j'aime bien cet auvent, il fait maison de banlieue des annees 60

They don't want you crawling in or walking in or falling in! It would probably hurt if you tried to fly in, too!

Auspicious entrance!

Gorgeous ironwork, especially overhead! How lovely to see that something functional can also beautiful (seems there's less of that now).

Jack said...

Isn't this appealing!

Bob Crowe said...

That kind of entrance makes a lot of sense - the sun gets through and rain stays out.

Michelle said...

I like that metal work. Very eye catching.

Randy said...

I agree with Michelle the ironwork is wonderful.

Dans le temps, on appelait ça une "marquise".J'adore les rideaux, les parapluies à l'entrée..!

I can't ever remember (with too many other words!) the French for that thing above the doorway...

Bonjour
Bel auvent.
Je vois qu'à Versailles, ce sont les grandes eaux !!!

It's a great protection for the rainy days indeed and it's also beautiful!

An elegant gate welcomes you and the lovely roof protects you from the elements, what a fine doorway!

Doug Hickok said...

Cool ironwork to decorate this fascinating entry. Wonderful selection for the theme!

that tiny parting of the curtains draws us right in.

Very pretty. Lovely way to protect one from the elements.

Very pretty doorway, with lots of protection surrounding it.

Elegant protection from the elements, I would expect nothing less from Versailles Ciel. Is it usually so wet and cold in your spring season?
