep everything clipped, though!


  8. Bow

    Im the person who made the topiary garden and maintained it, and named the cottage, i also designed and carved the sandstone block that says “topiary cottage” above the front door, i designed &made the lead light too in the front door, amongst so many other things that made topiary cottage – my name is bow and thats why there is a bow on the front door.
