Thursday Doors: Montrol-Senard

I suspect I’m not the only one who finds this particular image of a door slightly unsettling. It was taken in Montrol-Sénard, a very pretty village not far from here, which is preserved as a living museum of rural life as it would have been a century ago.

This particular door is at the back of a barn which now houses a collection – which could best be described as ‘eclectic’ – of bric-à-brac and various oddities owned by an obviously somewhat eccentric Dutchman.

I am reliably (translate.google.com) informed that ‘Ooievaar’ means ‘stork’…..No, me neither.

Still, it’s not often you see an illustration of the well-known saying ‘throwing out the baby with the bathwater’.
