Thursday Doors

Here are some doors, residential and historic, from Post Road in the small town of Greenland, New Hampshire.

In the early 1600’s, Greenland was a parish of Portsmouth but was incorporated in 1704. The current population is around 3,500.

Greenland is a lovely little New England town with a wonderful greenhouse, Rolling Green Nursery. I just happened to be there yesterday picking up a hardy hibiscus so I decided to walk down Post Road and check out the doors.

Plantscursion + doorscursion = fun afternoon. 🙂 Have a great Thursday. I’ll be in the garden finding a good spot for that hibiscus.

As always Thursday Doors from all over the world can be found at Norm Frampton’s Thursday Doors, August 24, 2017.

    These are the definition of New England, Judy. That small town charm that instantly takes you back in time.

    Good luck with the transplant. I almost killed one last year, moving it out of the way of my snow blowing path. But, it struggled to life and recently started blooming.

    Great collection of doors. Beautiful homes, but the home owners sure have a lot of windows to wash! 😜

    I can’t make out what the “block” in the middle of the sidewalk is. Never saw that before. I would trip over it even knowing it’s there!

    I’m sure your new hibiscus will love its new home. Enjoy the wonderful weather we’re having.

    I just love those houses …. There is a definite New England personality .. Right down to the block in the pathway! Good luck planting your hibiscus, will it survive the cold?

    I love these. The library is my favorite – beautiful detail on the double pediments, with the appropriate book shaped decal to announce its 1897 birth! The yellow home reminds me of my own – same style, picket fence, nestled in trees. I immediately felt at home looking at it! I wonder if hosta plants flourish there, alongside the door?

    • You would love the inside of that library. It is tiny but they use every inch of space. They finished the dirt basement to make a children’s room. 🙂 I think you should create a Thursday Doors post on your blog so we can ooh and aah over your door and all the grandmas can also bow to your creativity. 🙂

    I wasn’t looking at your doors today, instead I was struck by the windows…… Oh boy, window washing season will soon be upon us. 😦

  10. I love that colonial architecture, and the porticoes of the church and library. I’d say it was a perfect day indeed!

    Historically impressive dates, Judy! There seems to be much more historic preservation in the Northern states than in California (in general). Thanks for coming by and “liking” my stuff:)

    • They really do take their history seriously up here. When we travel back to the Midwest, we always talk about the difference in the miles of strip malls and subdivisions of houses that all look alike except for the color of the front door and the shutters. 🙂

  12. So many pretty buildings. I love your new “scursion” words. I’m looking forward to a cakescursion on the weekend with a dear friend.

  13. J > Wonderful pictures. I really must make it to New England sometime. The old buildings reflect an era of principled public-spiritedness.

    Oh, thank you! Just when I was thinking the world couldn’t get any more chaotic and insane, here come the order and balance of New England. Beautiful.

    Small town libraries are the best–all these doors are so very Yankee! We were just laughing at our hibiscus last night–it looks like it belongs in Tahiti not in latitude 44!

    The yellow house is lovely with white details, black shutters and white picket fence. I have always dreamed of a butter cream color home.
    The red building for the Weeks Public Library is unique and my very favorite one today!
