I was near the Haagse Bos and turned down a little street and discovered this curious Dutch Door with a large bat flying over the door. No one was around to ask…why the bat? Vampires indoors? Or just batty about bats? Or the quirky thought I had, a magical bat flew in from the near by woods and got stuck above the door by Harry Potter type of magic? Oh the possibilities! I love the dark green stain glass feature and the dark green of the door, so dark that when I was across the street it looked black. So a very mysterious door in Den Haag.

Quite Gothic, Susan, in some respects!
I imagine the scene behind the door as being somewhat reminiscent of the Addams Family. It’s more than likely not, but my imagination likes a good stretch every once in a while!
Same here. I did a double take on this door thinking I needed to wipe my glasses, but no, there it was a bat. They were doing construction around the front, new garden perhaps, so that keep me away from the front door bell! 🙂 one of these days I will knock and someone will open…I hope not the Addams Family!
I love that door. It’s gorgeous.
Will you be going to the PNWA this year?
The bat certainly gives it an intriguing nuance. 🙂 My husband and I are currently in Boston celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. I thought of you as I took pictures of some interesting doors. I think I even found the tiny, below ground level doors you showcased on your blog. Very interesting!
wonderful colours and lovely whimsy.
Thank you Morgan! Thanks for stopping by and visiting my little world!
