Doors of Provence

The beautiful doors in Provence could be a study unto themselves!

I came upon this blue door (above) in the picturesque town of Lourmarin, one of the Luberon hill towns of Provence. (This is the charming town where Peter Mayle, author of A Year in Provence, lives).

This lovely green door is in Gordes, Provence:

And here are two doors from the ochre-hued town of Roussillon:

Thank you, Gary. Due in large part to your and Sheila's kind encouragement, I am going to create 5"x7" greeting card sets of the doors.
