Knock knocking on heavens door! Sorry I have been up from 1230am and could not come up with a better title for today’s blog! I could have been woken by the four pickled onions I had for dessert. Before then I had an excellent take away, road lamb with garlic and vegetables from my neigbour Kate’s Canteen!
It is raining today so my walk has not happened.
I have always been fascinated by the brightly coloured doors in London. Growing up in Zimbabwe we had two very big dogs and if you got past them would be lucky. I don’t even think you could see the door from the street. In South Africa the door had an outer door which was a metal gate that locked, the theory I presume would be that you could open the front door and no one could get in and you could have a conversation through the gate. You also had to get through the gate and two equally big dogs! This is before gun crime and a lock down of a different sort! Which brings me to doors and wow they have some lovely ones in Teddington.
There are quite a few black doors which seems to be one of the colours that is popular. I like the two below mainly because of the wisteria. I must say I took these photos on my iPhone as was a little scared that all the jolly lock down people would think I was a stalker or paparazzi!
Having a front door in red is good luck. In Chinese Fen Sui, a red door symbolizes the mouth of the home allowing chi to be drawn to the house. In America a red door is a sign of a home that was a safe stop for travelers, this must of been some time ago!
I am not sure why the door on the right has a Christmas wreath, maybe they like to be early!
This was my one of the photo’s I liked most. Dual doors.
There is a road I venture on quite a bit as it has some really amazing super cars parked a Ferrari, Maserati and a converted mini van. I know I am sad. I did walk past this and had every intention of taking a picture of the door but got distracted by the dragon.
I am now off to do some constructive things, cook maybe!
