I’m on a roll with having posted about doors recently, I figure since spring is here I might as well share a few garden gates to go with the doors.
Gates can be inviting i.e. The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett, there is promise of beauty and serenity. The wonder of what lies beyond. This time of year is especially filled with wonder at what Mother Nature has to offer. Even mundane (simple shrubbery) landscape seems to shine beyond what you might expect this time of year. It seems all leaves are fresh and green beyond imagination.
This iron gate (below) looks like it was made at the same time the fencing was installed…wouldn’t it be pretty on just about any fencing?
This is probably my favorite gate, but I’d want the ivy covered stone wall and the probable castle (just beyond)!
Isn’t the gate above amazing? It’s gray color makes me think it could be some kind of metal. It reminds me of a Celtic knot.
The detailing on the blue fence (above) is the same found on a picket fence designer Amy Meier shared with her readers a few weeks ago.
I love hydrangea. Maybe this gate would be the one I’d most like, provided I could enjoy healthy, beautiful hydrangea.

Do you have a garden gate? Is there a beautiful garden waiting on the other side?
