Thru the Garden Gate....

Although Spring has well and truly sprung in our garden, my plants don't seem to have woken up just yet so I was at a loss for a blog topic. So, wandering through the powder puff that is my brain, I came up with a garden topic that has long filled me with inspiration - the humble garden gate....

I LOVE garden gates!!! I know I must sound a bit strange but there is nothing more interesting than a picture of a gate leading into someone's garden....where does it lead?......what sort of garden will I find?......is it real?.....

I have so many memories of white picket fences and rose covered gateways altho I have NO idea why. I never lived anywhere with such things!!! Maybe they're still to come in the future!

As you can tell, my tastes are very conventional but these struck me as interesting too. Firstly, simple and rustic ALWAYS work....

And this ... great for a garden FULL of trees or near a wood or forest...

And if you really love flowers .....

There are always places in our gardens where we don't want others to go so what about this gate? Looks pretty formidable and I certainly wouldn't open it without some serious backup.....

But, at the end of my 'looking at gates' journey which one would I want to walk through after a long day at work.... It would have to be this one..........enjoy........x
