Knock knock

.

This pretty house in the old Nachlaot neighborhood of Jerusalem is always prettiest in the spring.


As was usual on doors in the old days, the Hebrew letters inside the star of David say ZION.
I always wanted to try one of those fist/hand doorknockers.

Sun is going down now.  Time for the quiet of the Sabbath.  Shabbat shalom!

The flowers are very lovely on that house. Hopefully they smell good, too. I really like them.

Thanks for visiting my blog. To answer your question, yes - I try to post a picture of a spire from the many churches I see from where I live or on my travels. I'd love to see more from around the world. :-)

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

I just love purple wisteria. That is indeed a beautiful building. It must make everyone smile when they see it.
