If the entrance is anything to go by with that lovely wisteria, the gardens must be an absolute dream!

Oh my what beauty. Interesting that you chose to focus on the open door rather than the wisteria. I find wisteria such a delight but its seasonal show is so short.

That's very intimate place. Nice shot!

We have been to the Oeiras Palace and its gardens. Hopefully it will never be a subject of your decay series, quite appropriately honored for this month's Theme Day.

I've got a feeling like you already showed us this place in winter... surly it's not exactly the same shot, but I recognize it. Love the shadow and I wonder what's behind the door...

So cleverly composed! You do have the photographic "eye." This is superb in every way; it's very interesting and the colors (muted) look ready to soak up all that light!

The foliage is etheral and the dappled shadows are a great balance.

What a beautiful and welcoming path! Those draping flowers are spectacular.

Like the door to a secret garden...

Ah yes, the wisteria. It's a magical shot. I agree with VP, a secret garden or a wardrobe...

You have the best eye! Fabulous, JM.

There's always a little mystery to an open door.

This is magical, one of my favorite photographs of yours ever!

White wisteria, all too seldom to be found.
