Mystery

I had a few things swirling in my brain but frankly they are all pretty much drowned out by the fuzz of cold medicine. I really hate the whole sore throat clogged up nose thing.

Instead of an attempt at wit or insightful banter, I give you the chance to be witty and insightful for me. Come on, humor the girl clinging to the box of Tyelnol Severe Head Cold and the steamy cup of tea.

I took this picture on our walk this weekend. So, tell me, where does the door lead?

Either a garden or a grave or a grave with a garden. I love intriguing doors. Did you go in? Michele says hi from where ever she is.

Melessa said...

It's Bag-End in The Shire! Did you say 'hello' to Bilbo for me?

Sandy said...

LOL! Melessa that was actually the first thing that popped into my head when I saw this door!

I'll have to share later what it really is...of course later being when I ask Bruce is remembers specifically what it is. ;) I remember *where* just not what. I'm blaming the cold meds.

Maybe I should lay off the cold meds... the first thing i thought was a squirrel mansion... hmm

It leads to "The Secret Garden"
That is exactly the way the door to "the Secret Garden" Looks or should look!
Thanks for your visit and your kind wirds, too!

The picture is deceptive - the door is really only 3 inches tall, and it's a door where all the leprachauns go to hide the money they steal from the pot of gold at the end of the rainbows.

Get better....whatever you have, I don't want it - have too much else going in my house!

Old Old Lady beat me to it -- it most certainly leads to the Secret Garden -- my favorite book of all time, by the way.

Get better, you!

Oh, man... I was going to say a Hobbit House! Well, I'll have to think of something different.
It's a door that leads to a room where there is a table with a small bottle that says "drink me" and a small cake that says "eat me"... inside this room there is a really big door, and an even smaller door. You can't reach the handle to the really big door, and you can't sqeeze through the smaller door...
stop me if you've heard this one before...

Shephard said...

Oh, that door?
It leads to an underground cellar filled with wonderful old out-of-print books and fascinating maps to places people have forgotten about.

Fun post!

Door? What door? All I see is a window!

cyndy said...

It's the door to your own secret garden.
Get well...I've got the same thing going on...along with most everyone I meet!

The door sticks, moves a little then it won't budge, shoving it with my shoulder it creeks opens just wide enough for me to skinny in. The light puddles in though the torn and crumbling roof. High above, I can barely make out the rafters overgrown with vines and cobwebs. The air is damp and has a musty burnt smell, kind of creepy but still alluring in a weird way. Lucky for me I carry a flash light in my bag at all times. I push the button forward it makes a little click sound that creates a tiny echo, instantly the light hits the grimy stone wall right in front of me. I angle it around in the narrow passage and just a couple of feet to the left, is what appears to be a stairway. I look back over my shoulder at the warm sunny outside with all its freshness, and think ‘what the heck I'm already in.’ I quickly turn my head back inside and begin to walk towards the dim dank stairway. All the while wondering what am I doing?...

Get Better soon!

Melessa is right. It is the Shire; a Hobbit doorway. I love it!

Well, my first thought was that it was some now empty room that was used as a bunker or gunpowder storeroom. Then I read all the other comments abou the Shire and secret gardens and feel somwhow unromantic and unimaginative :o). Maybe I have spent too much time touring old military forts.
