I've never seen architecture quite like this before. It's very interesting. Nice picture.

That's quite a bird house! Looks like the pigeons have their own TV antennas too. The castle looks like it is quite a beautiful place.

That is one very interesting bird house, I've never seen any like it!

VioletSky said...

Kiwi-poette: it is intriguing, isn't it?

Lew: that is a lightning rod. the castle is rather elegant. I'll post pictures of it later.

Photo Cache: it is an attraction.

Jientje: no one knows what else this building was used for, except for the dovecote on the top.

VioletSky said...

Dianne: it is an odd colour and changes with the light, but I love the colour of the door!

Rajesh: and a massive wooden door that matches the one in the main house

Virginia: thanks.

Is it really meant for pegions?

VioletSky said...

Thomas: yes, though it is closed up now. apparently the eggs were collected from the nests and were quite a delicacy back in the last century!
