Weekly Photo Challenge: Threshold: to floral art

 Crowhurst Threshold  

I am using the ‘Threshold’ challenge to show two thresholds of the historic Crowhurst Manor in Kloof, Durban, seen last week on the occasion of a ‘Flowers in the Home’  (there was also food and fashion) organised by Durban Floral Art Club.    29032014433 Crowhurst

  While at it, though, wouldn’t it be a shame not to take you over that threshold …

    Stunning house but not wild for the flowers – prefer my arrangements less contrived 🙂

    I like the exterior more than the interior. Although I’ve always thought a staircase such as this one to be so romantic. I have an image of years gone by when women dressed in beautiful gowns abd glided down towards the hand of their man 🙂


  7. A splendid house, Col, and one which I would hate to have to clean. Lovely St Josephs Lilies. I have a pot of them on my dining table, and the whole house smells of them. It’s a bit overpowering.

    Nice house, but I am not a fan of cut flowers so found them overwhelming and far too elaborate for the setting.

    Nice, but I see a lot of dusting . . . and not nice flat surfaces either.

    Still, nice to look at. Thanks.
