Window Views and doors too



Seemingly once a door on a restaurant now closed and decorated with the Greek god, Dionysus, who is usually shown with grapes representing wine.



Dionysus or Dionysos (English pronunciation: /ˌdaɪ.ɵˈnaɪsəs/; Greek: Διόνυσος or Διώνυσος, pron. [di.'o.ny.sos]) is the ancient Greek god of wine, wine cups, wineskin, grapes, theater, and fertility. The god who inspires ritual madness, joyful worship, and ecstasy, carnivals, celebration and a major figure of Greek mythology

Mary, that's a neat and unusual door. I want to mention that the header photo makes it hard to read the blog title in white, though. Maybe you need some RED in it??
