This is my front entry. Old school doormat from our local hardware store, basic Crocs. Minimalist, with a little earthy texture for good measure. And in fact, feng shui says that sandy yellow and black are good for my northeast facing front door. Bonus points!
I like a heel band, and holes in the body for easy hose cleaning.
This is my side entry, the gateway to a future butterfly garden. Improvised step, green Crocs. These shoes have taken most of the brunt of the last 2 years of intensive gardening. I’m still thinking about what to do for the step – most likely I’ll lay out a few large flagstones I have left over from paving the backyard pond.
Why we didn’t put in a step when we remodeled 23 years ago I really don’t know.
And that’s my back entry. The doormat here is from VivaTerra. Black river stones on a black rubber-ish mat. When I ordered it, I didn’t realize the backing was so visible, but here on the gray slate patio I don’t mind. In fact, I’m going to put a second, identical one right next to it, on the other side of the French door.
But, since as you may have surmised, I want a pair of Crocs for every entry, what style? Let me hasten to add, I don’t wear them anywhere but my yard. They stand by the doorway, inside or out, a threshold companion.
For the back door, I am tempted by whimsy.
Imagination loves her a liminal space.
